How to Program a Honeywell Alarm

Honeywell home alarm systems are convenient ways to protect your home from burglary, fire or other hazards. After the system is installed on your home, you'll need to program it so that it will work to your specifications. For example, you can program the alarm to automatically arm the home on a set day or time. Once you complete the programming process, your home will be protected.

Set the Date and Time

Programming a Honeywell alarm allows you to automatically protect your home.

Step 1

Enter your four-digit security code and press "#" and "63."

Step 2

Press "*" when the date/time displays on the screen.

Step 3

Enter two digits for the hour, two digits for the minute, and press "1" for PM or "0" for AM. Enter the last two digits of the current year. Use the "*" button to enter a space between each setting.

Step 4

Enter two digits for the month and two digits for the day. Press "*" to confirm the settings.

Macro Programming

Step 1

Press "*57" before programming a Macro setting.

Step 2

Enter your four-digit security code, plus "#" and "66".

Step 3

Enter the Macro number. A complete list of macro numbers are listed in the rear of the user manual (see Resources).

Step 4

Press "*" to define the Macro. You'll see the message "Macro Pgm" on the display. Enter the set of commands and press the "D" key when you have completed each command. Repeat until all of your commands (up to 16) are programmed.

Step 5

Press the "D" key again to exit the Macro programming mode.

Create Event Schedules

Step 1

Enter your four-digit security code, plus "#" and "64."

Step 2

Enter a two-digit schedule number. For example, to program the first schedule, enter "01".

Step 3

Enter the desired event number, ranging from "00" to "07" (see Resources).

Step 4

Enter the appropriate code that corresponds to the event number entered in the previous step. For example, if you entered event numbers 03 through 07, you'll need to enter one of the following partition numbers: 0 = arm all; 1 = partition, 2 = partition, and 3 = arm common. Enter the partition code only if prompted by the device.

Step 5

Press "*" and enter the time and day that the event will begin and end.

Step 6

Select a repeat option and choose whether to "randomize" the event by pressing "0" for "No," and "1" for "Yes."
