Essential Info

If you have a Smarthome SecureLinc Home Security System set up in your home, you can mount a wireless keypad by your main entrance for easy arming/disarming and programming purposes. The Wireless 2-Way Keypad can be set up at any entry to your home, where it communicates your commands wirelessly to the main unit, and also receives status reports from the SecureLinc, so you'll know at a glance at the keypad's two-line LCD screen if any events occurred while you were out.

Note: The Visonic MKP-150 Wireless 2-Way Keypad will not function properly when the partitioning feature is enabled on the Smarthome SecureLinc 2 Wireless Home Security System or the Smarthome Securelinc 2 Wireless Home Security System with Internal GSM.

    Easy Control of Multiple Connected Devices
    Use the Wireless 2-Way Keypad to arm/disarm your alarm system, to initiate emergency/fire/panic alarms and to turn lighting devices on and off. This indoor multi-button wireless two-way keypad uses two-way encrypted coded transmission to the main SecureLinc unit, and it also provides aural and visual indications for easy confirmation. Since this keypad operates independently, a burglar can damage it without affecting the main system. In fact, if you program the system to contact you in the event of a breach, it will alert you instantly if an intruder removes the keypad from the wall or damages it.

    Flexible Power Options
    The Wireless 2-Way Keypad may be operated either by AC power or batteries (both included). If AC power is used, the device operates continuously, and the system status is constantly updated. If powered by batteries, the keypad enters sleep mode 15 seconds after the last key press, instantly becoming operational again upon any key press. If you choose to use AC power, the included batteries will provide backup power in case of an outage.

    I've had a PowerMax Pro system for about 5 years. The wireless keypad stopped working this year. It produces a comm failure error message which cannot be resolved. Investigation on the internet shows this to be a common issue with this keypad. While it certainly gave me 4 years of trouble-free operation, it's disappointing that I now need to drop another $120 for a new keypad which will likely encounter the same issue, perhaps in 3 months or 3 years. Only other alternative is to buy a different home alarm system entirely.
    ALEKSANDR -- new york, NY   1/30/2013
    Replacement solved jamming issue! Too little time passed to confirm that issue of device hanging during screen-saver is resolved. So far, so good. Easy to install and configure...
    RICK -- palm desert, CA   1/11/2013
    Work well as remote keypad and has very good wireless range
    ANNA -- bryan, TX   9/23/2012
    Once you've learned how to program the main system, programming this keypad is relatively easy. The only way I would have given 5 stars would be if it programmed itself. . . .
    rob123 -- San Diego   9/21/2012
    I order this product despite the range issues people were having. I have had it for 3 weeks and no problems so far. I have the battery's as well as the A/C plugged in. I will defiantly be adding one more in my master bedroom.
    WILLIAM -- ocean grove, NJ   4/8/2012
    This product does not work and have rescinded my order as a result. I'm surprised that it is still on the market given that the KeyPad Comm. Failure problems have been known for years.
    WILLIAM -- uncasville, CT   3/25/2012
    This device will not enroll with my Visonic ProwerMax Pro.
    BRANDON P. -- dundalk, MD   1/19/2012
    I should have got this years ago for PowerMax+ alarm system. I have this mounted by the front door and I relocated the main alarm system in a closet about 30feet away. It’s much smaller than the bulkier alarm unit. Works great, I haven’t had any signal problems that other people are talking about.
    WILLIAM -- burnsville, MN   11/18/2011
    Does the job, but I wish it would do more with the voice like the main unit does, and had the sensors for the proximity tags like the main unit.
    Bill D. -- Minnesota   10/24/2011
    I would like to say it was a simple install, but I can't. Get your own wall anchors for the mounting screws. The included wall anchors for sheetrock are next to useless. The unit is installed on the upper floor of a split-level house, with the main unit on the floor below about 10 feet over as opposed to directly above/below each other. Signal quality is poor and I'm getting messages saying communications have failed. I've already moved the keypad twice, and I've made note of where the HVAC duct work is in the house and made sure that the keypad was not in a location obstructed by duct work on the third try. I've found a spot that seems to work, though I find that if I'm standing in front of teh keypad while using it, it gets a communication failure so I have to stand to the side even though the main panel is on the floor below me and behind the keypad I'm using, so I'm not in the way of teh signal. It's a decent unit though and does the job it's designed for. I'm just little put off by the apparently weak radio signal on this unit, especially when I look at how much I paid for it.
    Rob -- campbell river, BC   9/28/2011
    Works extremely well when plugged in - will even give the voice arming/disarming messages when you click the wireless keyfob. It can run on batteries, but goes into sleep mode quickly and won't come out unless you push a button, and even the I had to replace them within a year. Fortunately, I was able to wire it without it being too conspicuous. Also, the wall anchors like on the rest of the Visonic stuff are useless - get some screw in drywall anchors or zinc stud-solvers instead.
    MARGY -- west hills, CA   4/28/2011
    Your service has been terrific. The keypad arrived quicker than I expected, but unfortunately, my system could not handle a third keypad. I returned it and was swiftly credited on my charge account. Your service is fantastic! Thanks.
    RAY -- brodheadsville, PA   2/20/2011
    Works as advertised, easy setup. The backlight setup is a little confusing.
    EDWARD -- sicamous, BC   9/19/2010
    Keeps giving a tamper alarm with the littlest vibration, even just opening the number cover. Wall anchors are cheap and just go into the wall board. This keypad is useless and I removed it.
    ERIC -- dubuque, IA   4/11/2010
    Only just installed but everything seems functional. Haven't used on a regular basis yet.
    JEFFREY -- shrewsbury, MA   5/4/2009
    One device came with tamper alarm malfunction. I'm waiting foe the replacement.
    DAVID -- boise, ID   9/18/2007
    Works almost as hoped...doesn't give status reports like the main unit does. It sure is nice to silence the main unit though.
    LENORE -- ogden, UT   3/2/2007
    Installed very easily and works very much like the primary panel. The power supply which shipped did not fit the contacts on the circuit board, but the CR123 batteries will probably power it for years anyway.
