Swap out exiting Honeywell 6160 keypad with a new Honeywell 6290W touchscreen keypad?

Hello,

We had Xfinity take over monitoring and swap out our existing wired alarm panel and 2 wall mounted keypads. The keypads that were installed as part of the Xfinitry install are Honeywell 6160s.

 

I want to replace one of the 6160s with a new Honeywell 6290W touchscreen control panel. Looking at online videos it seems like a simple replacement, but I was warned about the "I-Control device" that was installed as part of the Xfinity system that can complicate a ECP touchscreen connection.

 

Anyone have any experience adding a Honeywell 6290W or replacing a 6160 with a touchscreen on their Xfinity installed and monitored system?

dreston -

 

I would caution against doing this - while I do not know if this model would technicially work or not work with your setup, I can tell you that this is a device we don't stock or support.

 

If you begin having trouble with your system, it could complicate our ability to help you - or worse yet, cause issues with the system working properly.
