How to find your Ademco model number


This is just an example of the effort that Alarm Tech Online goes through for our Members to put together Step by Step documents for the homeowner. Alarm Tech Online strives to make all the manuals that are writing for the professional alarm instiller, easy to understand for the DIY 'err.

Step One


Locate your Ademco keypad

If your keypad looks similar to this then you will need to locate the main control panel. See Locating the control panel below.


If your keypad looks like this you have an Ademco Lynx system. The instructions for changing the codes are the same on all the Ademco Lynx systems.


Step Two


Locating the Ademco control panel.

Most Ademco systems will have a Control Panel that will look like this and is normally located in a closet or basement. Once you locate this, move on to step three. See below


Step Three

Find the Ademco Model Number

Once you find the Ademco control panel, on the inside cover of the control panel you will see a wiring diagram similar to the one below. The model number of your system will be on this diagram.

The diagram will show the model number then say Summary Of Connections. You can also check the chip on the main board to find the model number and revision number See below.

" I am SO happy I found this site! After numerous calls to other alarm companies to come reset my system; without success unless I sign a contract with them, I started looking online. I found this site, and I found EVERYTHING I needed to reset the system myself. The website is very easy to navigate. Knowing your model # makes it even easier! I even got information to re-program my keypad. This is such a huge help to a new homeowner with an existing system and no prior documentation. I am so excited and cant wait to get home & start programming! THANK YOU SO MUCH!"

"I was having problems trouble shooting the 4110XM. I needed Technical Support; but it was the weekend and no one was open or available to me. I found this site on Sat. I bought a Membership on Sun. and with in an hour I found the information I needed and was able to fix the problem. I would strongly urge any installer use the information contained in this site. It is informative, easy to use and understand. Thanks!"
