PK 5500 keypad low temperature alarm
« on: February 06, 2019, 01:59:47 PM »
I'm looking for help setting up the low temperature alarm in the  PK5500 keypad.

The only thing that I've found so far is in keypad programming sections 076 option 5 and section 076 option 8. What do I have to do to set-up the low temp alarm besides turning these options on ?

I can't help you, but what is the purpose/advantage of doing that?

Section 077 8 on, program zone # you want it to be in section 020 of panel installation manual for slot # of that keypad, define zone as a 20. One thing to note is that you cannot also have a regular kp zone wired into the z terminal, triggers around 40-42F resets at about 46, also note, it will sound your main bell output by default, I think you can define it as a 10 if you just want a buzzer, different transmission definitions to central if using automatic codes

freemont611 , Thank  you for the quick reply.


VR46 , The purpose of setting the  low temperature is to get a warning of low temp in your home when you are on vacation and the outside temp with wind chill is -42F and your furnace dies.

Ah OK, furnace failure makes sense.

I wired a programmable temp switch to my clothes dryer ducting that triggers my DSC if temp. goes above max (clogged duct), or below minimum (close to freezing).

long wire and a freezer is the only way I have been able to test it
