In this video, Michael from Alarm Grid explains how to access Z-Wave programming on a Resideo Tuxedo Keypad. The Resideo Tuxedo, also known as the Honeywell Home Tuxedo, is a touchscreen keypad and Z-Wave controller for a Honeywell VISTA Security System. As a Z-Wave controller, you can enroll Z-Wave devices with the unit. This will allow you to control the Z-Wave devices locally at the keypad and include them with smart scenes for automatic operation. And if the Tuxedo is paired with a Honeywell VISTA Panel that is monitored with access to Total Connect for automation, then you will also be able to control the paired Z-Wave devices remotely using a web browser or an app on your phone.

The Tuxedo Keypad serves as a complete Z-Wave Plus controller. While you can technically use it without an alarm panel, most users will pair it with a system. Although the Tuxedo connects with a local WIFI network, it does not serve as an IP communicator for connecting with the AlarmNet servers. The Tuxedo merely uses WIFI connectivity for relaying Z-Wave commands to Total Connect and for receiving firmware updates. Your Honeywell VISTA Panel will still require its own AlarmNet Communicator if you want to use the system with the Total Connect platform.

Accessing Z-Wave programming is a crucial part of setting up a Tuxedo for smart home automation control. You use the keypad's Z-Wave programming menu for adding, editing, and deleting Z-Wave devices. It is usually recommended that you clear, or delete, a device from the Z-Wave network before attempting to pair it. A device can be cleared from the network, even if it is not actively paired with a Z-Wave network, or if it is enrolled with a different network. The Tuxedo will still show that a device has been cleared from the network. After clearing a device and wiping its residual Z-Wave data, you will be able to successfully pair it with the Z-Wave network. The device will then be made available on Total Connect after the next syncing process is completed.
