Total Connect 2.0 Tips: Creating Scheduled Event Notifications

Filed under: "DIY",Cellular,Honeywell Kits,Security Cameras,Total Connect — admin @ 12:37 pm

If you want to receive an email and/or text message during certain times of the day, you would create a scheduled event notification.

In this example; when the “High Value Tool Room” is opened during the night shift, a notification will be sent to the “default group” of users. This type of notification might be used when you want to be notified of an event that might occur during a certain time schedule when the security system is disarmed. When this event occurs (during the scheduled time), each member of the “default group” will be notified.

1. On the Events, Rules & Notifications bar, click the Setup icon.

2. Pick the event category: Security, Video, Automation, Admin or Timed.

3. From the Security > Sensor Open/Close event category, choose the event “Sensor Open”, then “HV Tool Room”.

4. At the right, click “Notification”. The notification info window appears.

5. Enter a subject name for the notification. Then from the “Send To” drop-down menu, select the user group to notify (ensure the “Enabled” box is checked). From the “Sched/State” drop-down field, choose “Always” to cover every day.

6. Since this is a time dependent event, click the “Sched/State Edit” button to set up the schedule.

7. The schedule window appears

Total Connect 2.0 Tips: Adding, Deleting and Editing Users

Filed under: "DIY",Alarm Monitoring,Cellular,Honeywell Kits,Total Connect — admin @ 3:35 pm

From the master user’s dashboard, you can customize each user through a simple edit, add or delete feature.

You can manage security system user codes and gain access to multiple locations.

1. Select users from Honeywell Total Connect dashboard.

2. Check the appropriate boxes you desire. By checking “Administrator” you will give the user the ability to add/delete users, “prompt for user code” will force entering a user code after you arm or disarm, and “display user code” will display the actual four-digit code to the right. See help document in upper right corner of dashboard.

3. Add email and SMS notification information. See help document in upper right corner of dashboard.

4. Enter the control panel user number assigned for the user. This is for email and event logs when the system is armed/disarmed and will display the user’s first and last name. If the “Enable User Code Sync” is checked, the “Panel User” field will be grayed out and the “Panel User” number can not be changed (master user only).

5. Check the desired boxes to grant access to system devices.

6. Click Save to add a new user or exit. Click to synchronize user data between the panel and Honeywell

Total Connect Remote Services.

Note: The LYNX Plus (L3000) and the LYNX Touch (L5000) do not support synchronizing users
