Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 Wireless Security System Introduction

The all new Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security system has finally been released to the public. This all-in-one robust wireless security system sports some very innovative feature’s including a new 7 inch touchscreen display which is a huge step up from the also recently released Honeywell L5200 system which is at 4.7 inches. Honeywell not only increased the size of the touchscreen display for overall navigation purposes but they had a larger picture in mind. They were able to allow four cameras to be viewed on the actual 7 inch touchscreen display. This is huge so you don’t have to jump from camera to camera to get an idea of what is going on at your property. Keep in mind that in order to use this feature it is necessary for you to add the Honeywell L5100-Wifi card or you will only be able to view these video clips on your Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 application.

The Honeywell L7000 wireless security system has also been given some major upgrades in the sense of the amount of zones you can program into the security system. In previous Honeywell LYNX Touch security systems you would have a maximum of 64 wireless sensors now you are looking at a total of 80 wireless zones with one hardwired zone that can be used for a normally closed sensor such as a door contact. This may not apply to the average consumer but, for a business or a large home this may be just the answer for you. Lastly the Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security system is able to handle one extra garage door totaling 4 and one extra thermostat totaling four as well. Previous models of LYNX touch where only able to handle 3 thermostats and 3 garage doors.

All in all this is the premiere Honeywell all-in-one wireless security system and has been given the best in show at Electronic Security expo this year.

Introducing the Honeywell L5200 Wireless Security System

The Honeywell L5200 is one of the latest wireless alarm systems to hit the market. The 5200 system is a lovely addition to Honeywell’s LYNX series wireless panels. This system has added many key features that will change the consumers notions about what a quality alarm system will offer from now on. Not only with the sleeker new look but, also the way the system connects with the consumer.

The 5200 system offers some of the same features as the 5100 system. Both of these systems offer a 4.7 inch touchscreen display with the same resolution and amount of colors that are offered. The 5100 system also, offer’s the same amount of zone capabilities 64 total zones, 48 of them programmable while 16 of them are designated for key fob zones. These two systems also have similarities in the ability to use z wave devices in conjunction with home automation services offered by alarm net.

The L5200 wireless alarm system offers abilities and features that previous systems did not. Most importantly the l5200 system sets itself apart with its flash upgradable abilities. Geoarm thinks this is a magnificent addition to the LYNX series panels. This will allow the consumers the availability to have all of the new updates that Honeywell releases without needing a cable, or a technician to download the update which can take 3-12 hours to complete and would not allow the user to use interactive services. Most would say that this feature would be hard to match with its convenience factor but, Honeywell has surprised us again with the 5200’s ability to view a camera from the 4.7 inch display!
