Today we are going to show you how to install the L5210 all in one home and business security system while using the L5000DM desk mount. The L5000DM desk mount is also used for some of the other LYNX Touch panels including the L5000, L5100, and L5200 wireless security systems. The items that you will need to complete the installation are as follows a small Phillips head screw driver “not included” the alarm backup battery, battery mounting bracket, and your dc transformer these items will come with the LYNX Touch L5210 wireless security system kit. For the easiest DIY installations make sure to add your LT-CABLE this part will make your life a whole lot easier!
The first step in the DIY Installation process is wiring the transformer. When looking at the back of the transformer you will notice there is a positive terminal and a negative terminal. The red wire from the LT-CABLE will be inserted into the positive end of the terminal and the black wire from the LT-CABLE will be inserted into the negative end of the terminal. (Make sure this is done correctly because there is polarity on this panel so if done incorrectly you run the risk of shorting your panel out). Once you have completed wiring the transformer take your L5210 wireless panel and depress the two tabs at the top of the system exposing the insides of the system. Place your Transformer to the side for the time being.
Now that you have your panel open we will be working with the alarm backup battery. At the top of the opened panel you can see that there is a housing area, place your backup battery with the wires coming out of the bottom left, run the wires through the designated slot and proceed to clip the excess wire in the three clamps as shown. Now take the backup battery mounting bracket and locate on the bottom end of the battery mounting area the two slots. For this installation we will be working with the slot on the right. “The slot to the left is to mount the high capacity backup battery which requires a bit more room because it is a larger battery”. Take the mounting bracket with the end with the with the notch insert that to the designated slot and push with your thumb lining up the screw hole. Take your Phillips head screw driver and proceed to screw in the mounting plate securing the battery. ( Do not plug in backup battery at this time).
Close the alarm panel but, not all the way and place the system on its LCD screen so you can see the back mounting plate. Notice the four mounting notches located in the middle of the mounting bracket. Now take your L5000DM desk mount which will have four mounting shoes, align those with the back plate mounting holes and slide the L5000DM upwards locking it into place. Take the panel flip it upright so it is seated on the desk mount. Expose the insides of the alarm system, take the unplugged LT-CABLE male end run it through the back of the desk mount and l5210 panel, go ahead and plug the male end of the LT-CABLE and plug it into the female end of the L5210 panel as shown. Insert all of your accessories such as 3gl cellular communicator, L5100-WIFI etc.. Next, we can plug the transformer in giving the alarm panel power. While the panel is booting up you can plug in the alarm backup battery and seal the panel up. While the panel is going through its booting process you hold down the solid home button for a few seconds which will expedite the booting process allowing you to manipulate your LCD keypad.
Congratulations you have just completed the DIY Installation of the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 Wireless security system using your L5000DM desk mount!
