lt cable collage

The Honeywell LT-Cable is a DC Cable that is meant to simplify the installation of the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5000, L5100, L5200 and L7000 wireless security system’s. To install depress the two tabs located on the top of the system and with the LYNXRCHKIT-SC backup battery unplugged take the LT-Cable and run it through the rear of the panel’s back plate just underneath the backup battery area ” you can use a zip tie to secure the LT- Cable to make sure it does not slip out of the back”. Once completed plug the male end of the cable into the female end located between the speaker and the terminals inside the wireless security system. The other end of the cable comes ready  to work with the 300-04705  transformer. For power screw the red end to the positive terminal and the black cable to the negative area on the transformer, plug it in and you will now be ready to power up your wireless security system.

When you purchase a Honeywell LYNX Touch wireless security system it does come with a standalone transformer but, if you are doing the installation yourself you will have to run down to the local hardware store and grab 22 gauge by 2 wire to complete the power up process. Not only will you have to go out of your way to get the cable but, you will also be responsible for stripping the wire making sure there is no copper exposed. With that being said, if you choose not to go with the LT-Cable there is the possibility of wiring your transformer incorrectly which could lead to your system shorting out. So here at GEOARM we definitely recommend using this LT-Cable to make your installation much easier.

 The Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-SHA High Capacity Backup Alarm Battery

The Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-SHA high capacity backup alarm battery is the highest capacity backup battery that Honeywell offers for its LYNX Series wireless alarm systems and is composed of 6 3700MAH, size 4/3 A, nickel-metal hydride batteries that are all connected in a series. The systems the LYNXRCHKIT-SHA is compatible with would be the LYNXR-1, LYNXR-2, LYNX plus L3000, LYNX Touch L5000, LYNX Touch L5100, LYNX Touch L5200, and LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security systems and these systems must have a AlarmNet monitoring communicator in order to be able to have your alarm system communicate to your central monitoring station even when your central power has been turned off. The LYNXRCHKIT-SHA will require 48 hrs of charge time before it can offer you the 24 hrs of backup time.

Something to keep in mind is the LYNXRCHKIT-SHA high capacity backup alarm battery is the fact that it is not the same size as the LYNXRCHKIT-SC it will be much larger. With this being said when you decide to install this higher capacity battery the mounting will be a bit different. So if you happen to be installing this in the LYNX plus L3000 wireless security system you will want to use the opposite notch to allow for more room. When you install the high capacity battery in a LYNX touch L5000 series and up you will want to make sure to use the slot directly next to the left of the original mounting area to keep the larger battery secured. When you receive your new high capacity battery also you will see the plug will be larger so make sure the larger battery gets hooked into the larger female port on the circuit board.

 Honeywell’s APL “Advanced Protection Logic”

Hey Everyone Brad Finger here with GEOARM Security. Today we will be talking about Honeywell’s proprietary APL or (Advance Protection Logic.) which is available with LYNX Touch and LYNX Plus L3000 Wireless Security systems.The L3000 must have a revision number of 21.10 or higher to utilize this feature.
Now,In most homes people will set there most frequent points of entry on delay mode. This is where you enter your home and the system gives you around 30 seconds to disarm before it goes into an alarm. Since the brains of the system are all consolidated into the panel there is a risk in placing your panel near one of these delayed zones. If an intruder was to break into your home through one of these delay zones they could run in, grab the system, and either smash it or throw it in a bucket of water rendering the system. Luckily with professional monitoring through GEOARM and the activation of the APL your system will send a ping to our central monitoring station every time one of these delay doors is opened letting us know the system is ok. Once you enter your 4 digit disarm pass code we will receive another signal letting us know you have disarmed your system and it is still in tact. If we don’t receive this final ping we will than treat it as an alarm and reach out to the emergency contact list provided by the client and dispatch if protocol calls for that. In our opinion this feature is a very important feature to activate on your system.
