Dont let your alarm system be rendered by this transformation.

Don’t let your alarm system be effected by this transition.

To all of our valued followers,

We really want to emphasize the importance of upgrading your 2G wireless cellular communicators before the sunset clause takes place. Existing 2G devices will no longer work after Dec 31, 2015 according to the cellular providers. Our sales team would love to assist you in finding the most cost effective and compatible route in order to keep your security system operating correctly. Here at GEOARM, we don’t want your property or loved ones to be left unprotected for any period of time.

Over the past few months, we have been sending emails to all of those that will be affected by this cellular transition. So, please check that you have received said emails, as this is one of our methods of contacting you regarding important security topics.

In summary, if you have an older 2G model, please upgrade to a new 3G wireless cellular communicator as soon as possible!

  • Push the two indentations on the bottom of the communicator with a tiny flat head screwdriver.
  • Once communicator face plate is lifted off look on the bottom left of the communicator you should see 5 pins sticking up.
  • Locate the blue bus that comes in the plastic rappers out of the box
  • Looking at the front of the bus all the way to the right is your power “red” and to the immediate left of the power will be the area for the ground “black” to be wired.
  • Run the wires through the back of the communicator and wire the power into its designated slot as well as the ground.
  • Slide the bus onto the 5 pins again making sure the power is all the way to the right and the ground right next to it on the left.

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.
