 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. If you have any questions please contact us 1-877-443-6276 and be on the look out for many more video blogs to come your way!

 Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200: How to Wire the Transformer to the Wireless Security System?

Today we will show you how to wire the transformer into the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system. You will need the L5200 transformer, the alarm panel itself, a 22 gauge by 2 wire, and lastly a flat head screw driver. Depress the two tabs on the top of the system, be very careful laying the system down because you do not want to damage the 4.7 inch touch screen display. You will see both ends of the wire will be prepared differently. The end that is meant to get wired into the transformer will have less conduit exposed and more of the actual copper exposed. With the extra copper exposed you will see that you than want to take the ends and make two hooks with the ends, this will help you when you wrap them around the screws on the transformer. The other end of the wire will be going through the back mounting plate. On this side of the wire you will see their is more of the conduit exposed and less copper, this is so when you place the wire ends into the terminals there is less of a chance to have any copper exposed which could short your panel out. After you have place the red wire around the positive terminal on the transformer go ahead and do the same for the black wire to the negative terminal on the transformer You can go ahead and place the transformer down for the time being. Now go ahead and run the wire through the area as shown on the video and wire the red wire into the 9vdc this is where your red wire will go and GND is where your black wire will go. Now close your system up make sure the two depressions snap together and your all ready to give your wireless security system power!
