Honeywell L5210: Introduction to the Wireless Alarm System

This video is to introduce the all new Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 wireless alarm system. This system features a 4.3 inch high definition touch screen display with words and icons that are very large which makes it easy for you to navigate and understand the menu driven navigation system. This system has 2 hard button keys – which makes it easy to access the home screen and emergency functions if necessary. The activation of GEOARM’S total connect 2.0 with these systems can offer you some very handy add-on features such as emergency tornado warnings and traffic alerts. The L5210 display will allow you to view up to one camera on the actual display as long as you have the L5100 WIFI CARD internalized. Supported cameras are as follows ipcam-wo, ipcam-wi2 and the ACU “analog converter unit”.  If you only wish to view the camera from your smart device than any of the L5210 wireless kits that support tc2.0 will work beautifully with your supported cameras! With this system you will get a high level of functionality with z-wave Technology. This means you can control and automate your thermostats, garage doors, lights, locks, sirens and water valves from the actual panel itself or while using the Honeywell total connect 2.0 applications. Don’t forget to activate your APL or advanced protection logic also known as SMASH PROOF (This feature CAN BE ADDED TO INTERNET, CELLULAR OR DUAL PATH VERSIONS ONLY.

Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000: DIY How to Install the 3GL Cellular Communicator

Today I am going to show you how to install the 3GL cellular communicator into the LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security system. Note: Before working with your Honeywell LYNX touch L7000 unplug the backup battery and make sure the L7000 transformer is detached from any power outlet. Organize all of the contents of the wireless security system and the cellular communicator. You will be working with three screws, the 3gl module, and the cellular card. When opening all of these boxes make sure to keep packaging in re sell-able condition in case you need to return the items for any reason.
Depress the two tabs located on the top of the Honeywell L7000 wireless security system. I like to you use a small flat head screw to open the panel. Take the GSM chip that comes with the 3gl cellular communicator. Locate the side on the chip that says GSM. That part will slide into the female slot on the 3gl cellular communicator. Once that has been completed locate the 3 screw terminals in the bottom left of the system and as shown on our video. Align the screws and communicator in their designated slots. Once all three screws have been inserted your communicator is now in place. Locate the Mac and Mac Crc numbers off of the communicator and make note of that as you will need this to activate cellular monitoring with GEOARM. Plug in your backup battery make sure your transformer is wired correctly, seal the panel up and plug in your transformer and Call us so we can schedule your tech appointment to go online with our remote tech support!

Honeywell L5200: DIY How to Reset the Installer Code?

A common mistake diyers make while using there Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system is they access the programming mode and end up locking themselves out when done. This occurs because when exiting programming mode the system will always ask you if you would like the installer to access programming mode again. Typically you are supposed to say yes and then back out. Some people tend to rush through programming and end up saying no. This will not allow you to get back into programming mode.  This video will show you how you can correct this issue. As the video shows you want to make sure your system’s back up battery is unplugged. Once this has been completed you than want to unplug the transformer for a few seconds. Go ahead and plug the transformer back into the outlet. The system will go through a startup procedure this is normal. Once the system loads you will see the red standby notice at the top of the screen. At the time you see this hold down the unlock key for three seconds,  you will notice the digital keypad pops up. From this point you will enter clear 0,0 at this point your system will take you to the area where you enter programming. Now you should be able to select program, if it allows you to do this you have completed the process successfully! Just make sure anytime in the future when leaving programming mode that you always say yes to allow installer back into programming!
