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!

 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!
