Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 : How to Program the 5834-2 Wireless Keyfob?

Today we are going to show you how to program the Honeywell 5834-2 2 button wireless key transmitter into the LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security system. To start we are going to hit the security button, than in the bottom left of the screen select more followed by the tools button. Once you select tools you will be prompted to enter a code. You wont want to use a master or user code. Here you will want to enter your installer code which by default is 4112. So go ahead and enter that code once it is entered you will see a screen prompt up. From this menu you will be selecting the program button which will get you into programming. From programming select keys because we are working with a keyfob. As of right now we dont have anything programmed so go ahead and select add new. This page will have an area to select how many buttons your keyfob has. For this case we are using the 5834-2 so click the button until you see 2 button. To the left of the key type button you want to click the user box so we can assign a user for these purposes we will select master. Now you are going to want to learn in the key fobs serial number. So select serial number from this page you will be pressing the actual button on the key fob. We like to use button 1 which is located in the top left of your key fob. Just as a heads up we will be pressing the disarm button in the intervals. Go ahead an press the button once the system will beep to acknoledge. The second time you press the disarm button it will produce the loop number and serial number verify that these are both correct and make sure to use your 5834-2 installer guide that comes inside the Honeywell box. Once these have been verified press the button once more time to seal this information into your panel. Go through the menu and make sure you have the key fob programmed the way you would like. If the information is all correct select save and back out to the home screen. Test your key fobs button to ensure proper programming and as you can see ours works so we are all set.

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!

The 5800C2W convert wired to wireless security system by Honeywell Security

The 5800C2W enables retrofitting existing security systems by; converting their wired sensors to Honeywell’s 5800 series wireless technology, and replacing the existing control panel with a LYNX Touch or LYNX Plus series control. The 5800C2W also works with residential VISTA control panels equipped with a wireless RF receiver and keypad. It saves on installation costs, time and materials since there is no need to replace wired devices with individual transmitters. The calibration feature on the 5800C2W solves a frustrating problem, When converting hardwire to wireless zones, the first thing you need to do is find all the resistors. Many times resistors can be in the walls or buried in the window frame. Tried digging those out? Talk about labor! The 5800C2W has a one button calibration. Press it and forget about resistor issues.  It will automatically calibrate the value from 2k to 9k. Now that’s a labor saver!

5800C2W Keep-in-Mind Guidelines:

  • Since the existing control panel is being replaced, its security functions will be performed by the new LYNX or VISTA control panel.
  • The existing control panel can remain for the purpose of housing the backup battery. Further, the existing control panel can be powered down and the transformer unplugged.
  • The 5800C2W module will charge the battery. This is also a good time to replace the existing battery if needed.
  • At the existing control panel, tag and remove the sensor wires as they will now go to the 5800C2W. Up to nine [9] hardwired zones can be handled by each 5800C2W module.
  • DO NOT mount inside the control panel or other metal enclosure.
  • The integral battery cable fuse MUST be positioned inside the control panel enclosure. The fuse is not replaceable.
  • Before mounting permanently, conduct Go/No Go tests (see control’s instructions) to verify adequate signal strength, relocate if necessary.
  • If necessary, affix the SOC label to the inside cover.
