WAP-PLUS Wireless Access Point – Quick Installation Guide
For Online Support visit:

General information
This guide provides information on installing and setting up Honeywell's WAP-PLUS Wireless Access Point. Out of the box, the WAP-PLUS functions as a wireless access point to support most Honeywell iPCAM installations. However to support the iPCAM installations for use with the LYNX Touch (L5100 series) control, the WAP-PLUS must be configured as described in this document. The WAP-PLUS provides an easy-to-setup secure wireless solution that enables Honeywell's iPCAM series internet video cameras to communicate with AlarmNet. Some major features of Honeywell's WAP-PLUS are: ! The WAP-PLUS utilizes the 802.11b/g/n protocol with WPA2-PSK wireless security. ! The WAP-PLUS supports WPS security. WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a standard for easy setup of a secure wireless network. In addition there are three 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports available for wired cameras. IMPORTANT: This device is for indoor use only. The WAP-PLUS must be spaced 5 to 10 feet from other wireless devices. For detailed information on wired and wireless operating distances, refer to the camera’s installation guide.

Security: On – Wi-Fi security is set to on. Flashing – Flashes when WPS button has been pressed for 3 seconds and released, to indicate the WAP-PLUS is transmitting a new security key to the wireless camera. When the wireless camera replies, the Security LED lights solid. WPS (button): Used to setup a secured wireless connection. (Refer to the documentation for the wireless camera.) Wireless: On – Wireless connection exist. Off – No Wireless connections exist.

LAN: On – The LAN port(s) is active. Power: When power is applied the LED blinks during an initialization period, then remains steady to indicate power is connected. Reset (switch): This switch has two functions; Reboot, and Clear All Data. Use a paper clip to depress. Reboot – Depress and Release to reboot. (Allow cycle to complete.) Clear All Data – Depress and hold for 10 seconds to clear all data, and restore factory settings. (Allow cycle to complete.)

12V / 1A: Connect Power Transformer. WAN: Not Used. (Do not remove the cap plug.) Ports 1, 2, 3, 4: For connection to Ethernet devices. Antenna Ports: Connect the supplied antennas to these ports.

Configuring the WAP-PLUS for use with LYNX Touch, L5100 series
To support the LYNX Touch (L5100 series), the WAP-PLUS must be configured as described here. IMPORTANT: If you press the WPS button without first configuring the WAP-PLUS, and you successfully enroll at least one IP device; then you will not be able to access the admin/password credentials to configure the WAP-PLUS. The WAP-PLUS will work in a “locked out” mode. In this mode, the wireless security level will set to WPA2-PSK with a randomly generated WPA key. You can restore the WAP-PLUS to the factory defaults by performing a reset. Use the Reset button to clear all data. The best practice is for the dealer to configure the WAP-PLUS prior to installation at the customer’s premises. You will perform the following: ! Determine the IP address and access the configuration page. ! Set the SSID name and Security level. ! Set the User Name and Password for the WAP-PLUS. Configuring the WAP-PLUS: Depending on what version of Windows you are using, screen appearance will vary and certain buttons may have somewhat different labels for the same function. 1. Disconnect the PC from the internet or LAN. At the PC, select the My Network Places icon, right click, and select Properties. 2. Select the Local Area Connection icon, right click, and select Properties. 3. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP or TCP/IPv4) and click Properties. 7. Verify the WAP-PLUS is ready to communicate by performing a “ping” test. From the Window’s Task Bar navigate, Start > Run, and enter cmd, then click OK. 8. A command window opens. Enter ping –t and hit [Enter]. The command box displays the ping results.


When you get at least 3 replies from the WAP-PLUS ( halt the pinging with a [Ctrl] + [C] keyboard command, then close the command box.

10. At the PC, open the browser and enter into the address field. Then click refresh.

11. The WAP-PLUS log in screen appears.

4. Select Use the following IP address and enter

5. Click in the Subnet mask field, and it will populate with Click OK. Then close all the network windows and connect the PC to the WAP-PLUS as follows:

12. Enter the default User name (admin) and password (password), then click OK. NOTE: Do not change any settings other than the ones below. 13. The Wireless AP screen appears.






DO NOT connect any other ports.

PC Used to access the WAP-PLUS configuration page.

14. Proceed.

6. Power up the WAP-PLUS and ensure it is set to factory defaults by depressing the RESET button (use a bent paper clip) for 10 seconds then release. Allow the WAP-PLUS to reboot as indicated by the LEDs going off then back on. This may take some time.

15. In the left pane, select Wireless. (Completed screen shown below.)

19. The Wireless screen returns. 20. In the left pane select Password. If a security log in screen appears. Enter the default User name (admin) and password (password), then click OK. 21. The Password screen appears.

22. Change the default password and click Save. 23. In the left pane click Log Out, then OK for the confirmation message. NOTE: You can repeat this procedure for the next WAP-PLUS, or return your PC to a network DHCP state and reconnect it to the internet or LAN.

16. In the Region drop-down field, select a region. Then give the SSID1 a meaningful name. 17. Click Configure SSID1. The Wireless Security screen appears.

18. From the Security System drop-down field, select WPA2-PSK. Create a PSK key (pre-shared key) that is greater than 8 characters. Click Save, then Close.

Using the WAP-PLUS as a wireless access point
For specific setup and configuration instructions for your wireless camera, refer to the camera's installation guide. 1. If using wireless connectivity, attach the two antennas to the WAP-PLUS. Orient each antenna vertically and tighten the knurled connectors. 2. Connect the Power Transformer wire to the 12V / 1A connector on the WAPPLUS back. Plug the Power Transformer into an outlet. NOTE: The Power Transformer must be powered by a non-switchable power outlet. IMPORTANT: ! When setting up a wireless configuration in very large buildings or buildings with dense walls, wireless communications may be marginal. It is best to first configure the system in the same room. Then upon successful configuration, place each wireless camera in the desired location. ! If using more than one wireless camera, each must be configured for wireless security. ! If using a router instead of Honeywell's WAP-PLUS, please ensure your router is configured for DHCP. (This is the default setting for most routers.) If you are unsure, you can access the router's configuration page and set it for DHCP if necessary (refer to the router's manual). Since the operation of each router varies, please refer to the router's manufacturer for support. ! Test the system to ensure all cameras exhibit good communications. Typical configuration using a mix of wired and wireless cameras:
