Wireless Alarm Control Panels Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Difference Between 5800 Wireless Technology and Z-Wave?
Honeywell 5800 Series wireless sensors primarily consist of security and life-safety devices, while Z-Wave devices are generally for home automation purposes. Z-Wave devices can be controlled remotely using an interactive platform, such as Total Connect. This is not possible for 5800 Series devices.

How Do I Get My Alarm Company to Change My Installer Code?
Contacting your alarm company is not needed to change the Installer Code on your panel. An end user is able to change their own Installer Code, assuming they know their current Installer Code. However, simply leaving the Installer Code at its default is the best option for the majority of end users.

Why Doesn't My L5210 Do Anything When I Click "Program"?
If clicking on "Program" within the Installer Menu of a Honeywell L5210 does not take you to the next screen, you have been locked out of programming.

Are Old Honeywell Hardwired Contacts Compatible w/ Modern Systems?
It is possible to use old Honeywell hardwired contacts with a newer security panel, such as a LYNX Touch or a Lyric Controller. This can be done with a wireless converter, such as the Honeywell 5800C2W. The security devices will connect to the 5800C2W, which will use a wireless zone with the system.

Can an L5000, L5100, L5200, L5210 or L7000 Work Together?

If a user is looking to add an additional access point for their Lynx Touch panel, they can use a 5828 Keypad. This will give them a secondary location for arming and disarming their panel.
