Can I Use Two L7000 Alarm Panels Together?
No, you cannot use two L7000 Alarm Panels together. If you had two separate L7000 Panels, then they would be considered separate alarm systems. There would be no way to link the two together. If you want a second on-site controller for your L7000 System, you can use a 5828 Keypad.
There is an important rule that you should remember for any security system. There is only one control panel per security system. You will not have more than one panel for a single security system. The Resideo L7000 is a control panel. As a result, you will only have one L7000 unit per system. You also cannot use an L7000 with a separate alarm system, such as an L5210 or a Resideo Lyric Controller. Again, there can only be one panel per system. However, you can have multiple keypads on the same system.
Many people confuse keypads for alarm control panels. However, a keypad is merely a controller for an alarm system. It is not an actual alarm system. On the other hand, an alarm control panel is the centerpiece of the security system. It is the "brains" of the system, and all programmed sensors report to that panel. Many wireless alarm control panels like the L7000 have a built-in keypad for controlling the system. That is why wireless systems are often called "wireless all-in-one panels". This is also why many people confuse wireless alarm control panels with keypads.
The most common reason why a person would ask if they can use an L7000 Panel with another L7000 Panel is because they want a second on-site device for controlling their security system. The thing is, you cannot use an L7000 as a keypad for another L7000 System. That being said, there is a compatible keypad available for an L7000. That device is called the Honeywell 5828 Keypad. This is an alarm system keypad designed with LYNX Touch Systems in mind. If you want to learn how to pair a 5828 Keypad with your L7000 System, please check this FAQ.
