Honeywell L5200 vs L5210

The LYNX 5200 and LYNX 5210 are functionally the same system. The difference is that the L5210 on revision 8 firmware can use the CDMA-L57 Verizon cell module while the L5200 cant. The L5210 screen is slightly smaller than the l5200. Also, the L5210s housing is more similar to the L7000.

The L5210 was released as a replacement for the L5200 and as such the L5200 is not available for purchase anymore. The L5210 is compatible with Honeywell 5800 wireless devices. The 5800 wireless devices are UL listed security devices that have a 200 foot operating range. The system supports up to 64 wireless security devices simultaneously. There is also additional 16 zones available specifically for adding 4 security key fobs to the unit. The system has room for 32 possible user codes. A duress code and babysitter code can be added also. The duress code sends an immediate panic signal to a central station if one is monitoring the panel. A central station provides police, fire and medical dispatch and are part of a monitoring plan through an alarm company. The babysitter code can arm the system but cannot disarm the system if it wasn’t used to arm the system.

The system can be upgraded to communicate over Ethernet, WIFI or cellular. The unit has built in terminals for a phone connection. For Ethernet, you will need to install the ILP5 Ethernet Communicator. For WIFI, you will need a L5100-WIFI module. For cellular, you’ll need to use a 3GL Cellular Communicator. The unit cannot have both the ILP5 and 3GL or the ILP5 and L5100-WIFI installed at the same time. With the Cellular communicator installed with another module the system will automatically switch to Cellular if the other communication path fails. The L5210 is only all in one wireless panel still in production from Honeywell that has an onboard phone connection.

The system can also have the L5100-ZWAVE module installed. Home automation Z-Wave devices can be mapped to the system, interacted with through the system and even programmed into scenes and rules. The system supports up to 4 Z-Wave door locks, 40 light and switches and 3 Z-Wave thermostats.
