Honeywell Lyric Security System VS L7000 VS L5210

Three of the best wireless systems from Honeywell are the Lyric Controller, the L7000 and the L5210. The Lyric is Honeywell's newest and most advanced system available today. The L7000 and L5210 are from Honeywell's older LYNX Touch Series. They are not quite as advanced as the Lyric.

The Lyric Controller offers all of the bells and whistles one would expect out of a new security system. It can connect to a WIFI network right out of the box, and it can use cellular communication with a simple add-on. The Lyric features a modern design and a beautiful full-color 7-inch touchscreen display. It is the recommended choice for anyone who wants a new Honeywell System.

The L7000 and L5210 are both from the Honeywell LYNX Touch Series of systems. They are actually very similar panels, with the L7000 being only slightly more robust. The biggest difference is that the L7000 features a 7-inch touchscreen, while the L5210 only has a 4.3-inch touchscreen. The L7000 also allows for a greater number of wireless zones and programmable user codes than the L5210.

The real difference is when you compare the Lyric Controller to the LYNX Touch Systems. The Lyric Controller comes both WIFI and Z-Wave ready. The L7000 and L5210 will require both a WIFI add-on (L5100 WIFI) and a Z-Wave add-on (L5100 ZWAVE) in order to do this. The Lyric is also the only panel of the three that can use encrypted sensors (Honeywell SiX Series). Another win for the Lyric is that it supports more wireless zones and programmable user codes than the LYNX Touch Panels. However, all three panels can interface with the popular Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors.

In short, if you are looking for a new Honeywell Panel, then we recommend choosing a Lyric Controller. But if you already have an L7000 or L5210, then you don't necessarily need to make an upgrade. Both the LYNX Touch Panels can do almost everything the Lyric Controller can, though some small add-ons will be needed. All three systems can certainly be used in an excellent security setup.
