How Can I Get My L5200 System Monitored By A Service?
Establishing the type of communication between the Honeywell’s Lynx Touch L5200 alarm system and a monitoring company is the first step to be taken. Honeywell’s Lynx Touch L5200 control panel provides several options for communication. A land line, a cell communicator, internet and wifi communicators plus dual communication.
Connecting the Lynx Touch L5200 to a phone line, the phone line would need to be connected on the far left two terminals on the upper left connection block in the control panel. Connecting the Lynx Touch L5200 to a phone line a user can be monitored by a monitoring company but will not be able to utilize Total Connect 2.0.
Honeywell’s ILP5 and L5100Wifi module are both compatible internet communicators for the Lynx Touch L5200 control panel.
Dual communication can be set by combining a cell communicator and land line. The first path of communication would be the landline and if signals cannot be sent the cell communicator will send them. The L5100Wifi module and a cell communicator can be combined with the wifi signal being the first path of communication with the cell communicator being the backup. A cell communicator and the ILP5 internet communicator cannot be combined as they use the same port.
Once the communication has been determined, a user can select a monitoring company. Honeywell’s Lynx Touch L5200 is compatible with Honeywell’s Total Connect 2.0 when either a cell or internet connection. Total Connect 2.0 allows users to control an alarm system remotely from any computer, smartphone or ios device. The user will receive notifications on any alarm event via email and or text message. A user can also control home automation, such as lights, door locks, thermostats, water valves and window shades connected to Total Connect 2.0 and installing a L5100ZWAVE module to the Lynx Touch L5200.
