how can I have remote access to my L5100?
If you want remote access to a Honeywell L5100 Lynx Touch alarm control panel, you will need to sign up with a Honeywell AlarmNet dealer for access to the Total Connect 2.0 app. Without Total Connect, the only remote access available with the LYNX Touch would be a wireless keypad or the L5100 Connect app which only allows you to control the system using a wireless device that's on the same network as the system.
Total Connect 2.0 is the only way to have true remote access to your L5100 security system. You will need to have an alarm communicator installed in your LYNX Touch before signing up for Total Connect. You can choose between the L5100-WIFI communicator or the GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator or you can run both units in tandem. If you wanted a hardwired internet communicator, the ILP5 is also an option. Keep in mind that the ILP5 uses the same port as the GSMVLP5-4G so you won't be able to run hard wired internet and use the cellular backup.
