How Do I Add Z-Wave Compatibility To a Honeywell L7000?
In order to make this unit Z-Wave compatible, an user will need to add the L5100-ZWAVE as demonstrated in the following video.
While this video shows the addition of the L5100-ZWAVE to the L5200, the process and placement of the module is the same for the L7000. Release the front of the case from the back by depressing both tabs at the top of the unit with the blade of a flat screwdriver. The system will beep signaling a cover tamper. To stop the beeping press the home icon.
Power down the L7000 by unplugging the the power cables (a process made much easier if the LT-cable was used in the initial installation) and disconnecting the battery. There is a receptacle on the L5100-ZWAVE at the bottom right. Install the L5100 Z-Wave module on the board making sure the receptacle is secure on the controls edge connector.
The L5100-ZWAVE's edge connector is located on the left bottom side of the board. Make sure to install it on the LEFT side for Z-Wave as is demonstrated in the video. There is a matching black connector on the right side, but that is for WiFi. After installing the module, reconnect the battery and plug the power back in. Let the system power cycle back up.
Once completed, the Honeywell Lynx Touch L7000 will have capability of controlling multiple Z-Wave devices.
