How Do I Disable a Honeywell L7000?

You can disable a Honeywell L7000 by disconnecting the backup battery and unplugging the AC transformer to power it off. The touchscreen display will go blank to confirm that the system has completely powered down. All system functions will be disabled until the panel is powered back on.

It's possible to go through the settings for an L7000 and disable various functions and features individually. For example, you can disable the communication path to prevent the panel from sending out signals. You could also disable to sounder to prevent any sirens and chimes. You can even bypass sensors to disable certain zones. But if you want to truly disable the entire system, the easiest option is to just power down the panel.

When the L7000 is powered down, it really can't do anything at all. It can't send alerts to a central station or to AlarmNet360. It will not activate a siren during a burglary or fire. It will not chime when a zone is faulted. This will continue until the system is powered back on. By restoring power to the L7000, the system will once again operate like normal.

End users should realize that powering off their L7000 System to disable it does not cancel their monitoring service. The system will remain registered with AlarmNet, and the user will continue to be charged for monitoring. The end user is basically throwing their money away if they retain active monitoring service while their L5100 System is powered off for an extended period of time. An end user does not receive any benefits when their system is off.

Normally, if an end user wanted to power down their system, they would only do so for a very short period of time. The most common reasons to shut down an alarm system are to make hardware changes and to perform troubleshooting steps. They would then power it back on so that they receive monitoring service like normal. If you want to cancel your monitoring service entirely, it's best to just contact your alarm monitoring provider directly.

You can power down and disable an L7000 by completing the following steps:

1. Disconnect battery power. Press in the two tabs on top of the L7000 and separate the front from the back plate to open up the panel. Then locate that connected backup battery and disconnect it from the panel. You can close the panel when finished.

2. Unplug the transformer. Find the plug-in transformer and disconnect it. The panel should shut down now that it is no longer receiving power.

3. Confirm the shut down. Check the L7000 touchscreen. It should be completely blank to confirm that the system has powered down. The system will be disabled until it is powered back on. If a user wants to re-enable their system and power it back on, they should make sure to reconnect the AC transformer before reconnecting the backup battery.
