How do I get in to program an L5200 if I'm Locked out?
Keyed in your installer code and the program button is not responding? That means you are locked out programming. If you are putting in your installer code and not seeing the program button show up at all then you are not using the correct code. The default installer code is 4112. Wether you are locked out or forgot your installer code here is how we will get you back into programming.
First, Reboot the Honeywell L5200 LYNX Touch alarm system.
There are two ways to do this:
1. From the home screen enter the following sequence: Security + More + Tools + Enter Master Code (default is 1234) + Test + Reboot.
2. You can open the panel and remove battery and ac power. If you are not using the LT cable then you should unplug power at the wall not at the panel to avoid possible electrocution.
Press and hold the Home button beneath the touch screen as soon as you see the white screen during reboot.
When is the system is rebooting you will see scrolling Linux text then there will be a white screen. During the white screen press and hold the Home button beneath the touchscreen.
Release the Home button (House icon) when you see ‘Ready to Arm’ on a green bar across the screen.
Press and release ‘Security’ on the touchscreen.
Press and release ‘Arm Stay’ on the touchscreen.
A number pad will pop up. Enter ‘Clear’ followed by ‘00’.
Then press the program button and enter back into programming.
Once you are back in programming first confirm the installer code.
** The reason why you got locked out of programming is because "No" was selected when prompted to "Allow installer back into programming?" This question is asked EVERY time you exit programming. You will need to always say "Yes." **
