How do I get power to the L5100?
Hooking up power to the Honeywell L5100 out of the box isn't the easiest solution and that's why we always recommend using a Honeywell LT Cable.
If you're looking to brave installing without an LT Cable, get your wire strippers ready, because you're going to have to run two wires yourself.
The Honeywell LYNX 5100 will ship with a transformer to plug into the wall, but no wires.
We recommend using a 22 gauge (or preferably 18 AWG), stranded 2 conductor wire.
You will need to connect the positive (red) from the +9 VDC inside the panel to the positive on the transformer and the negative (black) from the GND terminal inside the panel to the negative on the transformer.
Connecting to the terminals using this method will require stripping the insulation around the wire and making sure you have a good connection from the wire to the screw terminal.
If you're going with the Alarm Grid preferred method of installation and using a LT Cable, we have a great installation video for you:
The LT Cable ships with an easy plug on one side that directly plugs into the back of the L5100 and the other end has two spade connectors that make plugging into the Honeywell 300-04705 transformer a breeze.
