How do I pair a LYNX Connect app to a LYNX Touch panel?
The device with the Lynx Connect App installed will automatically enroll to the Lynx system by loading up the program and navigating to the Keypad submenu on the system.
The Lynx Touch all-in-one wireless alarm systems were the first complete touchscreen alarm systems released by Honeywell. Lynx panels communicate over Ethernet (ILP5), WIFI (L5100-WIFI) or Cellular (GSMVLP54G, 3GL or CDMA-L57). Each of these communication methods can be used by themselves, or WIFI can be used in conjunction with Cellular for a Dual Path setup. Lynx panels are compatible with all 5800 series wireless sensors. The only wireless keypad which can be added to the system is the 5828 or 5828V Voice Annunciator Keypad. These keypads are fully functional, but their display is fixed english so they can only display zone numbers with system status. The 5828V can speak status and zone descriptors, if descriptors within its vocabulary are used during zone setup. With the Lynx Connect app, users are able to interact with their system much more fully.
The Lynx Connect app is available for download at the Google Play or Apple iOS store for the small price of $1. The apps graphical user interface mimics the touchscreen on the Lynx panels.
To interact with the panel the device running the Lynx Connect app will need to be on the same IP network as the Lynx panel. This means the Lynx Touch must be equipped with either the L5100-WIFI module or the ILP Ethernet module. Through the app, a user can arm and disarm the system, receive weather temp and time information, if enabled, scan for and rename IPCAMs on the system, and interact with and program scenes and rules for home automation devices. The app is extremely responsive and is a convenient way for users to access their panel with the same touchscreen interface from any supported smart device on the same network.
Here are the steps to connect the device running the app to a Lynx Panel -
At the Lynx press :
Security > More > Tools > Master Code > Keypad
Leave the panel on this menu.
Load up the Lynx Connect app on the desired device.
As long as the smart device is on the same WIFI network as the Lynx Touch, it should automatically enroll as a keypad, and you’ll see its MAC address displayed. The MAC address below has been intentionally obscured
