How do I Program a Honeywell 5877 to My L5210?

The Honeywell 5877 is a wireless garage door relay designed to open and close an overhead door from a compatible Honeywell alarm system. The relay is sold in a kit called the 5877GDPK which also includes the SSA-1 Z-Wave siren/strobe. You can elect to include this device for audiovisual alerts or not when pairing the relay. Integrating the siren will require the L5100-ZWAVE controller which is purchased separately. This module is not needed unless you plan on using the siren/strobe or have other Z-Wave devices you would like enrolled into the system.

The 5877 requires a local patch wire to the garage motor control inputs. The best way to locate the proper connections is to match the wiring being run to the existing wall switch that controls the overhead door. Simply land the connections on top of these on the motor. Then connect one wire to the common (labeled as "COM") and the other to the normally open aka "NO." There is no polarity. If you find this is not working some motors may be normally closed so just move it to "NC." After you have the relay wired to the motor you can power it up by connecting the included transformer to the DC port on the relay. Now it is time to pair the 5877 to the Honeywell L5210 Lynx Touch alarm system.

Under Automation on the home page of the L5210, press the down followed "garage door setup." Choose a garage door and press "assign device." Next we will manually enter the serial number from the 5877 to pair it to the panel. Press "enter serial number" and type in the 7 digit serial number listed on the back of the 5877 relay. Unfortunately there is no way to auto-enroll this. After the serial number is added press done and click the "learn" button. This will test the relay and should result in a clicking noise from the relay. It may take 5 to 10 seconds after the button press for the relay to trip. Be patient. After testing the relay you can include the Z-Wave siren/strobe. Then back out to the home screen.

Enter automation again except this time go to "Garages" on the first page. Click the garage door you programmed and press the garage door icon to operate the relay. This should now open and close the garage door. If the garage door is physically opening and closing but the icon on the screen is not updating you will need to configure a garage door sensor. The 5877 is just a dumb relay that toggles the garage motor. The 5822T garage tilt sensor is a wireless device that informs the L5210 when the door is open or closed.

The L5210 has 3 specified garage door zones (zones 46-48) labeled as "main" in zone programming. Zone 46 will report status to "Garage Door 1" in the Automation section. In other words, after you program a sensor like the 5822T or 5816 to zone 46 the garage door icon for garage door 1 will mirror live status. Same goes for zone 47 with Garage Door 2 and zone 48 for Garage Door 3. Without programming a sensor to these zones the 5877 is simply a blind toggling relay. We highly recommend installing a sensor on the door for this reason. Set the device type to Garage Door and response type to Garage. The door will mirror entry/exit 2 settings and allow for venting which means you can arm when the door is open. Then it becomes arms after it is shut. If you do not wish to have the door monitored or report to a central station due to worries about false alarms or enter/exit delay periods just configure the response type to Garage Monitor. A garage monitor zone simply shows the status to the panel and will not affect the alarm status at all.

If you want remote access to control your garage door via the Total Connect app it requires remote automation services. Ask your dealer to add automation services if you do not have it already. We include automation with our silver level monitoring plans or higher.

* If you plan on linking the siren/strobe you can press the include button in the garage door setup window on the L7000. Then press the ID function on the siren/strobe device. This will require the L5100-ZWAVE controller. Without it the include and exclude icons will not even show up.

You could either use the MyQ app to control the door separate from the alarm system or you could change out the door controller to a non-MyQ controller to use the 5877 for system/garage door integration.
It is a MyQ. Do ai have any other options?
Well I'm not sure of compatibility with that specific controller. Do you know if it's MyQ compatible because if it is, it won't work with the 5877?
The garage door opener model is WD832KEV and the alarm system is the Lynx 5210.
The 5877 does not work with Chamberlain MyQ door controllers. The programming guide ( ) states that it doesn't work with models 8550, 8360 and 8500 and that other Chamberlain MyQ doors may not work as well. What alarm system do you have?
Does the 5877 relay not work with some types of garage motors? I have a Chamberlain belt drive and when i wire the NO and COM wires it does not open my garage door. When connecting a voltage meter, the motor maintains constant power so the relay does not complete the circuit.
