Can I program a Honeywell 5877 on a Honeywell L5100?
The Honeywell 5877 wireless relay can be used with the Honeywell L5100 Lynx Touch to give you control of your garage doors. However, the 5877 is just a wireless relay so you also need something to tell you if the garage door is opened or closed. The 5822T tilt sensor is a great option or you can use 5816 door sensor wired to a 958 overhead sensor to report status of your garage door to your L5100. See step-by-step instructions in the L5100 garage door zone programming guide for programming your tilt sensor. For further assistance please see the FAQ on "How do I add a Honeywell 5822T tilt sensor to the Honeywell L5100?"
Once the tilt sensor is programmed, you will need to learn in your 5877 relay by pressing the Automation icon. Then press Garage Door Setup > Garage Door 1 > Assign Device > Enter Serial Number > Done. Then click the program button on the 5877. Return back to L5100 and select 'Garage Door 1/Opener 1' and click the 'Learn' button. You should hear a click on the relay to confirm that the pairing was successful. For step-by-step directions, use the L5100 garage door control guide. The final step is to test it from the panel. From the home screen follow this sequence: Automation > Garages > select the Garage Door you want > Press to Open icon from the Garage Door Operations page. The Relay should respond and trigger the door to open.
Now that you have local control squared away, want to control your garage door remotely via Total Connect? No problem.
In order to have the ability to control your garage door remotely you will need to install an L5100-zwave module and sign up for Total Connect 2.0 with remote home automation enabled. Please visit our no contract monitoring page to sign up today! Check out the Honeywell 5877GDPK Programming Guide for step-by-step directions. You will see that you have the option of "including" the siren/strobe or not. If you plan to remotely control the garage door using z-wave then you must include the siren/strobe as notification to anyone in the garage to stay clear of the door. When you purchase a 5877 wireless relay from our website you are sent a 5877GDPK. This includes a Fortress SSA-1 siren with an integrated strobe light which provides an audible and visible warning that the garage door opener is being remotely activated.
Here is the installation manual and setup guide which includes installation tips. The guide also explains how to pair the 5877 to a security key fob and how to have the 5877 report system status with the LEDS. Also, please see Honeywell's FAQs for the 5877. You need one 5877 relay for every garage door you would like to control. The 5877 comes with a 12VDC transformer that will power the unit. You can only enroll 5800 series key fobs with a max of 7 total fobs.
