How Do I Program a Honeywell L7000 Alarm System?
You can program a Honeywell L7000 Alarm System by accessing Zone Programming and then choosing an available zone. You must configure all the zone settings. This includes providing the sensor's Serial Number, which can usually be learned-in automatically. Save your changes when finished.
Complete the following steps to program a Honeywell L7000 Alarm System.
1. Enter Zone Programming. Start from the main screen of the L7000. Choose Security > More > Tools > Installer Code (default 4112) > Program > Zones. You are now in Zone Programming.
2. Choose a zone. You must select an available system zone to enroll the sensor. The easiest option is to just choose Add New at the bottom to have the system automatically select the next available zone. You can also scroll through the list of available zones, and click on one to highlight it. Then press the Edit button at the bottom to select that zone.
3. Enroll the sensor. Choose the Serial Number field in the upper-left. Then activate the sensor three times to auto-enroll. The panel will confirm each individual activation by beeping. You can activate the sensor by faulting it, by removing the tamper cover, or by pressing a test button. This will depending on the sensor you are using. You should see the manual for the device for more information. After the third activation, the panel should beep three times and you will be taken back to the previous screen. The Serial Number will be shown in the appropriate field.
Alternatively, you can manually enter the Serial Number for the sensor into the field. This is usually not recommended, since you may make a mistake when entering. Manually entering also does not confirm that the sensor is communicating with the panel properly. That is why you will want to auto-enroll the sensor in most cases.
4. Configure the settings. Go through and configure the zone settings. The remaining settings are as follows:
- Loop Number: Determines how the sensor communicates with the panel. Options 1 thru 4 are available. Check the sensor's installation manual for the proper Loop Number to use.Alternatively, you can check this helpful guide for a list of Loop Numbers used with sensors commonly used with an L7000.
- Zone Descriptors: These are used to name and identify the zone. The L7000 System will speak out the Zone Descriptors, along with the Device Type, whenever the sensor is faulted. Choose Zone Descriptors that make it easy for you to identify the sensor.
- Device Type: Identifies the type of sensor that is being used. Set accordingly.
- Response Type: Determines how the panel responds when the sensor is faulted. A list of Response Types is available here.
- Alarm Report: Determines whether or not the central station will be notified if an alarm is caused by this zone. You will want this set to Yes for most burglary and life-safety zones.
- Chime: Determines the Chime type the panel will produce when the sensor is faulted. You can also set it to Disabled to turn off the Chime for this Zone.
- Supervision: Determines whether or not the panel will periodically check to make sure the sensor is communicating properly. You will usually want to enable supervision, unless the sensor will occasionally leave the property (e.g. a key fob or a wearable medical alert device).
5. Save your changes. Press the Save button in the lower-right corner to save your changes after you have made all the necessary configurations. Then repeatedly press the return arrow in the upper-right corner until you return to main menu. Choose Yes when asked if you want to allow the installer to re-enter programming.
