Can I program Yale Z-wave deadbolt locks to LYNX Touch?
First, you will need to program the user codes in the Yale Real Living Z-wave deadbolt door lock. Then you will need to enroll the Z-wave door lock to the Honeywell LYNX Touch alarm system. After you have successfully completed these steps you can go into Automation on your LYNX Touch alarm system.
Press the down key followed by 'Tools.' Then enter 'Advanced Tools.' When prompted enter your master code or installer code. Then click on 'Locking Door.' The 'Z-wave locking door' setting will execute the chosen alarm state (i.e. arm away or arm stay). ANYTIME the Yale Real Living Z-wave deadbolt is locked the alarm system will follow this setting. For example, if you chose arm away then the panel will auto arm away any time the door is locked. Honeywell's logic behind this is based on the fact that most Z-Wave door locks utilize a single button press for locking the door. In other words, this is a global setting that does not currently support user specific arming from a door lock. Next, lets discuss how to setup disarming from the door lock.
First, we will enter the master programming menu by entering the following sequence: Security + More (bottom right) + Tools + Enter Master Code. Now click the 'Users' icon. Then select which individual user code(s) you would like to have the ability to auto disarm when used to unlock the Z-wave door lock.
Simply highlight the desired user codes then click 'Edit.' Set 'Zwave Lock Control' to 'Yes.' Then set 'Zwave Unlocking Door' to 'Disarm.' Make sure to save each time you make a change to each user. Exit out of programming and start testing!
