How do I Program Z-Wave Devices to an L5100?
The Honeywell Lynx Touch L5100 control panel is capable of providing users with home automation, once the panel is paired with a L5100-ZWAVE module. Once the module is installed, users can include Z-Wave devices. Before including any Z-Wave device, users should first exclude the device.
- To exclude a Z-Wave device, press the Home Automation icon on the home screen > Tools > Exclude Devices > Press the function button on the device > screen will confirm “unknown device" excluded or "device name" excluded. Once completed, press the back arrow icon until the home screen is reached.
- Once excluded successfully, you can include a zwave device by pressing the Home Automation icon on the home screen > Tools > Include Devices > When prompted, Press the function button on the device > "device found, please wait" will appear on your screen > device successfully added > press the Back arrow until the home screen appears..
- To custom name the Z-Wave device, press the Home Automation icon on the home screen > press the icon for the device type that was just added; Example: Switches, Thermostat, etc.. Select the device that was just included > Edit > Clear > Type in up to 14 characters to name the device > Press Done > press the Back arrow icon until the home screen appears.
The Honeywell Lynx Touch L5100 supports a total of 40 zwave lights, switches, lamp module devices, etc., in any combination. In addition, up to 3 Zwave thermostats and up to 4 door locks can be included. Users can program up to 20 scenes locally, and up to an additional 20 scenes via Total Connect 2.0, including schedules and rules for a single device or group of devices.
A scene assigns one or more Z-Wave devices together, and tells the panel what state to put the devices into. For instance, you might assign a light and a thermostat to a scene, turning the light either on or off, and setting the thermostat to a particular setting. For instance turn off the light and lower the temperature on a Z-Wave thermostat while you sleep. Users might label this scene as “Bed Time”.
A rule tells the scene when to trigger based on events such as system operation like arm away, arm stay, or end of exit delay, a fault or restore on a zone, etc.
