How do I enroll a Honeywell 5816 on a Honeywell L3000?

If you need to add a Honeywell 5816 wireless door or window sensor to a Honeywell L3000 LYNX Plus wireless security system there are (2) recommended options. The first option is the easiest and requires less manual entries. You can use the built-in voice prompt programming feature of the LYNX Plus security system to have the wireless alarm control panel walk you through enrolling the wireless door or window sensor. To enter the voice prompt programming mode you need to enter your (4) digit installer code followed by '888'. The LYNX Plus LCD screen will display 'Pro' and the security system will announce "Programming, use arrows to scroll choices. Press select to accept, press escape to quit." You will need to physically activate the device by putting the magnet next to the 5816 wireless transmitter and then removing the magnet during the enrollment process. The second option is to enter the normal installer menu mode and access the *56 enhanced zone programming mode. You will need to navigate through all of the zone programming menu options. You should program the 5816 wireless door or window zone with a 'Perimeter' zone type if it will be used on a window or a door that will never be accessed while the LYNX Plus security system is armed. You should program it with a 'Entry/Exit #1' zone type if the 5816 will be used on a door that will be accessed while the L3000 is armed (front door or garage door). Any report code other than '00' will set it so that all alarm signals triggered by the wireless door or window sensor will be sent to Alarm Grid's central station. The input type should be set as RF (supervised RF) so that you will be alerted to anytime the 5816 is not being seen by the LYNX Plus wireless receiver. You should set the loop number to 2 if you are using the 5816 wireless door or window sensor with the magnet. If you are wiring a normally closed contact loop to the terminals inside the 5816, you should set that zone with a loop number 1. (You can also set up (2) separate zones if you will be using the internal reed switch with the magnet and also wiring a normally closed contact loop to the 5816 wireless sensor.)
