Can I add wireless motion detector to Honeywell system?
With the Honeywell L5100 LYNX Touch, you enroll a wireless motion detector by entering the 'Zones' programming menu within the installer programming menu. First you select the zone number you will be assigning to the wireless motion detector. Next, you have to enroll the device's serial number. You can enroll the serial number using the RF learning mode by activating the motion detector (waving your hand in front of the device) three times or you can manually enter the (7) digit serial number which will be displayed on a sticker on your wireless motion detector. You should set the loop number to 1 and enter zone descriptors if you would like the system to describe the area the motion detector will be installed. In the device type programing section, you should add it as a 'Motion Sensor'. The next programming menu will be 'Response Type' and for a motion detector you should use either 'Interior Follower' or 'Interior with Delay'. If you set your motion detector to 'Interior Follower', it will go off right away if no other sensor was tripped first or if a sensor programmed as 'Perimeter' was tripped first. If a delay zone was tripped first, the motion detector will "follow" that zone and activate only after the entry delay time runs out. If you set your motion detector to 'Interior with Delay', your motion detector will always wait for the entry delay to run out before activating an alarm. Next, you will have to choose whether or not you want your wireless motion detector zone to report alarm signals to Alarm Grid's central station. Finally, you should confirm that the motion detector is set with supervision so that your LYNX Touch panel will alert you if the device ever loses its wireless connection to the wireless receiver.
If you have a Honeywell security system like the VISTA-20P or the L3000 LYNX Plus, you will enroll the wireless motion detector using the *56 zone programming menus. You will need an alphanumeric alarm keypad like the Honeywell 6160 to access the *56 zone programming menus with the VISTA-20P. Within the *56 zone programming options you need to assign a zone number to the wireless motion detector. You should also choose whether you want your motion detector to be 'Interior Follower' or 'Interior with Delay'. Then you will need to enter a report code for monitoring, choose that the device has an input type of RF (supervised RF) and enroll the serial number of the motion detector. You should use loop number 1 for most every wireless motion detector and, if you would like, you can enter custom zone descriptors.
