How to use a smartphone with a L5000 w/ no monitoring?
The service that allows you to control a LYNX Touch L5000 security system through a smartphone is called Total Connect 2.0. Unfortunately, there is no way to access this service without an active AlarmNet account using an ILP5 internet alarm monitoring communicator or a GSMVLP5 cellular alarm communicator with the LYNX Touch. Total Connect 2.0 service and the free application (app) for an iPhone, Blackberry or Android is provided through Honeywell’s AlarmNet communications division and you must have an active account with an AlarmNet dealer in order to access these features. The Total Connect 2.0 app allow you to arm and disarm the system remotely, view the system status, and even utilize a full remote alarm keypad right on your phone to perform any system function that you want. The service also provides text and email notifications for any system events such as an alarm or an arming or disarming of the security system, if you desire them. All of these services do require a regular service fee to an AlarmNet dealer to cover the internet or cellular alarm signaling from the LYNX Touch as well as the Total Connect interactive features.
