How Do I wire the trigger on the Lynx Touch L5200?

The Honeywell L5200 LYNX Touch is a wireless alarm system with a built-in 95dB siren. Similar to its predecessor the LYNX Touch L5100, the L5200 does not have a bell output for wired external sounders. In most cases, this is not an issue because the panel supports the wireless Honeywell 5800WAVE external (indoor) siren.

However if you are looking for an outdoor siren or a higher output wired siren you can use a wired or wireless relay. Although the wireless option is generally easier, hardwiring is more affordable and in some cases hardwiring is simply preferred.

You can use a Honeywell 5800RL which uses RF to wirelessly trigger the relay or you can hardwire a . If you are interested in going wireless check out our FAQ: How do I add an external sounder to my LYNX touch?

Lets talk more about the wired trigger now. You will find inside the panel there are screw terminals where you can land a single wired security zone and a wired trigger output. The trigger output will need to be connected to a wired relay such as the Altronix RBSNTTL ultra sensitive relay. There is a 2 wire connection from the panel to the relay. The positive (red wire) will land on the 'TRIG' terminal on the panel and the the ‘TRG -’ terminal on the RBSNTTL relay. Next, wire the L5100 ‘GND’ terminal (black wire) beside 'HWZ' to the ‘NEG -’ terminal on the relay. You will need a jumper wire between the ‘TRG +’ terminal and the ‘POS +’ terminal on the RBSNTTL. Check out the LYNX External Sounder Install and Setup Guide for further details on connecting the sire and the power supply.

We offer a LYNX-WEXT kit which includes all the necessary parts to hardwire an external sounder. This includes the Honeywell AD12612 power supply, Honeywell 1361 AC transformer, Ultratech 1240 4.5Ah battery backup, and the Meir BW98B metal cabinet that houses all of these components. You will still need to choose an alarm siren with a built-in driver. The AD12612 has a max output of 1.2A so be sure to stay under this amperage with the total draw of all wired sirens. If you need more power you can swap in the Altronix SMP3 2.5A power supply. Unfortunately you will need to get all the units from the kit a la carte if you go this route.

I bought the whole kit, so it does come with the RBSNTTL, case, battery, etc... I guess i was just over thinking it.... Thanks
not that it can handle the voltage the trigger just supplies a a 3ma trigger to ground. if you ever need to use a 12v power supply. You would need a low voltage triger such as the RBSNTTL relay
Would you happen to know how much current the L5210 Trigger output can handle(Sink)? The specs say 1K ohm 3mA, but if your hooking up 12V to it, such as when you apply the 12V supply of the AD12612 to the TRIG +, wouldn't that be 12mA?
Just installed the kit and it works perfectly! Thanks for all of the great tutorial videos.. It made installation very easy.
Hey Max, the last paragraph of this FAQ explicitly says that the LYNX-WEXT (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/alarmgrid-lynx-wext ) works with the L5200. The LYNX-EXT (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/alarmgrid-lynx-ext ) does as well.
So the kit I just ordered will not work with my L5200 panel?
