Honeywell L7000 VS Honeywell L5210
The Honeywell L7000 and the Honeywell L5210 are both wireless panels from the LYNX Touch Series. They both offer very similar functions and compatibilities. However, the L7000 is considered to be an upgrade from the L5210. But if you already have an L5210, the panel will work just fine.
The differences between the L7000 and the L5210 are few and far between. However, the most prominent is arguably the touchscreen display. The L7000 screen is 7 inches, while the screen for the L5210 is only 4.3 inches. This can make the L7000 more satisfying to use an navigate. The L7000 also supports a greater number of wireless zones and programmable user codes than the L5210.
It's much easier to find similarities between the two systems. Both support the exact same security sensors and panel add-ons. Basically, if it works for one, then it will work for the other. Most users of these systems will use Honeywell 5800 Series Wireless Sensors with their setup. These sensors are very easy to use and program with both the L7000 and the L5210, and they are recognized for being extremely reliable.
Additionally, both the L7000 and the L5210 will require a few add-ons for the user to get the very most out of their system. Every add-on that works for one will also work on the other. One of the most important add-ons is a communicator. A user can choose an IP communicator (L5100 WIFI) or a cellular communicator, or they can use both for a dual-path setup. Once a communicator has been added, the panel will be able to communicate with both a central monitoring station and the Total Connect service, assuming that the user has the appropriate monitoring plan.
Another great add-on is an L5100 ZWAVE. This will allow the panel to support Z-Wave home automation devices. Again, the user will need an appropriate alarm monitoring plan in order to activate their Z-Wave devices remotely.
