Frequently Asked Questions

Can an L5000, L5100, L5200, L5210 or L7000 Work Together?
All of the Honeywell Lynx Touch panels are independent systems that are not designed to work with one another. If a user is looking to add an additional access point for their Lynx Touch panel, they can use a 5828 Keypad. This will give them a secondary location for arming and disarming their panel.

How does a Honeywell 5800PIR Work?
By using passive infrared (PIR) technology, the 5800PIR is able to detect the presence of intruders. The device is activated whenever a change in infrared energy is detected, signaling that an intruder is present. The pulse count of the 5800PIR can also be changed in order to adjust its sensitivity.

What is the Difference Between an Installer Code & User Code on a Lyric Security System?
A user code on a Lyric security system is used for arming and disarming the panel, while the installer code is used for gaining access to system programming. The installer code can also be used to arm the panel. However, the installer code can only disarm the panel if it was the code used to arm it.
