If clicking on "Program" within the Installer Menu of a Honeywell L5210 does not take you to the next screen, you have been locked out of programming. This is because you selected "No" when asked if you wanted to allow the installer to reenter programming. You must use the backdoor method to get in.

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.
