What are Response Types for a Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 or L7000?

Response Types for a Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 or L7000 determine how the alarm system responds when a sensor is faulted. Each system zone is assigned a Response Type as part of its basic programming settings. Some Response Types will only be made available with certain Device Types.




You will see a programming field for Response Type when adding or editing a system zone. To access Zone Programming, start from the main screen of the LYNX Touch System. Choose Security > More > Tools > Installer Code (default 4112) > Program > Zones. From there, you should find the zone you want to work with. Click on the zone to highlight it, and then choose "Edit" in the bottom-left. You will then see a field called Response Type.


Please note that not all Response Types will be readily available from this menu. Certain Response Types will only be available with certain Device Types. If you are unable to find the Response Type you want, you may need to change the Device Type first.

The table below lists all of the available Response Types:
