What Happens To an L7000 When Internet Goes Down?
A lot of people choose the internet for communication for an alarm system. Most of the time this is a very reliable means of communication. However, if the occasion arises and the internet goes down, the alarm panel will also lose communication. This means, no alarm signals will be sent to a monitoring station an no alerts to a cell phone via email or text messages in the event of any alarm events taking place. During the time the internet is down, the Lynx L7000 touch screen will display a message “103 Comm Trouble”. This normally will correct itself once the internet comes back up. If the trouble message still appears after the internet is working, arm the system then disarm the system to remove the message.
Losing internet connection and losing the ability to having a communicating system, is concerning for most. To relieve this concern a cell communicator, the GSMVLP5-4G which is compatible with the Lynx Touch L7000, can be installed as a back up. Installing a cell communicator will provide dual communication.
The first path of communication would be the internet, if a signal did not go through the cell communicator would send the signal. The GSMVLP5-4G cell communicator works off AT&T cell towers providing a second way of communicating.
The Lynx Touch L7000 is one of Honeywell’s most innovative alarm panels. It’s large color 7 (seven) inch touch screen with graphic icons makes it very user friendly. Provide the ability to communicate by Wifi, Cell Communicators and ZWAVE capabilities.
