What is a good L5100 compatible deadbolt lock?
With Z-Wave functionality, the amazing Honeywell LYNX Touch L5100 can provide more than just traditional security. By adding Z-Wave home automation devices, the L5100 turns your home into a smart home. One of the most popular home automation devices, is a door lock. The Yale YRD210 push button and the YRD220 touchscreen locks are the perfect addition to your Honeywell wireless security system. Both Yale Z-Wave locks are deadbolt locks and by simply replacing your existing deadbolt with one of the Yale locks, you can easily add Z-Wave lock control to your LYNX L5100 system.
You will need to add the L5100-ZWAVE module to your LYNX L5100 system before you can add any Z-Wave device. Once you have upgraded your panel with the Z-Wave controller, you can add up to four Z-Wave locks.
With the Yale deadbolt locks, you can actually program your L5100 user codes to sync down to the lock so that the code you use to arm and disarm your system will be the same code you use to lock and unlock the Z-Wave deadbolt. Also, you can program the L5100 control panel so that when you lock the deadbolt, it automatically arms your security system. That way, you can simply leave the house, close the door and press your four digit code on the Yale lock and you will know your house is fully secured.
At the same time, you can set up your LYNX Touch system so that when you unlock the door from the Yale lock, it will automatically disarm your security system. Setting up your Z-Wave locks in this way makes using your security system easier than ever.
