What Kind of Security Systems are Compatible w/ Total Connect?
Only Honeywell Security Systems are compatible with Total Connect. The Honeywell Systems that we offer include VISTA Panels, LYNX Series Panels and the Honeywell Lyric Controller. Your system will require internet or cellular connectivity in order to access the Total Connect service.
Total Connect provides users with several great features. Most users with Total Connect use the service to check the status of their security systems and to control their home automation devices while they are away from home. This is possible using the Total Connect mobile app. With the mobile app, you can remotely arm and disarm your system, check the status of any security sensor and control any Z-Wave devices that have been programmed with your panel. These excellent features allow Total Connect to greatly enhance the accessibility of your Honeywell security system.
Total Connect also serves as the central hub for any security cameras that you have set up with your system. From Total Connect, you can view the live feed of all of your compatible security cameras and change any of their settings or configurations. Total Connect also allows you to view any recordings from the previous 7 or 30 days (depending on the cameras in use). If there is ever a video clip that you want to save, you can download it from Total Connect and keep it for permanent access. Please note that you will need to use Honeywell IP Cameras with the Total Connect service.
In order to use the Total Connect service, your panel will need to have internet or cellular connectivity. This is so that your system will be able to send and receive signals from Total Connect. Additionally, you must also have a monitoring plan that includes access to Total Connect. Upon activating your monitoring service, your alarm company should send you an email with information on how to complete the set up of your Total Connect account. You will then use your account to access the Total Connect service.
