Which Honeywell Alarm Panel is compatible with Z-Wave?
So you're looking for a smart home of the future AND want home security? Well luckily there are a couple of amazing Honeywell alarm panels that support Z-Wave and they're even some of the best Z-wave controllers money can buy.
The Lynx Touch series, are all-in-one alarm control panels with a built-in touchscreen interface, and RF receiver. When paired with a Honeywell L5100-ZWAVE, they can interface with Z-Wave devices and allow you to create scenes and rules with integrated security features. The Lyric Controller is similar to the Lynx Touch series, but in addition to the built-in touchscreen and RF receiver, it also comes with the Z-Wave controller built-in.
The Honeywell Tuxedo Touch is not an alarm control panel. It is actually an Advanced User Interface (AUI) keypad that needs to be wired to a compatible, Honeywell Vista panel. It does have a built-in Z-Wave controller. In fact, if you don't have a security system, and don't need it as a keypad, you can use the Tuxedo Touch as a standalone home automation controller.
When combined with one of our alarm monitoring plans, which includes remote home automation, your alarm system will allow you to view and control your Z-Wave devices from anywhere in the world, as long as you have access to an Internet connection.
By pairing Z-Wave with your alarm system, you can accomplish things that no other Z-Wave controller can do. Some creative rules you can use to pair Z-Wave with your alarm system? Turning on lights when a motion sensor is tripped or adjusting your Z-Wave thermostat to an energy saving setting when you arm your system Away, and changing it back again when you Disarm.
