Which Security Cameras are Compatible w/ an L5100?
While a lot of people want a no-frills security system, for others Honeywell offers a video surveillance option. However, with the L5100 security system, unlike the Tuxedo Touch, you can't actually view your cameras through the LYNX Touch control panel, whereas The Tuxedo Touch will allow you to see the local cameras on its 7 inch display.
The only way to integrate cameras with an L5100 security system, is to use the AlarmNet security cameras that are compatible with Honeywell's interactive service, Total Connect 2.0. With these IP cameras connected to your network, you can view them through your Total Connect account. In the Total Connect app, you can control your L5100 security system, turning it on and off, and can also use the L5100's suite of home automation control features. With Alarm Net cameras installed and tied to your account, you can even view your property remotely.
So, the question isn't really which cameras are compatible with Honeywell's L5100, but, rather, which cameras are compatible with Total Connect. There are three currently available. There is a fixed indoor camera, a pan-tilt camera and an outdoor camera.
The newer versions of the Lynx Touch family of panels, the L5210 and the L7000 do allow the Honeywell IPCAM series of cameras to be viewed locally on the panel's touch screen. The only requirement is that the panel have a WIFI or IP connection, and that it be connected to the same network as the cameras. The L5210 allows you to view 1 camera, the L7000 allows you to view up to 4 cameras.
