Will My Honeywell L7000 Work w/ SmartThings?

Yes, your Honeywell L7000 will work with SmartThings. The L7000 will serve as a secondary Z-Wave controller, and the SmartThings Hub will serve as the primary. Any Z-Wave device that is paired with the SmartThings App will be pushed over to the L7000. However, some extra hardware is needed.

First of all, the L7000 can only perform Z-Wave smart home functions if an L5100-ZWAVE Card is installed and active. As a result, you will need to add this module if you want to use your L7000 with Samsung SmartThings. Once you have an L5100-ZWAVE activated with your L7000, you can get started with the pairing process.

Setting your L7000 as a secondary controller to your Samsung SmartThings Hub provides some key advantages. Any Z-Wave device paired with SmartThings will be automatically pushed to the L7000. You can then use the L7000 to individually control all of your Z-Wave devices. This will make the L7000 Panel a convenient one-stop location for operating your Z-Wave devices on an individual basis. These devices will also be available on Total Connect 2.0. Scene control will be possible through SmartThings, through the L7000, and through Total Connect 2.0.

One great thing about the SmartThings Hub is that it supports Z-Wave Plus technology. This means that adding a Z-Wave Plus device to the SmartThings Hub will allow for maximum wireless range and battery life. Any Z-Wave Plus device used with the SmartThings Hub that is pushed over to a secondary controller like the L7000 will retain the Z-Wave Plus range and battery life. This means that you will be able to control Z-Wave Plus devices with the L7000, while still being able to take full advantage of the performance offered from Z-Wave Plus.

As far as setting the L7000 as a secondary controller to Samsung SmartThings, the process is actually pretty simple. Make sure the L7000 and the SmartThings Hub are in relatively close proximity. Open the SmartThings App, and choose the option "+ Add a Thing". Then turn your attention to the L7000. Start from the main screen. Choose Automation > down arrow > Tools > Advanced Tools > Master or Installer Code (defaults are 1234 and 4112) > Learn. The L7000 and the SmartThings Hub should then begin pairing.

NOTE: If devices have been paired directly with the L7000, they will not automatically transfer to the SmartThings Hub after the L7000 is paired with it. In order to work with SmartThings, these devices will need to be excluded from the L7000, and included with SmartThings. If multiple devices have been paired to the L7000, the “Reset Controller” option can be used to clear all devices at once. From there, each device should be excluded, and then included with the SmartThings Hub. Once that has been done, follow the steps above to pair the L7000 with SmartThings, and all the devices from SmartThings will be transferred over to the L7000. These devices can then be included in scenes associated with the L7000, programmed either locally, or through Total Connect 2.0.
