The Honeywell L3000PK is a LYNX Plus wireless security system that includes the L3000 LYNX Plus wireless alarm control panel, (3) 5816 wireless door and window sensors, a 5800PIR-RES wireless pet immune motion detector and a 5834-4 wireless security key fob5834-4 wireless key fob.
The Honeywell LYNX Plus wireless security system includes everything you need to protect your home from intrusion. The L3000 LYNX Plus wireless alarm control panel plugs into a standard wall outlet using the included AC transformer. The alarm control panel also comes equipped with a backup battery which will power your wireless security system for up to (4) hours during a power outage. You should install the Honeywell 5816 wireless door sensors on your front, back and side doors to protect your home’s entry points. If you don’t have three entry doors, you can use the third wireless sensor on an easily accessible window to protect that opening as well. If you need more than (3) wireless door and window sensors, you may add extra 5816 wireless sensors to your security system to protect all of your home’s openings. The 5800PIR-RES wireless motion detector should be installed in the corner of your main living room. An intruder will almost always walk through your living room after they break-in since they know that’s where high value items like TVs and stereo equipment will be located. As soon as they enter the room protected by the wireless motion detector, an alarm will be activated and the built-in siren will sound the alarm from the L3000 wireless alarm control panel. When entering or exiting your home, you should disarm and arm your wireless security system using the built-in keypad on the LYNX Plus alarm control panel. You can also use your included 5834-4 wireless security key fob to arm or disarm your wireless security system from your doorstep.
To activate your Honeywell LYNX Plus wireless security system, simply press your (4) digit user code and then press either the ‘STAY’ or ‘AWAY’ button. You should arm the system in stay mode when you are home but want your doors and windows protected. The interior motion detectors will not be active in this arming mode. You should arm the system is away mode when no one is inside the home and you want all devices active. You must have all windows and doors protected by a wireless window or door sensor closed before arming your LYNX Plus wireless security system. After arming in stay mode, the L3000 wireless alarm control panel will beep (3) times and “Armed Stay” will be displayed on the LCD screen. The red LED below the LCD screen will light up to indicate the LYNX Plus is armed and the wireless alarm control panel will say “armed stay, exit now.” If someone else in the home is leaving, they will then have a set amount of time to exit the property (60 seconds by default). During this exit delay period, any door programmed as an entry/exit zone can be opened and shut without activating an actual alarm. After arming in away mode, the LYNX Plus control panel will beep twice and display the “Armed Away” message on the LCD screen. The red LED will indicate the system is armed and the L3000 will say “armed away, exit now.” If your LYNX Plus has been programmed to sound the exit warning, the system will beep slowly but continuously during the exit delay period. During the last (10) seconds of the exit delay, the system will beep rapidly as a warning to leave the property to avoid an alarm activation.
When entering your home, you must enter through a door programmed as an entry/exit zone. The door programmed with this zone type, will not sound an alarm as soon as it is opened. Instead, the entry delay period will begin (30 seconds default.) If the security system is disarmed (by pressing your user code before the entry delay period is over), the green LED will light up indicating the system is disarmed and the LYNX Plus control panel will beep once. You can also use the disarm button on your wireless security key fob to disarm the system. The L3000 wireless alarm control panel will sound a long confirmation ding when disarmed by a key fob. If the security system is not disarmed and the entry delay period ends, an audible alarm will sound and the system will speak “alarm” followed by the programmed zone voice descriptor. The LED screen will also display the zone that was activated. The activated alarm zone descriptor will be repeated every (45) seconds and is interlaced with the audible siren. If you come home and your LED screen is displaying an alarm and a zone number, you will need to enter your user code followed by the ‘OFF’ key after disarming the system to clear the latched alarm message. If the green LED is blinking, a fault exists on one of your wireless zones (a door or window is open) and you must correct the fault before arming the wireless security system again. You can always press the ‘STATUS’ key (the * key) to have the system announce any faulted zones.
If you want your LYNX Plus wireless security system to be monitored by Alarm Grid’s central station, you will need to plug a phone cord into the back of the L3000 wireless control panel and then plug the other end of the phone cord into a live telephone jack. With the phone cord connected, all alarm signals will be sent to Alarm Grid’s central station so they can be monitored by a live central station operator. If you don’t have your Honeywell wireless security system monitored, it will only sound a local alarm as a deterrent to the intruder. Unfortunately, phone line monitoring isn't very reliable anymore. Security systems are designed to send analog signals to a central station receiver and as phone systems and phone companies are all switching from analog to digital, the analog signals sent from the security system may not get through over the digital signaling path. As a much more reliable form of communication, the L3000 supports AlarmNet cellular alarm communicators as well. There is an AT&T version, the GSMVLP4G, and a Verizon version, the CDMA-L3, and with one of these communicators installed (choose the one with the best available cellular network in your area), the system is sending a digital signal through the wireless cellular network so that no internet or phone service is needed for monitoring. Not only is this a faster and more reliable form of communication, but there is also no phone or internet wire that can be cut before the intruder enters the property that would stop the alarm from sending the signals out for monitoring purposes. Another advantage of going with cellular communications using an AlarmNet communicator is that you would be able to get Honeywell’s Total Connect interactive service. The Total Connect service is not available with phone line alarm monitoring.
