The Honeywell L5100PK-5811 is an L5100 LYNX Touch wireless home security system that includes three of the nicer looking Honeywell 5811 door / window contacts instead of the bigger 5816 sensors that come with the more traditional L5100PK security system. In addition to the 5811 sensors, the L5100PK-5811 kit also includes the LYNX 5100 wireless control panel, a 5800PIR-RES wireless motion detector and a 5834-4 wireless four button key fob.
While the 5811 contacts are smaller and have a flatter profile than the 5816 contacts, they do lack the ability to connect to a wired loop. Therefore, if you have existing wired contact loops that you would need to connect to a wireless sensor, you may want to choose the L5100PK security system kit instead. The 5816 contacts that come in the L5100PK kit can be used as wireless sensors or they can be connected to a wired loop and just act as a wireless transmitter to send the alarm signal from the wired contact back to the wireless L5100 control panel. If you are going to be using all wireless sensors and you don’t have any wired loops, then the L5100PK-5811 is the perfect security system kit to start out with as the 5811 sensors boast the best range of the more aesthetically pleasing Honeywell wireless door and window sensors.
The L5100PK-5811 is a great security system kit to build around as you design a custom security system to fit your needs. With the award winning L5100 LYNX Touch control panel, three door and window sensors, a motion detector and a wireless key fob, this kit has everything you’d need to protect an apartment or smaller home or business. If you have a larger property that requires more door and window sensors, you can simply add on additional 5811 sensors. Of course, you can also choose any of the other Honeywell wireless door and window sensors as well. You may also want to consider adding extra wireless motion detectors or wireless glass break detectors for addiotional interior protection. The LYNX Touch wireless home security system can also be used to protect your home from more than just break ins. Adding wireless smoke and heat detectors or
wireless carbon monoxide detectors will protect your family from life threatening environmental emergencies while adding environmental sensors will protect your home from flood or low temperature situations. Using all of Honeywell’s wireless 5800 Series sensors allows you to maximize the value of your security system.
If you want monitoring services for your LYNX Touch, you have many different options. You can hook up a regular phone line if you’d like traditional central station monitoring. You can also add an internet or cellular alarm communicator if you wanted Honeywell’s interactive Total Connect service. The L5100-WIFI is a wireless internet communicator and the
ILP5 is a hardwired internet communicator. If you choose the L5100-WIFI, you can pair it with the GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator or you can just use the cellular communicator by itself. The LYNX Touch gives you the option to choose the monitoring path and service that works for you and your family.
