Description

Important Note: This module is only compatible with the L5200, L5210, and the L7000 Panels running Firmware Version 9.00.209 or higher. This module will not work with the older L5000 and L5100 Alarm Panels. There is currently no LTE module that is compatible with the older LYNX Touch Systems.

The Honeywell LTE-L57A is the AT&T version of the LTE cellular communicator for the Honeywell LYNX Touch Panels. The module will allow a Honeywell L5200, L5210, or L7000 to connect with the fast and reliable AT&T LTE Network. This is crucial for ensuring the long-term function of the system.

Connecting with the AT&T LTE Network provides superb performance for the Honeywell LYNX Touch Systems when communicating with the Honeywell AlarmNet servers. LTE refers to "Long-Term Evolution", and these networks are known for their ultra-fast speeds and overall reliability. This is very important for anyone who wants consistent and dependable communication with AlarmNet and a central monitoring station.

Although older cellular networks (2G, 3G, etc.) are in the process of being discontinued, AT&T has repeatedly stated that they plan on supporting their 4G LTE network well into the distant future. The LTE network will continue to remain active even as 5G networks are introduced in the coming years. By obtaining this communicator, a user is future-proofing their LYNX Touch System so that it can continue to protect their home or business for many years. This communicator is an excellent long-term investment for keeping these versatile and capable LYNX Touch Panels running and communicating reliably.

Cellular networks provide tremendous performance and dependability for alarm systems overall. Unlike WIFI, a cellular communication path almost never goes down. Another benefit is that cellular networks are not affected by common power outages, and a system will remain monitored even when the electricity is out. With LTE speeds, the panel will enjoy fast communication with AlarmNet. Not only will this allow for a quicker response from a central monitoring station during an alarm, it will also help any smart home automation commands to go through more efficiently. Plus, the user will receive personal notifications via text and/or email more quickly as well. This makes upgrading to LTE essential for getting the most out of the system.

Please Note: Requires Firmware Version 9.00.209 or higher on LYNX Touch L5200, L5210 and L7000. Newly purchased systems should already be running this firmware version. Older models will require a firmware update using the firmware updater tool, which can be purchased separately..

Note: AlarmNet360 considers an L5200 System to be an L5210 System once it has been upgraded to Firmware Revision 9 or higher.

Great LTE Communicator!

The Honeywell LTE-L57A is an AT&T LTE Communicator designed for use with Honeywell LYNX Touch Panels. It is compatible with any Honeywell L5200, L5210, and L7000 that is running Firmware Revision 9 or higher. If the panel is running a lower firmware, then it must be upgraded using the upgrader tool. By using this communicator, the LYNX Touch System can connect with AlarmNet360 for monitoring service. The communicator is easy to use, and it will allow you to keep your panel monitored well into the very distant future. And once activated it will allow you to use your system with Total Connect 2.0. This is an excellent communicator, and we give it 5 Stars.

There are many things to like about the Honeywell LTE-L57A. For one, it will provide reliable cellular monitoring for a compatible system. Cellular monitoring is perfect for security systems, as it is much more reliable than IP only monitoring. Once you install and activate the LTE-L57A, you will be able to use the system with AlarmNet360 and Total Connect 2.0. This is an interactive monitoring and automation platform that you can access from anywhere using a web browser or a mobile app on your phone. This service allows you to arm and disarm, check current system status, control Z-Wave devices, and more.

The biggest downside to the LTE-L57A is that it needs to be physically installed inside a panel. This isn't difficult, but it will require you to power down the panel and open it up. Also note that the LTE-L57A can only be used with a LYNX Touch System running Firmware Version 9.00.209 or higher. This is only possible on an L5200, L5210, and L7000. Older LYNX Touch Panels cannot receive the upgrade. Additionally, the module requires a monitoring plan that supports cellular communication. This could lead to higher monitoring costs if you are currently on an IP-only plan.

Overall, we really like the Honeywell LTE-L57A. It is a great module if you have a LYNX Touch System and strong service from the AT&T LTE Network. It gets a 5 Star Rating.

Good: Reliable Cellular Communication, Access to ANet and TC2

Bad: Must be Installed, Select Panel Compatibility, Requires Cellular Plan
