Honeywell 5800C2W - Hardwire to Wireless System 9-Zone Conversion Module

Homeowner
Submitted on 08/24/2014 Joe Maggio

I recently installed the 5800c2w on an old wired system and connected my zones to a Lynx 5100. I wanted to take advantage of the old alarm system and the hidden door jamb wired contacts on each door. I watched the Alarm Grid videos prior to the installation and they were a great help providing everything I needed to set this unit up correctly. The setup was easy and I used the learning mode to set up each zone. The 5800c2w has a good wireless range and I had no problems locating it inside my existing metal alarm box. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to update their old wireless system.

Honeywell 5818MNL - Wireless Mini Recessed Door Sensor and Window Sensor

Great for doors
Submitted on 04/15/2014 Eric

If your application is suitable, I definitely recommend the 5818MNL over the 5811 or similar. My installation was especially easy as the existing hardwire system already used similar wired sensors. For me it was as easy as removing the old sensor, adding about 1-inch of depth to the whole with a 3/4 spade bit and then installng. Done. I plan to use these for all entry and sliding doors.

Honeywell LYNXZ-KT57-WIFI - L5100PK with WIFI communicator and 10 5811 Wireless Sensors

Easy to install, easy to use with great feature set
Submitted on 04/15/2014 Eric

Very well integrated unit. Touchscreen keypad serves as main control unit for security system. Easy to install, just need to the LT-Cable if your outlet is within 8-feet. If not, just as easy to wire with 18/2 thermostat wire to the control panel. Programming this unit is very, very easy. While Honeywell does not actively market this system to the DIY-homeowner it is ideally suited for this use. You do not need to be a professional to get this up and running. Just watch the videos, you will see. The 5811 sensors are much better than the 5816 as they are significantly smaller/lower profile. The WIFI connects easily to my Verion FiOS supplied router and last but certainly not least the customer support provided by Alarm Grid is second to none in the security services category.

Great product. Was easy to install and wire. Follow the Alarm Grid videos and you'll have a fairly easy install. Product works like a charm and is very adaptable to various needs. Great for replacing on older wired system to take advantage of the wired portions and flexibility to add in wireless devices using a wireless capable receiver like the 6162RF

Honeywell 5822T - Wireless Garage Tilt Sensor

Easy to install
Submitted on 03/24/2014 Mark Fisher

I added this item to a garage door I can not easily see. It enrolled easily and I use the included mounting plate to put it on my door. My door is a solid full insulted metal door I uses 2 small machine screws Predrilled smaller than the screw.

Note when you enroll look at the arrow on the case as that is the vertical direction for "not tilted or open" thus once enrolled be sure to install it that way as well the arrow blends in and it could be easy to install upside down. I went with my top door panel near center. Also activated the chime so when My wife comes home I hear the announcement long before I hear her hit the back door we have a large detached garage. I paired this with the 5277 Garage door relay so I can operate the door from anywhere via Total connect Once my Ups guy knows he can text me when he pulls up and I can open the door he can either doorbell close it or I can close and the tilt sensor will elt you know its all good.

Honeywell L5100PK - L5100 LYNX Touch Wireless Security System

Awesome
Submitted on 02/04/2014 mark fisher

I bought this ala carte as I had an older Ademco panel so my sensors were all 5800 style and easy to enroll into the new Lynxtouch. Any questions I had were answered and walked through while I was at the panel. Security Language and terminology takes a little thinking but like anything else learn able. This system puts you in control rather than my old alarm system I wa married to the company if I wanted to make changes. This sytem is awesome to expand and really secure your home Smoke and Fire monitoring is included. The straight forward thinking of this company will continue to build loyal customers simply. Between all the online manuals and Help Videos you learn alot.

Honeywell L5100-ZWAVE - LYNX Touch Z-Wave Controller


Submitted on 02/04/2014 Mark Fisher

Well this was a new concept for me as I originally got a new Lynxtouch L5100 to allow me to have better control and flexibility with my system. My old system was very difficult to program and not as user Friendly. So after exploring what Zwave was I added this little mini board. very easy to add and let the panel know it is installed. I have added a few switches. I added 3 Zwave Thermostats as that is the limitation however I have a 4 zone (not security zone) Boiler so I chose the 3 zones that are the most important. I have plent of room to expand on lighting and Receptacles. This little module would be plenty for most typical homes. Had I known before what i have learned and read I would have gotten maybe the Tuxedo Touch. As this is now a hobby to add zwave and overcome the challenges because of the age of my house and infrastructure. Total connect is a great tool to incorporate remote access to the modules and creating scenes and rules. SO yes 5 stars on Installation of the panel. and use with Total Connect. NOw on to my reading up on the Tuxedo Touch. Might swap them out!!
