Honeywell 5808W3 - Wireless Smoke & Heat Detector

Feel better with this connected via Total Connect
Submitted on 01/06/2013 Kevin

While I haven't and hope to never actually have this go off, just the fact that this smoke/heat detector integrates into the alarm system and can generate an alarm and alerts via Total Connect in the event it did happen brings me a little peace of mind.

In addition to the smoke/heat detector this sensor also has a freeze detector as well that could alert us if the temperature gets too cold, and help prevent freezing pipes or anything else that goes along with extreme cold here in the Midwest during the winter months. Setup is quick and easy and you just need to program each of these features (fire/smoke, maintenance (batteries), and freeze warning)in as separate zones.

Honeywell 5811 - Wireless Thin Door Sensor and Window Sensor

Awesome sensors with great range
Submitted on 01/06/2013 Kevin

Bought enough of these to cover every window and door in my house that is easily accessible because they are thin, wireless, and was told by AlarmGrid they have great range. They were not kidding and these things work great.

I have had no problems with any of the sensors connecting to my Lynx 5100 system, which is centrally located, in my house. They are very thin and do not create eye sores to look at and I also found they work great on double-hung windows. I simply put the receiver on the lower pane and the magnet on the upper pane and now if either of the windows is opened the alarm will trigger.

Honeywell 5828V - Wireless Talking Fixed English Alarm Keypad

Perfect add on for Lynx 5100
Submitted on 01/06/2013 Kevin

I purchased this as an add on from my Lynx 5100 wireless system to place close to my entry door so that we didn't have to run up/down the stairs when coming into or going out of the house. It works perfectly. All you need to do it setup your house code on by the Lynx 5100 and set the same house code on the 5828v and you are up an running. One thing that I would recommend to anyone that is looking to purchase this is to also purchase the additional AC Power cord to go with it as the chime and voice functions will work all of the time if it is powered in to AC power.

It can be run off of battery power only and the installation is much easier (if you want to make sure and hide cables and cords) however you will lose the voice features after the system goes into standby mode and will always have to push the * button to wake the unit up. With the help and recommendations from the people at AlarmGrid, I purchased the optional power cord up from and it works like a champ.

Honeywell L5100PK-WIFI-4G - L5100 LYNX Touch Dual Path Wireless Security System

Exactly what I was looking for
Submitted on 01/06/2013 Kevin

I had 3 main requirements for an alarm: 1) must be DIY and have self monitoring capabilities 2) needed WiFi or cellular connectivity as I have no land line 3) it needed to be completely wireless because my house is completely finished with easy way to run wires to sensors.

This system met all of my requirements and has exceeded my expectations in terms of features and quality. In addition to what is included I also added a glass break sensor, smoke/heat alarm, an extra keypad, and multiple door/window sensors to cover all of my doors and windows that are accessible from the ground floor. It was extremely easy to setup and works great. I love the fact that I can arm/disarm/monitor everything from my cell phone or computer and with TotalConnect I am receive alerts via text and e-mail based on the conditions I selected (arm/disarm/alarm/etc.)

The help I received from the folks at AlarmGrid was also outstanding. They were extremely responsive and made some great recommendations on sensors and helped me through all of the activation and setup necessary to get this going. I would definitely recommend purchasing from them.

Thanks!

The reason for dealing with you was that you knew what you were talking about, straight away you understood my problem. Lots of companies sell magnetic reed switches without understanding how they work, this never fails to surprise me, how can anyone sell a product without that knowledge, do people not have enquiring minds?

Honeywell LT-CABLE - Universal Security System Power Supply Cable

LT-CABLE
Submitted on 11/07/2012 Arun Samuel

My Lynx 5000 came without the power supply and power cable. So, I ordered the cable from Alarm Grid. The installation was a no-brainer. Pretty straight forward. Alarm Grid's service was excellent. Also, the company wrote me to find out about the product and the transaction.

Honeywell 7939-2 - Surface Mount Door Contact and Window Contact

couldn't find these anywhere
Submitted on 10/22/2012 Frank

I work for a local alarm company and our supplier said these were on backorder for 3 weeks. I went online and found these from Alarm Grid ready to ship that day. Had them in my hand 3 days later! Very impressive for an alarm website.

Honeywell GSMV4G - AlarmNet Cellular Alarm Monitoring Communicator

Upgraded from GSMV
Submitted on 10/22/2012 Tony

As soon as I saw an article saying AT&T was dropping 2G coverage by end of 2016 I called my alarm company to get a 4G cell backup instead. They told me there was no 4G available. I searched for months online until I finally found the GSMV4G. Bought this from Alarm Grid and had them help me switch out the old one. Now my TC2 account works better than ever.

Honeywell 7626-50HC - AlarmNet 50’ RF Antenna Coax Cable

Antenna on the roof now where it belongs.
Submitted on 10/22/2012 Bill Franklin

I was having issues getting a good cellular connection from my GSMV when I had it in my basement. Found this cable and now I ran it all the way up into the attic so that I could install the antenna pointing at the nearest ATT tower. I haven't had a single communication trouble signal since I added this cable.
