The 6150rf was recommended because I wanted to add a keypad and some wireless sensors. Turns out my system didnt have a wireless receiver even though the salesman that sold it to me promised me it would. Now that I found Alarm Grid Im glad I dont have to buy anything else from my local company. Sterling helped me save money by getting this instead of a keypad and separate wireless receiver and he walked me through setting it up. Took me about 20 minutes and now I have wireless smoke detectors in my house.

I had a local alarm company install a Honeywell V20P system last year. Every since then, every time I need something changed on my system they try to charge me $90 to come out and make the change even if the change takes 2 seconds. I got fed up with that after the 1st time so I called Alarm Grid since they talked about do it yourself security. They were very helpful and told me that the keypad my company sold me can't program the system...big surprise! They suggested I buy the 6160 to replace it and once I got it they helped me install it. I bought a 5811 contact too for the door to my garage and they walked me through using the 6160 to program the 5811. Now the sensor works great and I love having the option to make changes myself without having to pay!

This touchscreen allows me to control my security system and do wireless home automation. So far I've added Z-Wave locks for my front door and back door and I replaced my thermostats with Z-Wave thermostats. I have it programmed so that when I turn my system off, it sets my thermostat to 75 and unlocks my doors. When I turn my system on, it locks my doors and sets my thermostat to 80. Now, I'm thinking about getting some Z-Wave lights so I can control that too.

This was a panel that i used to have. I upgraded to the L5100 recently, but this panel did a great job while we used it. It was simple, and it got the job done.

I always hated how our panels looked but my husband wanted me to be safe so I put up with it. Once I saw the 6460 I made him replace all 3 panels with these instead. These go much better with my stainless steel appliances.

Love that the Vista-21ip has the internet module built right in. Instead of having to deal with adding an extra device, I just mounted the metal can on my wall and hooked up a Cat-5 from my router. I have all wireless devices so I added the 6160RF keypad also. Great system, highly recommended!

This is a great price for a great keypad. I bought a house that had an older V20P and all doors wired up. I wanted to add some motion detectors so I just replaced the older keypad with a 6160RF. Instead of having to run wire through my walls, the 6160RF has a wireless receiver so I just used Honeywell wireless motion detectors. I added some wireless smoke detectors while I was at it.

Man why didn't they have this sooner? I finally have my house fully hooked up with security and home automation and I control it all from my new iPhone 5! Honeywell really did a great job with the L5100 LYNX Touch.

The weather issue is due to the way that Honeywell had it programmed to use a google API that has been removed. I am too waiting for the weather fix.
I still love the fact that I can arm and disarm my system without TotalConnect.

The Honeywell LT-Cable greatly simplified installing AC power to the unit. Thank you for publishing this information and for providing the ability for us to order the LT-Cable as we were struggling with why the Lynx Touch AC power plug would be packaged with the Lynx Touch unit without a connected power cord. Alarmgrid.com is a great service for DIY customers. Thanks again.
