Honeywell L5200 & L7000: Flash Upgradeability! The Future Proof Security System

NOTE: Firmware upgradability is only available for the L5200, L5210, and L7000. The L5200 requires an over-the-air update, which can only be initiated by Resideo technical support. The L5210 and the L7000 can be upgraded using the Honeywell LYNXTOUCH-MSD Firmware Updater Tool, which can be purchased separately.

The LynxR does not support firmware updates but you can physically swap out the panel for a new Honeywell wireless panel like the Lyric Controller: https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-lyric-controller and continue to use your existing 5800 series Honeywell wireless sensors with the new Lyric panel.
I have an old LYNXR system. Can I upgrade the panel and use all of my current equipment, ie: motion sensor and window/door devices?
There must have been some miscommunication. We are unable to push firmware to the Lynx Touch panels like we can with the Lyric panels. However we can have Honeywell push the update for you remotely. They do not need to schedule a tech to come out. I have already queued up the firmware update for you. I will email on the existing ticket we have after the update is complete.
Is flash upgradeability no longer an option? I signed up for self bronze 2 days ago and was told AlarmGrid doesn't update software, but he would schedule a Honeywell technician to come to the house if I wanted. I installed my L7000 panel 2 years ago with rev. 7.00690. I don't have any problems with the system, just thought it was strange not to have bug fixes in 2 years. Thanks.
Yes, you can use a 5821 (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5821 ) wireless water/temperature sensor and an FP280 (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-fp280 ) water probe. Is your L7000 monitored currently?
Hi, is there a water sensor that can be used with the system L7000?
We can have your system firmware upgraded as long as you are signed up for any of our no-contract monitoring plans available at https://www.alarmgrid.com/monitoring. Honeywell doesn't post a feature list for firmware upgrades on the LYNX Touch panels so we aren't exactly sure of the new features/functionality that the upgrade would provide but as far as we know, it's mostly general bug fixes.
What monitoring membership is required for firmware upgrades? Also, what changes took place from version 7.0 to 8.0?
Right now the latest version is 8.00.155 for the L7000.
What is the current version of firmware for the L7000?
These are the wireless keypads that can be used with the L5200. The difference between them is that one talks (same voice as the L5200), while the other does not. https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5828v https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5828 This is the power supply that can be used for either one: https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-k0991
Hello, I'm new to this so forgive me if this is an odd question, but I just purchased and setup the entire Honeywell L5200 system. Does this system have an add on panel for another exit?
We just requested Honeywell to update your panel's firmware and we'll send you an email once it's been done. They don't manually push the updates on the L5200 (at least at this time) but they can as requested.
I have my system monitored by you all, Does your company automatically do firmware upgrades or do I have to initiate it on my end? I have the L5200 with wifi and cell.
Many thanks for the detailed explanation. I really appreciate it.
The GD004-Z is compatible with the Tuxedo Touch but not the LYNX Touch. If you want to do garage door control with your L5200, you should use the 5877 (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5877 ) kit which includes a Z-Wave siren and a wireless RF relay module that you wire into your garage door controller. If you add a 5822T (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5822t ) to the door, you'll have an icon on your panel showing a door open or closed that you can tap to change the state of the overhead door. You can tie this in with a Total Connect 2.0 account that has automation services as well.
Thanks for the quick reply! The Linear GD004-Z zwave garage door opener is supposedly compatible with the Lynx 5200, but the one I purchased does not work with my L5200. Do you think it could be a matter of just upgrading the L5200 firmware?
Press Security > More > Tools > enter Master Code > Test and the Rev. number at the top will be your current version. The panel can only be upgraded if you have an active monitoring account with an AlarmNet provider. We offer that service on a no-contract basis if you are interested.
How can I tell the firmware version of my Lynx 5200?
Yes, you would need the L5100-WIFI module ( https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-l5100-wifi ) or the 3GL ( https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-3gl ) cellular module.
Thanks you Sterling for your support, I just have a couple of questions , do I need certain modules installed and can I activate such services if I'm located outside the US
Thanks Sterling , do I need certain modules installed for such update
You would have to go through the firmware update using your alarm company. If you aren't active with any service, you won't be able to do the firmware update yourself. We offer no-contract services online at https://www.alarmgrid.com/monitoring if you are interested in using us. We'd be happy to help you with a firmware update once you are activated with us.
Hi I just bought a Lynx7000 but firmware is outdated can you guide me through the upgrade process and where to acquire the files
No, you can't link multiple LYNX Touch panels together. The L7000 supports up to 80 zones though.
Can you link 2 L5200 or L7000 and L5200 together if you need more zones?

Description

NOTE: Firmware upgradability is only available for the L5200, L5210, and L7000. The L5200 requires an over-the-air update, which can only be initiated by Resideo technical support. The L5210 and the L7000 can be upgraded using the Honeywell LYNXTOUCH-MSD Firmware Updater Tool, which can be purchased separately.

The most exciting new features for Honeywell's new panels is that they are going to allow the panels to be upgraded remotely. While previous panels required that you buy a completely new panel to get access to new features, hopefully the L5200 and the L7000 will change that forever. As we see how this feature is used, we are hoping for a much more future proof system.

NOTE: Firmware upgradability is only available for the L5200, L5210, and L7000. The L5200 requires an over-the-air update, which can only be initiated by Resideo technical support. The L5210 and the L7000 can be upgraded using the Honeywell LYNXTOUCH-MSD Firmware Updater Tool, which can be purchased separately.

So the last key feature, and this is one feature that we've anxiously been awaiting, flash upgrade ability. While these old panels; 5000, 5100 and newer 5100, as they gave new features you needed to upgrade your hardware. If you had the original L5100 with the grey screen, and then all of a sudden you read about the garage door control, there was no option to upgrade the panel to be able to do that. You would have to buy the new panel. With the 5200 and the 7000 they're going to be allowing us to flash upgrade the firmware inside the panel.

Now, because this is a new feature, and we haven't really seen any of the upgrades yet, we don't know exactly what that will mean, but we're hopeful that it's a little more future proof, when you buy the panel as they release new features for the panel, we're hoping that won't mean a full hardware upgrade. Perhaps, more like a phone, as new features come out, you can just download the software and you'll get the features right with the same hardware. So lookout for those upgrades as Honeywell releases the new software features, okay?

So that is our whole run down of all of the LYNX Touch panels. If you have any questions about the LYNX Touch panel that may be in your home or the differences between any of the systems, please email us, support@alarmgrid.com., and make sure to subscribe to our channel, as we will be releasing more videos about these two new panels as we learn more.
