Honeywell's Compatible Z Wave Alarm Panels
Hi, DIY-ers. Dylan here with Alarm Grid. Today, we're going to be talking about which panels have Z-wave compatibility. We're basically going to be going over a majority of the panels that we sell on our website. I will make mention of some that we don't sell, but we still do support. But for now, we're mainly going to do the ones that we have on the site. So as you can see here, we have a good amount of panels in front of us. We have the Links panels, the 5210, and the O-7000. We have both the GC2 and GC3. We have the Lyric, as well as the IQ2, or Quosis, and the Tuxedo Touch. Now, the Tuxedo Touch isn't technically a panel. It's more of a keypad. But we'll come back to that. So for the Link systems, they are Z-wave compatible. However, you do have to install the Z-wave module into them. So both of them will be using what's called the L-5100-- I'm sorry, the 5100 Z-wave chip. Pretty much goes into the same area on both panels. Let me get one open. [BEEPING] We'll ignore the tamper for now. So yes, as you can see right here, we have the Z-wave module right there. It's a little chip that you just pop into the side of the circuit board. It sticks in. Same area as the O-7000, same exact spot, same exact chip. Basically, once you put that in there, that gives the panel Z-wave compatibility, so you can use home automation devices such as lights, logs, thermostats, et cetera. Now, for panels that have Z-wave built in, the first one we'll go off is, we'll keep with Honeywell. We have the Lyric panel. This does have Z-wave built right into it, so you don't have to install any external modules or anything. Once you power it up, you can do Z-wave right away. The GC2 and GC3 also, same idea, they both have Z-wave compatibility without needing an extra chip to be installed to them. It's just built right in. The Quosis is also very similar with that, as it does have Z-wave built in, as well. So pretty much, Lyric, the 2-gig panels, as well as Quosis, all Z-wave built in. For the Tuxedo Touch keypad, as I mentioned, that's not a panel, but just as a keypad for the Vista systems, 15P, 20P, 21IP, so on and so forth. This gives the Vista Z-wave compatibility. It's also a touchscreen keypad. It's not powered on right now, but you can Control Z-wave through this. You can set this up with your Wi-Fi network, as well, so you can access them online. Now, there is also another device for the Vista systems. I give it the Z-wave compatibility. That's called the Vam. That's pretty much just an external device. You'll mount it either on the wall, near the box, anything like that. You'll wire the device into the Vista system, and that gives the Vista Z-wave compatibility. So you don't necessarily need the Tuxedo. But if you want the nice touch screen feature, as well, it also gives you Z-wave. So it's kind of a two-in-one. We do have plenty of more information about Z-wave, as well as Z-wave devices, how to set up Z-wave, how to activate Z-wave remotely, on our website, www.alarmgrid.com. We also have plenty of videos on our YouTube channel, as well. And if you did enjoy this video, please like and subscribe.
