hey di wires I'm George from alarm grid today I'm going to be showing you guys how you can monitor and control the temperature on your lynx 52:10 now for today's demonstration we don't actually have a lynx 52:10 up on our wall but we do have the l7000 which is exactly the same as the l5210 the only difference is the screen size the l5210 has a smaller screen that is the only difference between both systems so anything you see me do today on the l7000 is gonna be exactly the same that you do on your l5210 now the first thing we need to make sure is if you're looking to monitor and control your thermostat from your panel you first need to have a z-wave thermostat right so as long as it has the z-wave include and exclude you're perfectly okay to use it and then the second thing you need to have is a z-wave module for your l50 for your l5210 now the z-wave module is not something that comes with the system it's something that you buy separately I think it's somewhere around twenty thirty bucks maybe you can find it online anywhere we have it on our site as well but basically you buy it you install it while the system is powered down I have mine already installed in the panel I'll show you guys in a second where it goes and then after you have the z-wave module in there and after you have a z-wave thermostat in your house then you can actually monitor and change the temperature up down whatever you guys want to do create scenes create rules you can actually do all of that through the l5210 and if you have the l5210 monitored you can use Total Connect and if you have automation enabled on Total Connect you can also create the scenes through the Total Connect application from your phone and you can control the temperature from the application on your phone or website as well now let me go ahead and open the panel up and I'm going to show you guys exactly where it goes installed so to open the system up there's two tabs at the very top right and left of the system you're gonna need something sturdy today I'm gonna use this small little flathead if you don't have any tools you can always use a key something metal something that's sturdy and there's two little plastic latches at the top that you just push down and you pop each side open so I'm gonna go ahead pop my right side first the panel will start beeping letting me know that there's a cover tamper if you just tap a button to quiet it down it should stop beeping so that it doesn't bother you guys and then the second one is always the hardest one to pop there we go so now that I swing it down now my cellular communicator is actually in the way of the z-wave module but you see how right here on the right hand side the Wi-Fi module if you if you're looking at it swung open and swung down the Wi-Fi modules on the right hand side the elf the z-wave module is plugged in on the left-hand side over here the same way that this is plugged into this little board right here the z-wave module has the same attachment but you can't see it because this cellular module the 3gl module is in the way but that's where the z-wave module would go and it just plugs directly into the side and again you want to make sure when you're doing this you power the system completely down so to do that you unplug the backup battery right here this little plastic latch right here and then if you guys have an LT cable or if you guys have it hardwired for power on in these two terminals you just um you unplug it from the wall I wouldn't I recommend on wiring from there if you have the live wires because you can fry your system or possibly get a small little electrocuted but it's always easier if you have the LT cable if you have them spliced in you just have to unplug it from the wall and again that's what you're gonna do to install the z-wave module all right I'm gonna go ahead and shut the system back up it should just click into place and if you guys did install it and are getting a cover tamper you just press the home button two times and you just disarm the system after you've closed the cover you have to do that twice remember and then the cover tamper will go away I'm still getting a low battery but my cover tamper no longer shows so once you have your z-wave module installed you have your z-wave thermostat you gotta first exclude any devices so this is just good practice when it comes to any z-wave devices you always want to exclude them first remember these are factory tested and they may not have been cleared when they were tested so you always want to make sure you delete any programming or you may find yourself having issues so after you've excluded it then you can include it and then you can mess around with it now I already have mine already included into my system so I'm just gonna show you guys real quick how I can actually turn up and turn out the temperature in the office so you're gonna want to go to automation and I'm just gonna go to thermostats you see mine right now I just have it a normal thermostat 230 that's the default name that was given to it when I click on it it takes you to all the - all the modes you can set it to cool you can turn it off you can set it to heat I'm gonna set mine to cool you can move the temperature down you can move the temperature up you can set it to the fan to auto just to on circulate again it all depends on the kind of AC AC system HVAC system that you have and there's a couple of other options you can play with I'm just gonna leave mine like this for now you can hit the back arrow key you can even go in as far as creating scenes and you can even create rules so you can make a scene that it turns the temperature down to let's say or turns the temperature to 78 and then the rule would be when you arm away turn the temperature 78 you can make another one that set the temperature to 71 and set the rule to when you disarm when you get home it turns down the temperature to 71 which is the scene so there's a lot of different things that you can play around with it's a lot easier if you guys are using the Total Connect app and automation to set the scenes as there's an actual wizard that walks you through every setup so it's a lot easier doing it that way but yeah I just wanted to show you guys a quick video on how to control and monitor your thermostats through your z-wave thermostat through an L 52 or in our case the l7000 today it's the exact same process if you guys have any questions at all feel free to email us to support at alarm grid comm if you found the video helpful make sure
