A new feature of the Honeywell LYNX L5200 and L7000 system

It has been a few weeks since we have said our goodbyes to the Honeywell LYNX L5100 system so we feel this is a good time to inform our readers about an awesome new feature that the 5200 and 7000 system’s bring to the table that the previous LYNX system’s couldn’t.
NIGHT-STAY Mode: Arms Perimeter Only, Plus Selected Zones
• Use NIGHT-STAY mode to provide increased security while staying inside.
• Arms same as STAY mode, but also arms pre selected interior sensors (programmed
by your installer), while other interior sensors are left disarmed.
• Persons entering later can enter through an entry/exit door but they must disarm
the system and must not violate any of the programmed interior zones to avoid
sounding an alarm.
• IMPORTANT: When NIGHT-STAY mode is on, the selected interior zones are
armed and cause an alarm if anyone enters those areas (e.g., waking in the middle
of the night). To avoid sounding an alarm, you must disarm the system before any
activity takes place in those interior zones.

The Honeywell L5100 wireless security system has been discontinued

They say nothing lasts forever, well in this case its absolutely true. They Honeywell LYNX L5100 wireless security system has seen its final day. Honeywell has discontinued the manufacturing of the system for good. If you can remember there was a system released prior to the 5100 system known as the L5000 wireless system. Though the 5000 panel meant well there were quite a few knocks on the panel. The 5000 system had issues with the touchscreen calibration making it difficult for the consumer to navigate the interface, there were also hardware and software issues that would at times leave the system unusable. Then there was the release of the L5100 system which not only fixed the errors of the previous system but,  also changed the future of wireless security technology by adding the Honeywell L5100 Z-wave wireless home automation module. With this being said Geoarm security wishes the L5100 system a fond farewell.

How to wire a Tg1 universal communicator

  • Push the two indentations on the bottom of the communicator with a tiny flat head screwdriver.
  •  Once communicator face plate is lifted off look on the bottom left of the communicator you should see 5 pins sticking up.
  •  Locate the blue bus that comes in the plastic rappers out of the box
  •   Looking at the front of the bus all the way to the right is your power “red” and to the immediate left of the power will be the area for the ground “black” to be wired.
  •   Run the wires through the back of the communicator and wire the power into its designated slot as well as the ground.
  •   Slide the bus onto the 5 pins again making sure the power is all the way to the right and the ground right next to it on the left.
  •  Run the phone cable through the back as well and make sure it slides into its designated area until it clicks
  •  Screw in the antenna and you all set!
