Honeywell Lynx Touch L5210 Unboxing Alarm System Store


Hi, everyone. Andy here with alarmsystemstore.com, and today,
we’re going to unbox and review the Honeywell Lynx Touch L5210. We’ll show you various kits that we offer
this system in and tell you a little bit about it. So, we’ll head over to the table now and take
a look. Okay, this is the Lynx Touch L5210 Wireless
Alarm System from Honeywell Security. And I’m going to show you what you get in
the box. This is what we refer to on our website as
a Kit 1, and everything in the Kit 1 comes in this box. We do include with all of our kits four warning
decal stickers, and those are generally not in a box. Sometimes they shove them in the side flap. But nonetheless, it will include four of the
warning decals. Everything else for the Kit 1 does come in
the box. And I should mention that all of the other
kits, we currently offer four, all of the other kits are based off of this. So they start from this and they just add
other sensors, and remotes and things, and I’ll show you those here shortly. Also, I should mention everything we sell
is factory fresh. We order directly from the manufacturer distribution
center and we order every week. So it’s gonna have the latest firmware in
it, and that’s a question we sometimes get. And that can be important because sometimes
newer modules are only compatible with newer firmware. So, this is what you get in the box. Of course, you get a programming guide. We do also have a number of support documents
on our website if you want to check that out. A lot of people find, you know, are what we
call QuickStart guides, much simpler to follow because they’re kind of a step-by-step rather
than just a manual that has all of the information in it that you might have to kind of dig for. So definitely, check out the website. We’ve also got other videos on this system
and many others, but we have a how-to-program this system, how to add and edit user codes,
you know, how to read the troubles if you have any trouble conditions. This is one of the easiest systems available. So most people aren’t going to have a problem
with setting this system up anyway. But, you know, if you wanna further simplify
it, certainly, take a look at the resources we have on the website. The main console features a 4.3-inch color
touch screen, has a built-in 85-decibel siren. You can add additional wireless sirens to
this system as well. The part number for that is 5800 wave. Features up to 64 wireless zones, 16 wireless
remotes, and up to 32 user codes. So as you can see, that’s quite a bit of capability
in such a small package. And that’s why, you know, it’s a satisfactory
system for a…just about any home or small business. Rarely do I see people go over 64 zones or
need more than 32 different user codes for a small business even. This also has a family message center, which
allows you to leave a voice message. And then, the person that comes in that disarms
the system can see that there’s a message there and playback your message. It’s kind of a neat feature, you know, and
kind of replaces the old note on the fridge, I guess you would say. The system does voice announce all system
status and zone statuses. So if you have a trouble condition, it’ll
tell you verbally what the trouble condition is, and it’ll announce zone statuses also. So I think that’s the basics on the main console
here. There are a couple inputs. I’m not gonna take the cover off this to show
you, but there is a connection where you’re going to connect your power supply to it. That hardwired zone connection, if you choose
to use it, is in there. Not sure if you can see those little terminals
in there. And there’s also connections for a phone line
if you wanna hook a phone line into it. There are a few accessory modules that are
popular with this system. One of which is a z-wave module that gives
capability of controlling or scheduling z-wave devices for home automation. The part number for that is an L5100 z-wave. There is a cellular card you can get for this
if you’re gonna use for Central Station monitoring. That’s a 3GL. And similarly, there is a Wi-Fi card that
you can put in it if you wanna report to a Central Station over Wi-Fi, and that is called
L5100 Wi-Fi. Okay, that’s it for the main console. Of course, you will get a hardware pack with
that, anchors and screws to mount the console. Next up is the 9-volt power supply. This system does not include any wire, so
you will need a wire for this. The spec on it is 18 gauge 2 conductor. it’s what’s recommended. It is polarity sensitive, so there’s a positive
here and a negative, and that’s…you’ll follow the same thing that you wire into on the back
of the control board there. We do offer short sections of wire, so you
don’t have to buy a whole spool of wire. It normally comes in 500-foot rolls. But we have the wire you need for this in
25 feet and 50-foot rolls. So you may want to purchase that as well when
you purchase your system so that you’ll have that wire. Anyway, you wire that up and you just plug
it in. And it is low-voltage, like I said, 9 volts
DC. Includes the backup battery. The backup battery is rated to last four hours. And this plastic piece here just covers…basically,
once you once you open up the back of the unit, this battery fits in there and this
secures it in place. And again, we have another video, I know,
on this system that shows terminal connections. So if you’ve got questions on that, you can
check that out. So next up, I’ll show you the other kits. Again, this is a Kit 1 and that is everything
that comes with a Kit 1. So now, we’ll move along to what’s included
in a Kit 2. Okay, the Kit 2 includes two of these 5816
wireless door/window transmitters. I’ll get this out and show it to you, what
comes in that. So you get with that the transmitter, double-sided
tape for mounting it. And then, of course, screws to mount the transmitter,
and the magnet. And of course, you get a spacer and the battery. And how these work are, the magnet portion
is what goes on the moving part, typically your door or window, and then this transmitter
goes on the frame or door jam. And these just have to line up. They can be oriented a little differently. That’s not so important. But they line up together, and then, when
the doors opened, this is what triggers the alarm. But anyway, on the Kit 2, you’ll get two of
these. And then, you’ll also get one 5800PIR-res
wireless motion sensor. And I’ll show you that briefly. This wireless motion sensor is pet-immune. So if you have a small cat or dog, it’ll handle
it. It’s rated up to 80 pounds. I probably wouldn’t push that far. But certainly, you know, any small pets, it’ll
be fine with. But yeah, it is rated up to 80 pounds, so
I wouldn’t put it in with an area where you’re gonna have a German Shepard or a large dog
running around. But, anyway, this is the wireless motion sensor. It comes with a battery. I should mention, by the way, on the transmitters,
on a typical installation, those last typically three years, and I would say about the same
on the motion. Now, of course, it depends on like a door,
how often it’s opened. But in a typical residential, certainly, three
to four years is typical from what I have seen anyway. And again, similar time on the wireless motion
as well. The range on this wireless motion is up to
35 by 40 feet. So it will certainly cover most residential-size
rooms. And by the way, they rate on this motion battery
life up to five years. But typicals, you know, probably somewhere
between three and five. So, again, on a Kit 2, you get two of these
door/window transmitters, one wireless motion. Now, when you go up to the kit three, it adds
a key-chain remote. And I’ll show you that as well. It’s a four-button remote. And now, you can, of course, disarm from the
keypad on the touch screen. But if you don’t wanna use that, you can buy
these remotes. Four-button key-chain remote for arming, disarming. And there’s two kinds of arming modes. Staying away, typically…stay mode usually
disarms the motion but arms your perimeter, but…So that is a kit three. The Kit 4 is identical to this except for
it adds a third 5816 wireless transmitter. So the Kit 4 is going to have three of these,
one wireless motion, and one key-chain remote. And remember, you could have up to 64 wireless
zones and up to 16 wireless keychain remotes. And Honeywell does offer a large variety of
wireless sensors. Everything from ultra-thin, thin line series
for door or window. They’ve also got recessed ones. They probably got one of the larger varieties
of wireless sensors and accessories on the market. So check it out on the website. Again, these are the ones that come in our
kits. But a lot of people start with Kit 1 and,
you know, build their own out if they want to use some of the smaller transmitters. This is the bulkier of their transmitters. But like I said, you can get smaller thin-line
ones or recessed ones. There’s just a variety of them available. So that’s it. Okay, that concludes my video for the unboxing
and review of the Honeywell Lynx Touch L5210 Wireless Alarm System. It’s a good choice for a home or a small business
