This video will show you how to DIY Install the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 wireless security system.

In this day and age things seem to be changing in the home and business security world. In the past when one would be looking to get home or business security they would call a security company to come out to their location to install the security system because, they were so complex and tedious to install. That is not the case anymore, security manufacturers such as Honeywell have created wireless security systems that are extremely user friendly. A perfect example is the all new Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 wireless security system. 

Upon receiving your wireless system you may be asking what I need to do before my tech appointment for activation of professional alarm monitoring.

The first step is to organize all of the various items in the box. Take your alarm panel, backup battery, transformer, communicator's and put them to the side, we will be working with this first. Next, look for all of your security sensors such as door/window contacts, motion detectors, glass break sensors, panic buttons, key transmitters etc... And pair all similar devices together.

Once this is completed you can take your Honeywell L5210 wireless security panel out of its packaging "make sure when opening any of the manufacturer's packaging you keep everything in excellent condition in case you need to return".

On the top of the Honeywell L5210 panel you will notice two depressions, go ahead and depress both of those tabs with your finger or gently with a flat head screwdriver. Now you should see the insides of the alarm panel. Locate the power transformer inside of the original box, if you have the LT-Cable go ahead and wire that and make sure that the red wire lead goes to the + end of the transformer and the black wire goes to the - end than go ahead and plug in the male end of the cable to the female port in the panel "do not plug in the transformer to 110 outlet yet". Follow the same instructions as above if you are using 22 gauge by 2 wire and wire the opposite end to the GND and 9 Volt terminal with 9 Volt receiving the red wire and the GND port receiving the black wire again once completed do not plug transformer into 110 outlet yet!

After the transformer is wired up you will want to mount your backup battery into its designated area located on the actual back mounting plate above the circuits of the system. Make sure to follow the instructions of the video above and do not plug in the backup battery until you are ready to power up your panel.

If you have purchased a Honeywell L5210 internet or dual path alarm system go ahead and install all of these devices and make sure to get the MAC and MAC CRC off of all of them because your technician will need these numbers to activate communications. At this time you can plug in your backup battery seal the panel and plug in your power transformer to the 100 outlet giving your DIY system power. Put all of your original packaging in an area where it will not get damaged. 

Lastly, you have two options when it comes to programming wireless sensors into your alarm panel. You can either use our DIY How to videos to program sensors, or you can write down the serial numbers of each individual device; assign them a specific zone number. Make sure that you start with zone two because that is the first available wireless zone as zone one is dedicated to one external hardwired sensor. Key fobs you can write down last and you won’t need to assign them a zone because the Honeywell L5210 system has specific areas where they are programmed.

Now that you have power to your Honeywell L5210 DIY wireless security system and all of your serial numbers organized to specific zones you are all set and ready for your tech appointment to activate and test your alarm system.
