This video shows you how to Install the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator into the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system?

To install the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator turn your alarm panel on its side, depress the two tabs on top of the 4.7 inch touchscreen display, make sure your L5200 system is powered down by removing either the LT-CABLE or the power transformer wire, unplug backup alarm battery. Now that there is no power remove the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G from its box, locate the chip labeled L5000/GSM. With the circuit board of the GSMVLP5-4G facing you insert the end of the chip that reads GSM and slide it into the actual female port of the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G, now line up the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G with the L5000 end of the chip exposed, insert the chip reading L5000 into the actual female port located directly on the Honeywell L5200 system, all of the three screw holes should be ready to be mounted. With a phillp head screwdriver twist down all three screws securing the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G to the Honeywell L5200 wireless security system. Locate the white sticker which should be facing you and write down the MAC and MAC CRC of the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G so that we can activate your cellular communicator for professional cellular alarm monitoring. 

Honeywell's IntelliPath series communicators provide reliable coverage by automatically choosing the best signal in the area whether 2G, 3G or 4G and self-adjusting as necessary. The following wireless communication protocols are supported: HSPA+ (4G) HSPA (HSDPA & HSUPA) (3G) EDGE (2G) GPRS (2G). This communicator provides full data reporting and uploading/downloading with most Honeywell control panels.

When deciding to add the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator you will have access to key features on the LYNX Touch wireless security systems. When activating the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G you will have the availability to have Honeywell’s AlarmNet Total Connect 2.0 interactive alarm monitoring services. This is where you can remotely control your security system from a smart device. Features such as, arm/disarm; receive notifications, control user profiles and user codes. The Total Connect application is quite extensive as far as how custom you can make it. You can control what notifications you want to receive and also what notifications you would not like to receive.

When you use the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator in parallel with the Honeywell L5100-ZWAVE card you open the doors to home automation control right from the palm of your hand. Install z-wave door locks, light modules, garage door controllers and thermostats. Setup direct rules and scenes that tailor to your specific needs for example let’s say you have a z-wave door lock and a ZWSTAT thermostat attached to your system. From your smart phone you can select a custom scene that says arrive home. When you decide to click arrive home scene your front door can unlock and your AC can lower the temperature of your liking simultaneously. That is an example of a very basic home automation scene you can have the rules you can apply can be much more expansive.

The Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator is probably the most important addition to your DIY home or business security system that you can have. The reason being is when you decide to go with a Phone line or internet monitored security system you run the risk of having your security system rendered if the power or phone cables are cut from the outside of the location. When you add the Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G Cellular communicator to your alarm system it can be powered off of the alarm back up battery for 4-6 hours even if the power goes out or someone cuts the phone line or internet cables. You can even add a higher capacity backup battery to your system giving it up to 24 hours of backup battery time giving you even more protection. 

If you are looking for the most reliable communication path to the central station you should consider using dual path alarm monitoring services. This will require you to have both the L5100-WIFI Card and the GSMVLP5-4G cellular communicator. By default the alarm system will only allow you to have internet as the primary communication path and the cellular card as the backup communication path. 
 The Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system has been discontinued by Honeywell and will no longer produce these alarm panels. The L5200 has been replaced by the Honeywell L5210 wireless security system the link to the new system has been placed above.
