How to make your Honeywell Lynx Touch call you directly for alarms or other events.

Back To Main

Hi. I'm Jason with And in today's video, I'm going to show you how to enter in your own phone number for self-monitoring on the Lynx L5210. So let's go to the table, and we'll get started.

All right. So the nice thing about the 5210 is that it's pretty easy to set it up to self-monitor through your phone line. So, to do that, we'll go into programming. So security, more, tools, the installer code, and then program. Then we're going to go to the button that says, reporter. Now, you can actually use up to two phone numbers here. So, you'll select follow me phone one, or follow me phone two. So we'll start with phone one. And then it shows phone type. So you wanna tap that, and it shows phone type follow me. So that's what we want. And then phone number, you'll tap there, and you'll just enter the phone number as if you're dialing it from your house, or wherever this L5210 is gonna be placed. So, maybe your gonna put in your cell number. So you wanna enter it exactly how you dial it. So...obviously, that's not a real number, but that's what we're gonna use for example. And then you'll hit done. So there, our phone number's in place.

So then, you wanna choose what the system's going to report to you. If you want it to report all, you can just press this, and then that automatically enables all four areas. Or you can, you know, maybe you don't want to test to be reported. Maybe you don't want troubles to be reported. Or maybe more commonly, maybe you don't want the open-close, so this arm-disarms.

So, currently, we have it set so alarms and trouble will be reported, but arms-disarms and test will not be. So once you have it set however you want, you'll push save, and that's all there is to it. You can then go through and do it for the second one, or if you wanna make changes to the first, you can do that. So then, you'll just go back out, again, always remember to hit, "yes" there. And now the systems ready to call directly to your phone.

So that's all there is to programming in your phone number, so you can do some basic self-monitoring with the L5210. We have a lot of resources on our website if you wanna go there. As well as, of course, the equipment itself if you need it, and we have our phone number up on the screen if you need to give us a call, we will be glad to help you out. Thanks, and we'll see you in the next video.
