The sleek touchscreen of the LYNX Touch – the largest in the security industry – features large, clear, easy-to-read icons and menu-driven prompts that walk both homeowners and installers through operation and configuration. The simplified interface also reduces the time needed to train end users to operate the system. Additionally, using Honeywell’s 5800-Z-Wave Bridge to connect to devices that communicate via the Z-Wave protocol, LYNX Touch can set-or change thermostats or turn off lights when the system is armed.
“Advances in the consumer electronics, mobile computing and home automation markets are significantly shaping end-users’ expectations of security systems,” said Jonathan Klinger, vice president of marketing for Honeywell Security & Communications. “The new LYNX product line provides dealers with a rich and comprehensive offering to meet the needs of the broadest range of prospects in the security industry today.”
Other prominent LYNX Touch features include two-way voice over GSM radio, which makes the device ideal for cell phone-only homes or VoIP households that don’t use standard telephone landlines. Additionally, LYNX Touch is compatible with Honeywell’s Total Connect Remote Services, the company’s flagship remote home monitoring system that allows homeowners to access and manage their security systems from web-enabled devices including personal computers, smartphones and tablets. With Total Connect, homeowners can receive important alerts, view live streaming video, receive video event clips and control their systems remotely.
LYNX Touch also includes a Family Message Center that allows household members to record and playback voice messages for one another. The system can also be used as a convenient, hands-free speakerphone.
