Honeywell Security Group has introduced new mobile apps for its LYNX Touch 5100 self-contained security system.
The new L5100 Connect iOS app allows homeowners to control the system anywhere on premises within their Wi-Fi coverage areas on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app provides local control of the security system, and if so equipped, control of Z-Wave enabled lights, locks, thermostats and more. This approach helps homeowners save money on energy and utility bills, conserve resources and live a more comfortable, efficient lifestyle, the company says.
For dealers, the company recently released a free demo app for both iOS and Android platforms, which works on compatible tablets and smartphones and allows dealers to demonstrate the product’s security, home automation and tornado warning functions to prospective customers anytime, anywhere – without the need for a physical key pad or demo case.
Homeowners can download the new iOS app for local control from Apple’s iTunes Store for a one-time fee of $9.99.
In addition to security, the LYNX Touch wireless, self-contained system gives homeowners control of Z-Wave-enabled home automation systems such as lighting, locks, thermostats and garage doors. It also now features push content via Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services for weather, traffic and news. The system features a bright, full-color touchscreen display with intuitive prompts and graphic icons. It offers Wi-Fi, as well as an alarm radio that can communicate via 4G network.
