LYNX Touch’s touchscreen features large, easy-to-read icons and menu-driven prompts that walk both homeowners and installers through operation and configuration processes. Additionally, using Honeywell’s 5800-Z-Wave Bridge to connect to devices that communicate via the Z-Wave protocol, LYNX Touch can set-back 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. “The new LYNX product line provides dealers with the richest, most 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, and compatibility 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.
