Honeywell is a Fortune 100 company that employs over 3000 people across Canada and approximately 132,000 employees worldwide. Its no secret that they are a big company. However today I will be reviewing their L7000 Lynx Touch Wireless Alarm Kit because its one of their most popular products. Here’s the pros and cons associated with their alarm system.

Honeywell Pro’s

The Honeywell L7000 Lynx Touch Wireless Alarm Kit is not the typical DIY system but it works very well. It’s known for being a pro grade system that is quite reliable and easy to use once it has been installed. Most people that have this system hardly ever complain about its functionality because it really does get the job done.

Honeywell Cons

Many people complain that it unfortunately takes you hours to program this system when you add a new device. This can be a bit of headache for those of us that are not very tech savvy. I’ve also heard of an extreme case where it took someone a week to install it with 21 sensors (spending about 3 to 4 hours a day on it). I guess it’s the only time when its ok to hire a professional installer to help you out…or be willing to put a little effort into installing it yourself.

Don’t expect to receive any support from Honeywell since they only provide tech support to dealers. If you have any issues, they’ll direct you to one of their authorized alarm installers which can be a bit frustrating sometimes.

CONCLUSION

I would only recommend this alarm system to people who have experience with installing other systems because it takes a long time to install it yourself. If you don’t have much experience with that, you would be better of going with reputable companies like Scout Alarm, SmartThings, and Frontpoint. However, if you’ve made up your mind that this is the right system for you…I would suggest taking advantage of these Honywell deals on Amazon.
