The national security chains give you an "okay" touchpad. It works, we suppose. But, for what you are paying, wouldn't you prefer the latest models and coolest features? SHIELD Security Systems installs the Honeywell’s LYNX Touch 5210. In a few words, we create a more connected, protected home for you and your family by sharing this touchpad with you. Here are some of the best features that we are excited to share!lynx-touch-5210-c693e1-h900.jpg

Family Message Center

Did you have time to feed the dog? Or do you need to add some things to the grocery list? The Family Message Center lets everyone record and play back voice memos. This is a truly efficient way of communicating!

Home and Energy Management

Your system gives you the ability to control and automate all of the important features of a home: garage doors, lights, locks, water valves, etc. You can even use this feature on the go from your Wi-Fi enabled device. This is extremely helpful for when you need to randomize lights when you are away to deter burglars.

In-Home Video Viewing

Your full-color touchscreen provides video or surveillance viewing, but the best part of this is that you can also use this feature on your smartphone or other Wi-Fi enabled device. This is an excellent way to keep an eye on your family and home.

Remote Control from… ANYWHERE!

Controlling your security system is much easier now that you can do so on the go from your smartphone. You are able to view live video, receive notifications, arm and disarm your system. You can also get the weather forecast, news, and traffic sent right to your screen.

Garage Door Control

We have all left our garage door open… probably more than once. From your device, you are able to control the garage door and know if it is opened or closed from the home screen of your Wi-Fi enabled device with the Honeywell Total Connect application. You can also schedule it to close after a certain amount of time or at a specific time of day. The best part is that you can arm the system even if the garage for is open, which helps avoid false alarms.

Two-Way Voice

What better way to communicate with your system than talking to it? This system has a full voice response which tells you the system status and zone descriptions in a clear voice, and it also lets central station listen in and talk to you when they receive an alarm signal. This assures that the proper response personnel are dispatched if need be.

Night Stay/Arming

Are you staying home for the night? This feature arms pre-selected sensors inside of your home (for example, the basement or the main floor) while allowing you to move freely in other places.

Sunrise/Sunset Responses

Did you ever think a home security system would respond to the sunrise or sunset? This incredible feature allows the device to respond to the sun. For example, your system will automatically turn on lights at dusk and turn them back off at dawn, no matter what time of year it is. The system also automatically adjusts to daylight savings.

Full Color Touchscreen

This 4.3”, crystal clear, full-color display makes securing your home easier with graphics and menu driven prompts. The icons and words are much larger and easier to read, and there are two keys that are simply dedicated to be easy access in emergency situations.
