Honeywell releases enhanced LYNXR-I wireless control panel

Designed with the future in mind, delivers enhanced support to Honeywell family of communicators


MELVILLE, N.Y., April 2, 2008 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today released an enhanced version of the LYNXR-I Wireless Control Panel. The latest addition to Honeywell's popular LYNX quick-install family of controls, the sophisticated new LYNXR-I is a combination wireless control, keypad and siren that has been enhanced to support the Honeywell family of GSM/Internet communicators, including the 7845i and 7845GSM.

When used with Honeywell's Total Connect remote services, LYNXR-I lets customers control their security systems, receive important alerts and stay connected to their homes and businesses from any remote location via the Internet, cell phones, PDAs or any web-enabled device. It's also an excellent opportunity for dealers to increase recurring monthly revenue (RMR).

LYNXR-1 features include compatibility with all 5800 Series devices and built-in two-way voice, which adds another opportunity for RMR by letting central station operators communicate with homeowners in the event of an emergency. Other key features include voice prompts, a built-in message center, reminders, “Follow Me” and scheduling.

LYNXR-I is highly flexible and can be mounted on walls or placed on tabletops. The quick-install device contains voice prompts to walk dealers through the installation process—reducing time and training costs. Additionally, installing a GSM radio or Internet communicator is easier with the GSML and 7847i-L modules, which install inside the same plastic case as the LYNXR-I with no additional enclosures to mount.
