Honeywell L5200: How to Reset the Installer Code?
This video will show you how to reset the installer code on the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system. To reset your installer code on the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 system power down your panel by unplugging the 300-04705 along with the alarm backup battery. Once this is completed power your system back up by plugging back in your 300-04705 transformer and your alarm backup battery. The panel will begin its booting process with a white screen once you get to the standby screen hold the push home button for 3 seconds, select security, arm stay, clear 00, program, installer code, clear, input the 4 digit code of your choice, done, return button, select yes to allow yourself back into programming.
The installer code is the code that will allow you to make changes on your alarm panel. For example if you need to change a door/window contact from instant perimeter to a entry exit delay you would need your installer code to access that area. The code is also used to activate professional alarm monitoring and activating the communication modules.
The factory reset of the installer code is needed when a person in the programming menu exits out and doesn't select that they would like the installer to re-enter programming or if the end user ends up forgetting the installer code they have changed it to. By default the installer code is 4112. As a note the installer code does not have to be changed it can be left at default because if the alarm system is not armed with that code it will not be able to disarm the system. As for the master code that should be changed as it can be used to arm and disarm the system even if it was not the code used originally and it is used to change alternate user codes as well.
The Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system has been discontinued by Honeywell and will no longer produce these alarm panels. The L5200 has been replaced by the Honeywell L5210 wireless security system the link to the new system has been placed below.
