Lynx touch, cant find anything on it??

I bought a Lynx security system on ebay and it looks just like an L5100. But, the model on the back says LYNXTOUCH1 just like that. The person I bought it from does not know the installer code and alarmgrid made showing the backdoor method to get into programming but it will not work for me... I can't program this thing without an installer code!!!

Has anybody heard of this model or know a way I can get into programming?

Another thing i read was i'd have to get a monitoring company to change my installer code. Is that true?

Lynxtouch1 is just one of the marketing names for the Lynxtouch.

The Alarmgrid video is accurate, but it's easy to miss a step or wait a little too long. However, this model is unique in the Honeywell line in NOT having a hardware "backdoor" if the installer code is not the factory default.

Ahhh. That's great. So can a monitoring company change the installer code for me?

If the original installer didn't change the download access code, someone with the download software could connect to the panel and change it.
