MELVILLE, N.Y., June 9, 2014 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced a new all-in-one system that allows dealers to offer an enhanced user experience while reducing costs– the LYNX Touch 5200. Consumers can now view live, IP video on-demand directly on the panel’s 4.7-inch vivid color touchscreen. In addition to two-way voice over GSM, LYNX Touch 5200 offers two-way voice over Wi-Fi®—an industry first that dramatically streamlines the installation process, saves money and time and provides greater options for connectivity.
“Incorporating video right on the touchscreen helps dealers elevate their connected home offering and provide an unrivaled user experience—right out of the box,” said Robert Puric, marketing director, Honeywell Security Products Americas. “By delivering integrated, economical, on-demand video—along with innovations like two-way voice over Wi-Fi—LYNX Touch 5200 truly takes the all-in-one system to the next level.”
The unit supports single-camera viewing when used with Honeywell Total Connect™ Video products: the iPCAM-PT, iPCAM-WO, iPCAM-WI2/B and ACU. With the exclusive Honeywell LYNX Connect app, users can also view live video feeds and control their systems from an iOS or Android device anywhere on premises, even without a Honeywell Total Connect account.
