Honeywell L7000 – How to Install External Hardwired Siren?


hey everyone geoarm security here
today we’re going to show you how to hardwire the siren to the Honeywell L7000 wireless security system the first thing I want to do is go over
the honeywell 702 self-contained electronic siren and it basically comes
with a large siren it’s an external siren and you can see
these specifications on the back as well as some of the other information you’ll
see there are three wires there is a white a red and a yellow the white will
be the ground as it states here and then you have a decision you can go with red which will be warble
or a pulsing siren or yellow which will be a steady siren we’re going to go ahead and use the
wobble we seem to like that a little bit better and it will act as your positive
so white- RED + and what you want to do is in this application is you want to
make sure that the red and the white wire have enough length of wire reaching
back to where you’re going to be setting up the overall external hard wired siren
kit so that’s one thing to keep in mind as
we go through this moving along we are going to prepare the actual can and the
kit together to make everything a little bit more simple for you a little bit
more of a an applied application you will need access to some wire some
single strand wire black and red preferable and you will also need your
altronix relay which comes with the kit but just to reiterate the power supply
which comes with the kit and the first thing that I like to do of course is
print out the diagram that we have online will be very easy for you to
access that and follow along with what I’m doing the first step is you want to make sure
that you take your relays out of the box and you put the double-sided tape on and
clean the surface down of the actual can so when you stick these up you’ll get a
lot more usage out of them go ahead and peel the backs off of these
devices only when you’re ready to install now a key component is you want to make
sure that the trigger – is on the top and trigger positive is on the bottom
and I like to install this and i like to use this mounting holes a reference play
because you don’t want to mount over it because if you did that you wouldn’t be
able to hang this can on the wall when you’re finished I like to put it roughly about the same
level as the top of it of this mounting hole just like so and you don’t have to
completely firmly press it just yet and then you want to do the same with
your power supply go ahead and peel the backs off of the
sticky tape just like so and now you’re ready to
stick this up as well you want to make sure that the terminals
AC transformer DC input these are facing downwards towards the bottom of the box
and I like to line the top of the module up with the bottom of this Zettler area so you can go ahead and
mount it right about there alright so now we have those both
mounted inside the box you will need some wire strippers typically you’re going to want something
with a clamp at the end and you’ll need to be knees these are to tie wires together which
we’re going to be doing so you can put those to the side for now take out your
wire strippers keep those handy and if you take a look
at the first wire that we’re going to wire we’re going to take care of the
siren first we’re going to make sure that that happens first so we’re going to do is wire the trigger
positive comment and we’re going to tie that into the red wire of the speaker so
we will need one of these beans now go ahead and make sure that you have
a wire that is leading outside of the box where you can be the two wires
together and the end that’s going to get be need to make sure it’s got a little
extra copper so when you twist it you can get a gets better connection the
other end a little less copper exposed because that’s going to be going into
the relay and you’ll also need a little tiny phillips head screwdriver so if you follow the diagram again it’s
going to be trigger plus and we’re going to wire the comment out of the panel all right so go ahead and do that make
sure that this is a that the comment is loosened up a little bit so you can
slide the wire underneath hold it in while you screw it down now
make sure it is pretty tight you don’t want to strip the screw but you want a
good solid connection and this is going to run directly outside of the panel as
you can see I’m using the top of the box so that’s running through here and
you’re going to want to locate your positive your other positive wire and
we’re going to go ahead and twist these two wires together like so you’re going
to locate one of your beanies the open end go ahead and make sure these get
inserted pretty deeply into the beanie and use the top of your wire strippers
here while holding in and go ahead and close down and be careful not to pinch
your fingers you don’t have to do it too hard but I
like to just go all the way up the connector just to make sure it has a
solid grasp of the wires so you never have to worry about any connection
issues now we have that part all wired up so
the positive is taken care of the next what we’re going to do is we want to run
be DC – and we’re going to connect the three wires into the actual 702 siren so with your Phillips head screwdriver
you’re going to locate the DC – which is right here unscrew that terminal just enough so you
can get this small end and remember on these ends not leading out of the box
you want a little less copper exposed you’re going to slide that into its
terminal go ahead and close it up again pretty tight you want to make sure you
never have to worry about its connection this end will be running outside of the
box here and next we’re going to leave that there temporarily that’s one of the three wires we’re
going to wire the trigger positive negative negative – and that’s going to
be a black wire as well you’re going to insert the end with the least amount of
copper as opposed to the one with the longer end which will come out the top
of the panel and you’re going to insert that end into the back of negative of
the trigger positive negative terminal screw that down as tight as you can just don’t overdo it the other end will
run outside of the panel now you’re going to take these three wires
including the negative wire of the actual siren and you’re going to tie
them all together make sure they all have a connection once you have them twist it all together like so locate
your beanie insert those wires into the beanie protecting the wire and you want
to take your strippers here and go ahead and clamp down the wires holding them
into place very simple like so for this next part you will need to transformer
that comes with the actual siren kit on our web page and the flathead
screwdriver and you’ll see what I have a black and a red end and I want to insert
one end into each one of these terminals doesn’t matter about polarity on this
one so either terminal work fine just make sure that you secure each one down
very good so it doesn’t have as good of a chance
to come out at all screw it down make sure it’s tight do
the same for the other end like so and make sure that that snug you can take this part put it to the
side and you want to get the other edge of the wire of course with the long enough distance
from where you want to plug it in and you’re going to run it through the
bottom of the hole the bottom hole right here and we’re going to wire it into
these far left terminals and again there’s no polarity so I like to just unscrew them just a
little bit each go ahead and insert one end into the right side try not to let any copper get exposed just as a precaution screw it down nice
and tight and do the same for the other terminal all right pull it tight make sure it’s
good all right and now we have the
transformer wired to the power supply also you’ll see the battery the backup
battery leads coming from the power supply we won’t have to worry about that until
the end the next step in our installation we’re going to take our red
wire run it from DC outlet positive into the trigger positive and know and that’s
very simple both edge both edges of these wires you
want the least amount of copper exposed and just enough distance for it to for
them to reach each other doesn’t matter which way you go first I’ll just go
ahead and start from this direction i’ll do the relay first screw it down into
the n.o terminal and then the other edge will go into the DC output positive like
so screw that down so you do have again and no going to DC
positive and that’s going to be the most difficult part is up to this point as
far as getting this all wired up correctly now you’re going to need to jumper wires
you know these will only need to be cut to the length of the actual size of the
relay so maybe a little bit over two inches and you’ll see the jumpers are
here and here we’ll go ahead and do the trigger – positive to the trigger
positive on the bottom so that’s this terminal here you want to go ahead and run part of the
jumper from this terminal into the bottom left terminal here unscrew it slide it in and you can screw
it down now so you got one of the jumpers in there
correctly again make sure it’s on the pot the trigger – positive plus and the
trigger positive terminal now we’re going to go ahead and do our red jumper
which again is from trigger – positive + down to the n.o terminal I’ll go ahead and wire the n.o first so go ahead and insert that like so and
this one is going to run into the positive + as well on the trigger – so
I’m screw this terminal just enough to slide this wire in and go ahead and
screw that one down securing both of those wires into their into the positive
plus you have both of your jumpers installed now so we’re looking to live
here there’s not too much left in our installation before we move on you can just make sure that the wires
are long enough reaching from the siren that will allow you to tuck them in
after so tuck in all the wires like so that way aesthetically when you close
the box you won’t see anything but the wires
heading out the top and the bottom so that’s a nice clean install now we’re
going to go ahead and show you how to how to link the l7000 wireless security
system into the external hard wired siren kit the first thing that we’re going to want
to do with this lynx touch L7000 is to power it down so we can wire it we’re going to need some more 22 gauge
by two wire one end with a little less a conduit exposed and a little less copper and on the
other end we’re going to want a little bit more of the conduit exposed to give
you a little flexibility this end is going to go into the external hard wired
siren and this end we’re going to install into the l7000 so
we’re going to go ahead and power down the system by turning the system on its
side depressing the two tabs unplugging the backup battery like so as well as
you’re either your LT-cable or your power transformer wire and now we’re
going to take the 22 gauge by two wire that we have cut long enough to reach
from the panel to your external hard wired siren kit you’re going to run this
edge of the wire through the back mounting plate of the LYNXl7000 you’ll need your Phillips head screwdriver and you’re going to be working with t RI g
and gND these two terminals these if you have your power transformer wire
you’d leave them there there’s an extra ground here that we’re
going to use and trigger is going to receive the red wire go ahead and screw that in and then the
black will get the gnd so you can move that to the side and you’re going to bring in your
hardwired siren kit now with the other end of that wire that we have coming
from the back of the L7000 you’re going to run it in the side knock out of this
external hardwire box so you’re going to be working with this
red wire go ahead and install that and then you
go ahead and screw it down the other edge of the black wire is going to go
into negative you can go ahead and seal it up and now
we are going to power up the alarm panel and the external hard wired siren and go
into programming so you can insert the backup battery
into its director terminal as well as the power transformer wire or your LT
cable you can see what the panel to this point and i’m going to plug in the
transformer wire the power transformer for the external hardwire siren kit now that this system is ready go ahead
and hold down the home key for three seconds on the l7000 go ahead and select
security more tools 4112 is the installer code go ahead and select rules highlight the
first available rule select edit type you’re going to enable to trigger output
action permanent on start system operation any burglar alarm and stop
system operation bell time out select save and you can
back out alright so now this should be ready to
go I have a key fob hooked up to it with
the panic button ready to go which we do have a video on
on how to program this 5830 four – four en just take a look at our YouTube page
and you can either activate this to test by trip you know arming your system up
and tripping a sensor that’s on perimeter instant or you can hold down
this button for five seconds which will enable panic features if you want to go
this route you’re going to have to make sure that
the that the audible siren is attached to this police which we do to double
check that go to security more tools for 112 then you want to go to program zones and
you’re going to scroll all the way down to the last available zone which is
police select edit and you want to make the response type is at 24 off 24-hour
audible save now you can back out allow yourself back into programming and
now if you wanted to you could hold down the panic features and select police
which will activate the siren since it’s so loud i’m going to go ahead
and use the key fob Wow and as you can see that’s extremely loud
and well worth the time and that’s how you install the external hard wired

  1. I bought the kit and wired it up. Why is it as soon as I connect the AC power or D.C. Battery the siren sounds even without alarm going off?

  2. Excellent educational video. I worked for ADT for ten years and never learned how to correctly hook up a trigger module.
