In addition, the Ademco Lynx wireless home security system supports as many as eight X-10 devices. X-10 is the international standard for wireless operation of a range of home appliances, and has been recognized as being among the most reliable such protocols for over thirty years. This advanced home security system also supports 5804WATCH, a remarkable device that permits operation of the wireless Ademco Lynx security system from a wristwatch – thus eliminating the need to carry a separate control device.
Parents especially will appreciate the Ademco Lynx’s sophisticated, yet user-friendly control features. In addition to an automated “Follow Me” alarm and voice reminders, this home security system provides full voice response, a family message center which members of the household can use in order to record and access voice messages, and the unique Ademco Paging feature, which provides spoken notifications whenever someone enters of leaves the building – making it much easier for parents to monitor their children’s whereabouts. However, the motion detector will ignore the movements of anything under 40 pounds – meaning that alarms and alerts will not be constantly activated by the movements of pets.
