MELVILLE, N.Y.—Honeywell this week announced the release of the LYNX Touch 7000, a self-contained security and control system for homes and small businesses that features a 7-inch, full-color touchscreen display with graphic icons and intuitive prompts for easy operation.

With the ability to view live video of up to four cameras right on the large display, LYNX Touch 7000 enhances the user experience and provides home and business owners with better security and awareness of activities happening in and around the premises, according to a June 30 news release.

The LYNX Touch 7000’s features include Z-Wave automation capabilities, advanced alarm communications, garage door notification and control and tornado alerts. Along with two-way voice over GSM, the LYNX Touch 7000 offers low-cost two-way voice over Wi-Fi to streamline the installation process, provide greater options for connectivity and increase the potential for RMR, the release said.

“Research shows that consumers are looking for video as part of their security and connected home systems, and now dealers can add up to four IP cameras on every sale to meet that expectation,” Rob Puric, marketing director for Connected Home, Honeywell Security Products Americas, said in a prepared statement. “Once customers have video at their fingertips, they’ll want to interact with their systems wherever they are—an ideal opportunity to offer Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services.”

The LYNX Touch 7000 supports quad-camera viewing when used with Honeywell Total Connect Video products. The Honeywell LYNX Connect app lets users locally view video and control their systems from any iOS or Android device.

The LYNX Touch 7000 recently took top honors at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) on June 25—winning the prestigious 2014 Best Overall Maximum Impact Award.
