WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.—Security Networks affiliates are now offering Wi-Fi monitoring on Honeywell’s LYNX Touch 5100 security system, according to a company statement.

The transition to Wi-Fi makes installation more efficient, reducing upfront equipment costs and enabling affiliates to increase revenue, the statement said.

“By offering a Wi-Fi based system, Security Networks is on the cutting edge of security technology and it gives our affiliates an easier way to make sure the systems they provide meet our customers’ high expectations,” Kurt Becker, vice president, Security Networks, said in the statement.

The Wi-Fi capability allows users to not only manage their security systems using mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, but also to manage home controls and appliances, including thermostats, lighting and door locks.
