Do you have a Honeywell Lynx panel, also known as the Quick Connect by ADT? If so, you may be wondering, “Which Lynx back up battery should I get to keep my system up and running in case of a power outage?”
Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to answer!
The Best Back Up Battery For Your Needs
There are several Lynx Keypads available, as you can see here. Regardless of which Lynx keypad you have, having a back up battery is crucial for protecting your home or business. Power outages aren’t just inconvenient, unfortunately, they are also times that burglars take advantage of. Most of the time the Lynx Back Up Batteries last for about 5 years. If yours is 5 or more years old you should probably grab one really soon so you are prepared. If your back up battery goes out sooner it might be because you have had a few or more power outages. Either way you probably have a low battery notice on your keypad and if you push the * button twice it will tell you that it is a system battery and not a sensor battery.
As far as figuring out which back up battery you should buy for your panel, we offer three different options.
These three back up batteries are:
- Lynx Back Up Battery for Honeywell Lynx or QuickConnect panel (Larger Size)
- 24 Hour Lynx Back Up Battery
- Replacement Back Up Battery for Honeywell Lynx or Quickconnect panel
Let’s run through how to decide between your options, and discuss each one, so you can reinforce your system with the best back up battery.
Deciding Between Back Up Batteries
The best way to know which back up battery you should purchase will depend on how many pin connectors your panel has.
If your Lynx panel is older, you will only have a 2-pin connector option. On the other hand, if your Lynx panel is newer, you may have a 3-pin connector option.
This is important to know because each battery may have a different connecting option.
To find out what type of connecting options your Lynx panel has, the best way is to use a flat head screwdriver to push the tabs to open the front of your keypad.
Doing this will allow you to see the back up battery and determine your connecting option. Once you have a new back up battery, it’s as simple as unplugging the old one and plugging in the new one!
