Honeywell Lyric Alarm System: Z Wave Compatibility

Honeywell Lyric Alarm System: Z Wave Compatibility


Hi. This is Bryce from Alarm
Grid, and today we’re going to be talking about
the compatibility of Z-Wave with your Honeywell
Lyric controller. The great thing about your
Honeywell Lyric controller is that it comes fresh out the
box with Z-Wave compatibility. It has its own
Z-Wave module built in, unlike the predecessors
of the Honeywell Lyric, like the L5200, L7000,
and the Honeywell Vista, where you had to buy pretty
pricey Z-Wave modules to make them Z-Wave compatible. This comes fresh
out the box being able to add a Z-Wave device to. The Honeywell Lyric is
compatible with the lights, thermostat, sirens, water
valves, window shades, almost plenty of Z-Wave devices
that you’re able to add. You can use Yale, Kwikset,
Schlage locks, Fortess Sirens, the Honeywell ZWSTAT is
a thermostat, the Trane thermostat GE, Cooper,
[INAUDIBLE] devices, Z-Wave devices, to use
with your Honeywell Lyric. And is fairly simple to add in
[INAUDIBLE] into your device. All you have to do is, when
you do get your Honeywell controller and you
get it powered on, you should see the options
Security, Automation, Video, Smart Scenes,
Notices, and Settings. All you have to do
is press Automations. Then you will be
brought to a menu where you will see the categories
of Z-Wave devices that you are able to add in, so
switches, thermostats, locks, garage, water valves. Here you’ll press the down
button, and then tools. You’ll be given the option to
include and exclude a device. When you want to add a device
in, be sure to press include. There you’ll be given the
option to include your device. It asks you to press
the Function key. Here we have a linear lamp
dimmer, and as you see, here’s the Function
key on the front. This is used to dim lights. So basically you plug
a light in and you’re able to control the
level of the lights. So once you plug this in,
make sure that you have it three feet away from the panel. Most Z-Wave devices ask that
it is very close to the panel while including in. So make sure it’s three
feet away and plugged in, and when you have it
in Inclusion mode, just make sure you
press the Function key. And it will usually
learn right in. Some appliances come
tested from the factory, so most of the time, or half
of the time, all you have to do is go back and go to Exclude. You will exclude it first,
and it should pick it up when you press the
Function key, and then you’re able to go back
after it’s excluded and include it right back in. Once it’s included
in the panel, it’ll actually show right above in
one of these categories here. So if you add in a lamp dimmer,
it will go under a Switch. If you add in a garage, it will
go under Garage Door Opener, a lock, Locks,
thermostats, Thermostats, water valves go there. Now to control your
actual Z-Wave device, you have to set up Smart Scenes. These are scenes that you use
when something is triggered or they run by a
schedule or a time to basically set off
these Z-Wave devices. So let’s say you want a scene
where you open the front door, and you want the
lights to turn on. Then you’ll go to
your Smart Scenes tab, which was on the
front screen again, and you could set up a
scene that does that. So when you press
Smart Scenes, you’ll have to enter your master code. One, two, three, four. That’s the default master
code, but the master code is what you use
to arm and disarm your system, which is completely
different from the installers code, which you use to program. Now you’ll get the options
of All, Any Time, Trigger, or Schedule. So Schedule will be for
time, so that will basically be for a time schedule. So let’s say you want the lights
to turn on every day at 8:00 in the morning. Then you can set up
a Schedule Scene. Or Trigger will be,
let’s say, as I said, when you come in the front door,
you set the system to disarm, you’ll have all
the lights turn on, and you’ll have the windows
open with the window shade, or you can do locks. You can also set it up where
your Z-Wave lock when you enter your code disarms the panel. That is a special setting
that you can set in the Lyric when you add a user code,
you can apply Z-Wave disarm. When going through the Smart
Scenes, as I said earlier, you’ll just click whichever
you want, so let’s do Schedule. It has no items to display
yet because we haven’t added in the Z-Wave device properly,
but when your Z-Wave devices show up there, you’ll be able
to create the scene then. If you find this
