Lyric Security System: Add Sub User Codes

Lyric Security System: Add Sub User Codes


Hi DIYers. Sterling with Alarm Grade here.
Today we are going to show you to add sub-user codes to your Honeywell lyric system. We have
a video that describes master code programming versus installer code programming. So the
panel comes with two code set out of the box. The master code is 1234. That is the code
you should use to arm and disarm the system as well as manipulate the master level of
programming. The default installer code is the other code that sets out of the box and
that is 4112 and that allows you to access the panel’s deeper level of programming for
zone programming and monitoring set up, communicator set up, and that kind of staff. So those two codes are in there out of the
box but, there is the ability to add up to 46 more codes for various users that may use
the system, whether it is a cleaning lady, handy man, family member or employee. There
are all kinds of reasons that you will want to add different sub-users so that if the
master code is used it will report as the master and you know that the people that have
access to the master, must have armed the system.
If you set up a sub-user and that user doesn’t have access to to the master code when they
arm and disarm it will record as user 3, for instance, or John, or Mark or whatever you
label that user 3 code. So by using different user codes you can track who is arming and
disarming the system and when those arming and disarming occurred. So, if you want to
track your employees are shutting the business and locking up as expected at the end of the
night, you can get your text message from Total Connect that John armed the system with
user code three and you know everything is in order. That level of who is arming and
disarming the system is also stored in the event log. So if you’re not monitored it is
still gives you the ability to go back in time and say, who armed the system at is this
particular time and date? So we’re going to show you how to add sub-user
codes now. To add a user, you need to know your existing master code. If you don’t know
your existing master code, but if your know your existing installer code you can use our
video on resetting your master code and then you would have access to the master. But if
this is a brand new install, you just have to use the default 1234 code. And if it is
not a brand new install you just have to know your installer code or your master code and
you will be able to get in. In this case we just showed you how to change
the master code in our prior video, so you notice when I typed in 1234, it didn’t it
work, and it is because we changed a master the 1397.
Now that we are in our master level programming, if we hit users, we can add a guest code.
This guest code slot, can be a little confusing. If you want to add a guest user we suggest
that you do it by adding new instead of just manipulating the guest code. The guest code
acts a little different and we have a video on the guest code and specifically how that
code works. But if you just want to allow someone to arm and disarm the system no matter
when, but in a way that will report that someone other than the master did it, all you have
to do is add new and you will see user 3 on slot 3, installer code is slot 1, master code
is slot 2, and because we have no sub-users in the panel yet, the first one we add will
be user 3. We can tap in the name box and using the keypad
screen we can give it a custom name. You will have to clear out the user three portion of
it, and you can put in Sterling. And if I’m letting someone else to be my master and am
going to be the sub-user, I would put my name in there. I would type into my user code box
and am just going to put in 2345, and done. When I save it, you can now see on the user
screen that instead of just master, guest, and duress, we now have a sub-user of Sterling,
which is set 2345. Now when back out and go to the home screen, hit security, and arm
away, 2345 arms the system. Before that code was programmed, 2345 on the screen would have
kicked us back out and nothing would have happen. I can go ahead and disarm. And now we are
back to disarmed. If you go and look at the event log, which is accessible from the master
level programming, 1397 is our master code because we just changed that. Then we go to
events, we can see at the top arm away user three, disarm user 3. Because we have access
to the master code we know who user 3 is, and this is our ability at the panel to know
who armed and disarmed. Again a great way to keep track of kids coming home from school
or employees that are opening up and locking down at the end of the night and all kinds
of reasons that you will want to set up sub-user codes in your panel. With this video, you
now know how to do that. We hope you have enjoyed this video. If you have any questions
on manipulating your panel user codes please reach out. We’d be happy to help and make
sure to subscribe to our channel so you are up to date on all these great new videos that
we are releasing about this revolutionary new Honeywell lyric system.
