Lyric Security System: Change Date and Time

Lyric Security System: Change Date and Time


Hi DIY-ers, Sterling with Alarm Grid here,
and today we’re going to show you how to change the date and time on your Honeywell Lyric
wireless security system. So, this Lyric has already been associated
with monitoring service, and therefore it’s got the WiFi communications active with the
router. It actually has a cellular card installed as well. So it’s communicating to Alarm Net
via WiFi and cellular. And it’s actually grabbing the date and time based on the server time.
So, 6:01 PM is already grabbing that time from the server. However, if we were in non-eastern
time zone, this time would be off, all right? It’s smart enough to grab the time from the
server, but it needs to be told what time zone the system is in. And so if you’re Pacific Standard Time and
you want to change so that this timing’s not three hours in the future, you have to hit
security, tools. You can go at this two ways, installer mode or master programming mode.
If you do 1-2-3-4, which is the default master, you can hit date and time. You could select
your custom date, but it’s going to override when the server is active so there’s no point
in doing that. Just hit the down arrow twice, and now you have this selection to choose
Pacific. And if you save it on Pacific time and come back out to the home screen, it’ll
take a minute to update but this 6:02 time will fall back to 3:02. Because there’s a
three hour time difference between East Coast Standard Time and Pacific Standard Time. And
because we’ve locked in that date-time selection, once this server update, which we should be
able to force it to update… Well, we could run a reboot, but it will update after a time
and fall back to that 3:02. So, again if you’re not East Coast Time zone, you want to make
sure you change your time zone selection in your panel to make sure that your server updated
time updates to the proper time. And you can see just right there, it fell back to 3:03. Now that we’ve changed it to 3:03, we lied,
we’re not in Pacific Time, we’re actually in Eastern, so let’s show you using the installer
code how to change it back. So we did it with the master code programming 1-2-3-4 before,
now we’re going to do 4-1-1-2 which is the default programmer code. And when we hit program,
we have date time as an option. Same exact process down arrow twice. Toggle it until
it says east coast. You’ll notice also, different than the Lynx Touch they’ve added a few different
time zone options for people that aren’t even in the United States, so that’s kind of cool
as well if you’re one of our international customers. So now that we’ve saved it back
to east coast, that one updated even faster, right away went to 6:04, we’re back to the
right date and time. So, that is how to program the date and time.
Really once you’re live with monitoring, which we encourage every Lyric system to be monitored,
the date and time portion will update live but the time zone portion of the date and
time is very important that you know how to select that. And that’s what this video shows
you. So we hope you’ve enjoyed it, if you have any questions on how your date and time
works on your Honeywell Lyric system, please email us [email protected], and make sure

new Honeywell Lyric security system.
