Lyric Security System: Installer Code P2

Lyric Security System: Installer Code P2


Once you do 4112 after hitting tools, now
you’re in the installer level programming. It’s asking us to connect to the server. Again,
it’s looking to connect to AlarmNet because this system is not yet enabled for monitoring.
We’re just going to say no. But now we’re into the deeper level installer programming.
You have some higher level testing that could be done. You’ll also see there’s certain things
that were in that master level programming within this screen, but they’re assuming an
installer would have a lot more reason to do deeper level diagnostics and deeper level
testing than what the end user will do. The end user doesn’t need that because the
installer is supposed to have already been doing that. Of course, you as a do-it-yourselfer,
you should have access to both and that can be done here. Same idea if the installer had
to view event logs, or export event logs, they have that same functionality. So some of this stuff is doubled up and lives
in both levels of programming, but it’s just all a matter of who’s getting it to these
levels. Once you hit program, you’re actually into the installer level programming. And
from here you have system type, so you have RF code, RF jam. You have some options for
tweaking the panel, the panel’s event log, what’s going to be enabled, what’s not going
to be enabled. You still have your date/time option. You have the ability to change the
installer code, so when we showed you the master code stuff, and we showed you how you
can change the master code, your duress code, your guest code, your sub-user codes. You’ll
notice that you can’t change your installer code through there. And again, it’s because
Honeywell wants to keep those two levels of programming separate. But once you’ve used
the installer code, then you can’t change it. Communicator is for your monitoring parameters.
Normally that should be reserved for letting your alarm company set that up for you. Nothing
that you as an end-user would have to do it, even if you’re doing it do-it-yourself. Comm-diagnostics is some deeper level programming
based around the WiFi or cellular communicator. Zones is probably the most popular thing you’ll
do within the installer level programming here, and you can scroll down and see all
your zones, and change and manipulate your zones. Keys is for key fobs, so if you’re going to
program key fobs to the panel. Reporter is again for stuff, for monitoring purposes.
This is normally something your monitoring company will set you up on, but there’s some
levels of options within there. System settings is some basic programming of the system, entry
delays, the backlight timeout that we showed you in a different video, and some of the
other options that the panel allows you to set up. Sounder allows you to manipulate the time
that the siren will sound for. And it can do some other things like arm confirm. And
we’ll have videos describing all of these features in higher level detail, but we just
kind of wanted to give you a rough overview of everything that you can do from within
the installer level programming. Z-wave, you can see if Z-wave’s enabled. Default config
is if you wanted to take it back to a factory default. Reset master code. Language, you
can actually select the language of the installer level programming and the user level programming.
So if you were a homeowner that wanted Spanish for the panel screen, but your installer is
English, then you could set it up that way. So it’s kind of cool. And then finally, RF keypad is a way to add
not the WiFi tablets, but actually the Honeywell wireless keypads that they’re going to support
as well. So all of that can be done from the installer level of programming. And again,
installer level programming is accessed via 4112 code unless you changed it. Master level
programming is set via the 1234 master code. So we hope that helps you understand better
why there are two levels of programming, why there are two default codes out of the box
when you get your Honeywell Lyric. If you have any questions about any programming on
your system, or which code to use to access which levels of programming, please let us
know, we’re here to help. And make sure to subscribe to our channel so that you’re up
to date on all of the great new features of this revolutionary new system.
