Using Wired Contacts w/ a Lyric Alarm System

Using Wired Contacts w/ a Lyric Alarm System


Hey, DIYers. Dylan here with Alarm Grid. Today, we’re going over
how to hardwire contacts into the Lyric controller. So the Lyric controller has two
zones dedicated to hardwire. I’m going to show
you those right now. So as always, whenever you’re
trying to look at zones, you’re going to be going
through the programming screen with the installer code. So we’re going to
do security, tools, 4112 is the default installer
code, program, and then zones. So zones one and two are
dedicated for hardwire, so you can’t load really any
wireless contacts into this. It’s just not going
to function properly. One and two are
specifically hardwired. If you want to start
doing wireless contacts, that’s three, four,
so on and so forth. But one and two,
just to show you. So as you see, if I press
on one and then edit, we don’t get an option
for serial number. But if I press on
two and edit, we have the serial number
option right there. That’s showing us right
there that a serial number is basically for the RF sensors. So since one and two don’t
have a serial number, you know you can’t do anything
with a wireless sensor. So we have the descriptors. We have device type. As you can see, we have
very limited selections on what we can set as a device
for our zones one and two, door or window. So we have descriptor, we have
device type, say we did window. Response types, we have
perimeter, entry exit, which you won’t use for
windows, some monitor settings, and a day/night. Alarm report, obviously that’s
just standard programming. We don’t have to worry
about that too much. But then, as you see
here, supervision, set to end of line, normally
closed or normally open. So depending on how you’re
going to wire this thing and what type of
device you’re using, that’s how you’re going
to set the supervision. And then just to show you the
actual contacts themselves– well, the terminals,
I’ll take this off the wall,
silence the tamper. If you ever get the
panel tampering, you just press on the home
button, enter your master code and it will silence it. So our contacts are right here. Obviously, we see the
first two being used. That is the power. We have the ground and
the 9-volt terminals. And then the next ones
here are for the zones. So if you can see
it on the camera, it’s very clear on
what they’re for. First one says HWZ1,
hardwire zone one of course. There’s a ground, and then
HWZ2, hardwire zone 2. So one and two both
share a common ground, so you’ll wire positive
end into the HWs, and then negative end the
ground into the ground. Once those are wired
in there, you go back through that programming. You setup door or
window, zone descriptor, if you’re going to
be using a resistor– which would be a 2k
resistor– or if you’re going to be using a normally
open or normally closed device. For that, that’s essentially
majority of there is for hardwire. Not really much you can do. You can’t do smokes, you can’t
do motions, nothing like that. You can only do
doors or windows. We do have more information
on how to do programming especially for hardwire zones. So if you want, check out
