 Benefits of Honeywell SiX Series Sensors

Honeywell SiX Series Sensors

                                                Honeywell SiX Series Sensors

The Honeywell Lyric Security System has added a whole new product line of wireless sensors called SiX Series. The SiX line includes a suite of next-generation devices that include a SiXPIR, SiXCT contact, SiXSMOKE detector, SiXGB, two-way SiXFOB and wireless SiXSIREN with LED indicator lights. SiX devices provide key advantages over the previous Honeywell 5800 devices.

The most popular and important advancement to SiX Sensors is its secure encryption. These devices send their supervised signals back to a supported control panel such as the Honeywell Lyric Controller by introducing secure 128 bit encrypted AES signals for a higher level of security. This is accomplished with direct sequence, spread spectrum DSSS, two-way radio utilizing the 2.4GHz RF band. In the 2.4GHz frequency there are 16 channels available for SiX devices and when it registers with a supported alarm control panel, it will automatically determine which frequency channel the panel is operating on. This creates a fluctuation in the reporting signals which enables the encryption.

SiX devices allow for easier DIY installations and maintenance with its easy pull battery tabs, auto enrollment, and no touch adjustment capabilities. SiX is easier to maintain with its addition of the system health check feature. This feature lets the end users monitor their devices signal strength so they know the location of the sensors is sufficient, battery life so one can prepare themselves to replace batteries before they go into a trouble condition, sensor settings to make self-adjustments to the way sensors react.  All of these additions can also be remotely monitored and adjusted by Alarmclub if you are a monitored client.

Lastly, a feature called Lyric Lock has been introduced. Honeywell Lyric Lock works when a SiX device is programmed to a Lyric Controller it can only communicate with that dedicated system until it has been deprogrammed. This is one feature to be cautious about because alarm companies can remotely turn Lyric Lock on to prevent account takeovers by competitors or self-programming. AlarmClub never locks their customers out of the system programming and gives them the option to how they want sensors to be programmed with their systems.

 AlarmClub Announces the Release of the Honeywell SiXSMOKE

Honeywell Lyric SiXSMOKE Wireless Smoke Detector

Honeywell Lyric SiXSMOKE Wireless Smoke Detector

The Honeywell Lyric SiXSMOKE has finally been released and is available for shipping within the USA and Canada. The SiXSMOKE was announced at the same time as all of the other SiX Series sensors and where available for ordering but, these sensors were delayed for a few months. The Lyric smoke detector is compatible with the Honeywell Lyric Controller and other systems that can utilize SiX sensor. Once the SiXSMOKE is enrolled into the panel, it cannot be used with another control panel until it has been deleted first because of the Lyric Lock feature. Each Lyric smoke detector has a unique MAC number located on the sticker on the unit.

The wireless SiXSMOKE has a maximum coverage area of 50′ X 50′ and detects smoke/heat in two ways Fixed =135° F Heat Sensing and Rate-of-Rise Sensing of =15° F within 1 minute. One of the coolest features of the Lyric SiXSMOKE, when paired with a Lyric Controller is the fact that if you have more than one detector you can set up the One Go All Go feature which will activate all SiXSMOKE’s if one is triggered. You can place the Lyric SiXSMOKE within 300 feet of the alarm control panel which allows you to install in those back areas. The SiXSMOKE works on a a Direct Sequence, Spread Spectrum (DSSS), two-way radio utilizing the 2.4GHz RF band. In the 2.4GHz band, there are 16 channels available for SiX™. When the device registers with the control panel, it will automatically determine which frequency channel the panel is operating on.

When the SiXSMOKE photoelectric beam detects the presence of smoke, it will go into alarm and send the alarm signal to the Lyric Controller. The Lyric SiXSMOKE works best when you have professional alarm monitoring for your Lyric Security System. Once our central alarm monitoring station receives these signals we can dispatch the exact fire department for your area. During an alarm condition, pressing the detectors test switch will silence the piezoelectric horn for 5 minutes. When programmed in one-go-all-go mode, the detector can only be silenced from the controller. When the battery of the Lyric SiXSMOKE is no longer working you will need to replace it with One 3V lithium battery. Duracell DL123 and DL123A, Panasonic CR123A, Honeywell 466. Remove batteries for at least 10 seconds, before installing new ones.

Note: Do not mix old and new batteries, battery types or manufacturers.

 DIY Alarm Monitoring vs Professional Alarm Monitoring?

 

If you currently have a security system you may be wondering what is the difference between DIY alarm monitoring and professional alarm monitoring? DIY alarm monitoring services – Works when your home or business security system sends its alarm signals directly to your smart device via push notifications and or email’s. Once you receive these alarm signals it will be up to you to dispatch the proper authorities if need be. When thinking about activating DIY alarm monitoring keep in mind that your security system must have the ability to integrate with a interactive alarm monitoring application such as Honeywell’s total connect 2.0, Alarm.com, Telular home control etc… As these interactive security software’s are what allow for notifications from your security system back to your smart device’s.

Professional alarm monitoring – The way this works is if you think of your security system as a data center, that data than needs a method of transmitting those signals to a alarm monitoring station. Typically your security system can transmit this data via phone line/voip services, broadband internet, WiFi, Cellular or dual path communications. If GEOARM receives alarm signals from your security system we will analyze those signals, reach out to your emergency call list that you have provided to us, if there is no answer or a wrong password is given we will dispatch the proper authorities to your location for police, fire or medical services. In most cases if you are activating your security system for insurance purposes this will be the option you are going to want to go with. Reason being is because in order to meet most insurance company requirements for a certificate of alarm they want to have your security system signals picked up by a professional alarm monitoring company.
