 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.

 Review of the Honeywell Lyric Secondary Keypad (LKP500-EN)

Honeywell LKP500-EN secondary Lyric Keypad

Honeywell LKP500-EN secondary Lyric Keypad

The Honeywell Lyric Secondary keypad (LKP500-EN) is small in size, which makes it perfect for mounting in those hard-to-fit places. The sleek and stylish product design, allows the keypad to blend into any decor. The installation of the keypad is easy with choices of either wall-mounting or optionally using a Lyric Desk stand kit (LKP500-DK) which is great if you are planning on DIY installing on tabletops, nightstands or kitchen counter. A big benefit of the Lyric Secondary Keypad is its range. Previous 5828/5828v keypads could not be placed further than 50 feet while LKP500-EN has a listed wireless range of 300ft!

The LKP500-EN is the Honeywell wireless secondary keypad that works with systems that work with SiX Series encrypted technology such as the Honeywell Lyric Controller. The Lyric Keypad takes advantage of the 2.4ghz channel which offers full 128-bit encryption to prevent intruders from jamming the RF signals. With the LKP500-EN you also get a keypad that is fully supervised. This means that the Lyric Keypad sends signals back to the alarm control panel every 60 seconds making sure it is still within range. If the Lyric Controller does not receive this signal a supervision loss signal will be sent to our professional alarm monitoring station and if you have Total Connect Services activated with AlarmClub you will receive text and email notifications to your smartphone.

The Lyric Keypad allows you quickly arm/disarm the Honeywell Lyric Security System as well as listen to system status updates with its built-in speaker. One of the greatest benefits of the Lyric LKP500-EN keypad is its panic button features for police, fire, and medical purposes. The Lyric Controller will allow up to 8 LKP500-EN to be programmed at any given time. We recommend adding multiple LKP500-EN wireless Lyric Keypads spread out by the most frequently entered and exited locations such as front doors, garage doors, and master bedrooms.

With the Honeywell LKP500-EN you will have access to its own settings menu where you can adjust features such as turn chime on and off, toggle exit tone/entry tone, voice volume, key level, display brightness, and backlight brightness. To access this area of Lyric Keypad settings simply press and hold select key until menu begins, use the scroll key to the settings, use the select key to choose from desired menu item, use the scroll key to toggle menu options, press select key to save your settings and press cancel at any time to exit Lyric Keypad settings menu. When firmware updates are available for this product you can upgrade the software by manually or remotely by AlarmClub. To upgrade the Lyric LKP500-EN software locally go to the Lyric Controller programming menu select security, tools, enter the master code by default which is 1234, advanced, upgrade sensor firmware. After performing the upgrade command, the keypad displays the upgrade status then, when done, automatically resets twice. Once the Lyric Keypad completes the reset, it will return to normal operation.

Programming the Honeywell LKP500-EN secondary keypad is accomplished through the Lyric Controller installer programming menu. To access this area of programming on the controller you must have your installer code. The Lyric Controller Installer code is 4112. Once you access the installer menu select Program. This area of the Lyric control panel programming is the same area that you would program a Honeywell SiXCT door/window contact, Honeywell SiXPIR motion sensor, Honeywell SiXGB, or a Honeywell SiXSIREN although the programming tactics would vary from device to device.

The Honeywell LKP500-EN product includes:

• Battery pack (7.2VDC) provides 24-hour backup battery power (Included)

• An external 110VAC input/9VDC output power pack and cable (Included)

 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.

 How to Connect my Honeywell IP Camera to Total Connect 2.0?

Here you will learn how to connect your Honeywell IP camera to Total Connect 2.0 using three different configuration’s.

 

Configuration One:

How to Connect Honeywell IP Cameras?

How to Connect Honeywell IP Camera Step One

The First configuration we are going to be showing you is when you are hard wiring the Honeywell IP Security Camera’s back to your Router and your router supports dynamic host control protocol.

This option is used for a couple different reasons. First, if you are planning on having the Honeywell IP camera’s out of the wireless internet range you can hard wire them so you can locate them much further. Lastly, your router doesn’t have a WPS button to sync to the IP Camera’s. These are the two most common reasons for usage of this configuration. With Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 camera services you can have up to six cameras that can be viewed from your smart devices from anywhere in the world.

Configuration Two:

This configuration is used when your home or business internet router has a WPS button so that you can sync your Honeywell IP Camera’s to the internet router without having to hard wire the cable between the two devices. This is especially convenient and makes for a quick and easy DIY Installation of your IP cameras. With Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 camera services you can have up to six cameras that can be viewed from your smart devices from anywhere in the world.

If you are connecting your IP Cameras and you are having range issues than you will need a Honeywell WREX Wi-Fi repeater. If you are attempting to connect your Honeywell IP camera along with a WREX and it is still not connecting because of range issues you may want to look at configuration one above for that particular camera as a last option.

Configuration Three:

The Last way to connect Honeywell IP cameras to total connect 2.0 is used when you want to connect your cameras through your home or business Wi-Fi network and your internet router does not have a WPS button for syncing. In this case you simply connect the Honeywell WAP-PLUS to your internet router and this will allow you to wireless connect your Honeywell IP camera’s to your wireless internet connection. With Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 camera services you can have up to six cameras that can be viewed from your smart devices from anywhere in the world. The same applies to this configuration if you are having range issues connecting the IP cameras to the WAP-PLUS you may need to install a Honeywell WREX Wi-Fi repeater to extend the allowed range.
