Lyric-3G/Lyric-3GC & Lyric-CDMA

Installation Instructions

General Information

The Lyric-3G/Lyric-3GC and Lyric-CDMA Communication Modules allow the Lyric Controller to communicate with the
Central Station via the cellular radio network.
NOTE: The Lyric-CDMA Communications Module is available only in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii.
IMPORTANT: Before installing the communication module, make sure power (both AC and battery) is removed from the
controller or use the “Install Cellular Module” mode described in the Communicator Module Replacement section below.

Installing the Module

1. Install the provided FCC/IC label on the control’s case back.
(Lyric-3G/3GC: P/N 800-19687; Lyric-CDMA: P/N 800-19688)

2. Remove bezel from right-hand side of control to expose the
communication module slot. To remove the bezel, push
upward then slide it out.
3. Insert the module into the slot. Push firmly to mate the edge
connector. Install the securing screw to ensure proper
connection and operation.
4. Replace the bezel.
5. After all other connections are made, power up the controller.
6. Program and register the module during the controller’s initial
association with its AlarmNet 360™ account. Refer to the
controller’s Programming Guide for details.
7. Check the signal strength before permanently locating the
Lyric Controller. See Checking Signal Strength section.

Checking Signal Strength

When choosing a suitable mounting location, check the
communicator’s signal strength to ensure proper operation. For
most installations, using the module’s internal antenna, mounting
the Lyric controller as high as practical, and avoiding large metal
components provides adequate signal strength.
Use the Lyric Controller “Cellular Information” screen to display
signal strength (in dBm):
Security – Tools – [installer code] – Program – Comm. Diagnostics –
Cellular Information

Lyric-3G/3GC: Compare the RSCP (received signal code power
[3G]) or RSSI (received signal strength indicator
[2G]) number displayed to the Signal Strength
Guide at right to ensure adequate signal strength.

Signal Strength Guide – Lyric 3G
RSCP (3G) – if module is using the 3G Network
Good ......... -20 to -90 dBm
OK ............. -91 to -100 dBm
Marginal... -101 to -106 dBm
Bad ............ -107 to -120 dBm
RSSI (2G) – if module is using the 2G Network
Good ......... -20 to -89 dBm
OK ............. -90 to -98 dBm
Marginal... -99 to -104 dBm
Bad ............ -105 to -120 dBm

If adequate signal strength cannot be achieved, an external antenna should be used. See Using an External Antenna
section on other side.

Communicator Module Replacement

In the event the module needs to be replaced, the Lyric Controller must first be put in module replacement mode
(“Install Cellular Module”) to avoid causing a tamper alarm or damaging the module. Module replacement mode
deactivates tamper protection and removes power from the module connector for about 15 minutes.
1. Select the Install Cellular Module button.
End User: Security –Tools – [master code] – Advanced
Installer: Security – Tools – [installer code] –Test
a. Select Yes at the prompt to continue.
b. A popup window displays steps for module replacement.
Keep this window open until replacement is completed
2. Remove the side bezel. See diagram at right.
3. Remove the screw that secures the module.
4. Remove the communication module from its connection slot
by using the pull tab.
5. Insert the new module into the slot. Push firmly to mate the
edge connector. Replace the screw.
6. Replace the bezel.
7. When installation is complete, press OK at the replacement
steps window. Confirmation of proper installation appears.
Press OK to exit.

Replacing the Module

Using an External Antenna


If adequate signal strength cannot be achieved, use
external antenna kit model: Cell-ANTST.

Connecting an External Antenna

Lyric-3G/3GC Frequency Bands

Quad Band 850/900/1800/1900 MHz


The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a
separation distance of at least 7.8 in (20 cm) from all persons and must
not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other transmitter
except in accordance with FCC multi-transmitter product procedures.

3G UMTS Band V, Band II 850/1900MHz

Mise en Garde

Exposition aux Fréquences Radio: L'antenne (s) utilisée pour cet
émetteur doit être installée à une distance de séparation d'au moins 7,8
pouces (20 cm) de toutes les personnes.


If an external cellular radio antenna is used, the antenna may
be installed or replaced ONLY by a professional installer.


The external antenna must not exceed a maximum directional
gain (including cable loss) of 3.2 dBi at 850 MHz and 2.3 dBi at
1900 MHz.

Lyric-CDMA RF Features
• Dual-band support for both the 800MHz cellular
and 1.9GHz PCS bands.
• Adheres to CDMA authentication as specified in
• Support for IS-95A/B and CDMA 1X Release 0/A.
