Can I Use the Skybell DBCam Trim w/ a Lyric Security System?
Yes, you can use the Skybell DBCam Trim with a Lyric security system. This is because the Skybell can be controlled and operated through the Total Connect service. Since the Lyric Controller is compatible with Total Connect, it is possible to use a Skybell DBCam Trim with the system.
Once your Skybell DBCam Trim has been installed and set up, you will be able to perform all of its functions using Total Connect. This includes viewing a live feed of the camera, interacting with whoever is at your door and being notified whenever the doorbell is pressed. By using the Total Connect mobile app, you will be able to perform these functions from almost anywhere in the world.
It is also possible to integrate the Skybell DBCam Trim so that the Lyric Controller produces a "chime" sound when the main button on the doorbell is pressed. This is useful for having the Lyric act as a local sound maker for the SkyBell device. This can be done by going to https://hwinstall.myskybell.com/ on a web browser that is on the same WIFI network as the DBCam Trim. The access code you will enter is "honeywelllyriccontroller". You will also need to enter in the serial number for the DBCam Trim. From there, you can configure the device as needed.
Follow these steps to get started using your Skybell DBCam Trim with Total Connect:
1. Install the Skybell. Install the Skybell DBCam Trim as normal. Consult the guide that came with the device for more information.
2. Enable the Skybell feature. In order to use a Skybell device with Total Connect, you will need to have the feature enabled by your monitoring company. Contact your alarm company, and let them know that you would like to use a Skybell with Total Connect. Your alarm company will then enable the Skybell feature for your account from their end, and they will assist you with creating a Skybell account.

Make sure your Skybell is in WIFI Synchronization mode. You will know it is in this mode because the device will be blinking red and green. If it is not already in synchronization mode, press and hold the main button on the doorbell until it starts blinking red and green. Once it is in synchronization mode, press the "Next" button.
4. Join a WIFI network. With the Skybell device in synchronization mode, press the "Select Skybell WIFI" button within the app. Then select the access point titled "SkybellHD". You will then be prompted to choose a WIFI network for the Skybell device. Make your selection to place a checkmark next to the network you want to use. Then hit the "Next" button. You will then need to enter in the password for the WIFI network. Enter in the password, and then press the "Next" button. Your Total Connect account will then begin configuring and enrolling your Skybell device.
Once the process is complete, you can press the "Watch Live" button to view a live feed of the device.
