How Do I Disable a Honeywell Lyric Controller?

You can disable a Honeywell Lyric Controller by powering down the system. This is done by disconnecting the backup battery and unplugging the AC transformer. With the Honeywell Lyric System powered down, it will have no way of sending out alarm reports or producing any sirens or chimes.

There are many reasons why a person might want to power down their Lyric System. For example, if they are making hardware changes, then powering down the system is a necessary step to prevent damaging the panel. Other users might try powering down the system for troubleshooting purposes. Regardless, you should always keep in mind that your alarm system will essentially be disabled until you power the system back on.

However, disabling a panel is pretty dramatic. There's very little to keep a system disabled unless you cancel your monitoring service and have no intention of using the panel. A system is basically useless when it is disabled. You will be unable to receive automatic dispatch from a central monitoring station. You also cannot receive text or email alerts or notifications from an interactive service platform like Total Connect 2.0. The system will also be unable to produce sirens or chimes while it is powered off. Finally, any system Z-Wave smart home functionality will not work.

It is important to understand that disabling your panel does not mean that your are cancelling monitoring service. If you disable your Lyric and keep your monitoring plan, then you will still be paying for it. This is despite the fact that you really won't be using your monitoring service while your system is powered off. If you want to cancel your monitoring service, you should contact your alarm monitoring company for more information.

A Lyric System that has been powered off and disabled will continue to remain that way until it is powered back on. If you would like to disable your Lyric Controller, complete the following steps:

1. Disconnect the backup battery. Open the back panel of the Lyric System. Disconnect the backup battery from the back of the panel.

2. Unplug the transformer. Find the system transformer. Unplug it from the outlet. The system should power down.

3. Confirm the shut down. The main system screen should be blank. This indicates that the system is powered down and disabled. When you want to power it back on, make sure to plug-in the transformer first. Reconnecting the backup battery before reconnecting the transformer could result in panel damage.
