How do I Enroll a Sensor on my LYNX L5210, L7000 or Lyric?

You can enroll a sensor on your LYNX L5210, L7000 or Lyric by accessing Zone Programming on your panel and then auto-enrolling the device. From there, you will need to adjust the settings of the sensor so that it will perform correctly. You should test the sensor after enrolling it.

Complete the following steps to enroll a sensor to a LYNX L5210, L7000 or Lyric Controller:

1. Access zone settings. From the home screen of the panel, go to Security > More (if using L5210 or L7000) > Tools > enter installer code (default is 4112) > Program > Zones. You will now be in the Zone Programming Menu. Click on an available zone to highlight it. Then choose "Edit" in the bottom-left corner of the screen. You can also click "Add New" which will take you to the edit screen of the next available zone. You will now be in the zone edit screen.

2. Learn-in the sensor. Click on the "Serial Number" field. The panel will begin searching for a device to auto-enroll. Fault and restore the sensor three times to have it automatically enrolled with the panel.

The method for faulting the sensor will vary between different types of devices. For example, a door/window contact can be faulted by separating its magnet from the sensor. A motion can be faulted by waving your hand in front of the lens. Other devices may have a tamper switch under the back cover that can be pressed in order to trigger a fault. Refer to the device's instruction manual for enrollment information.

After you fault and restore the device three times, three beeps will confirm that it was enrolled successfully. You will then be automatically taken back to the zone settings screen. The serial number for the device should be displayed under the "Serial Number" field.

Alternatively, you can also manually enter in the serial number for the device. Click on the "Serial Number" field, and then use the touch screen keypad to manually enter the serial number. Click "Done" when finished. The 7-digit serial number for a wireless sensor can usually be found on a white sticker somewhere on the device's circuit board.

3. Adjust the settings. Make any necessary changes to the device's settings. Click "Save" in the bottom-right corner of the screen when finished. Below is an outline of what each field on the zone settings screen refers to:

  • Serial Number: The serial number for the device. Set during enrollment.
  • Loop Number: Determines which function the device will perform. Some devices can be set to a different loop number in order to perform a different function. Check the instruction manual for the device to determine which loop number the sensor should be set to in order to work in the desired way.
  • Zone Descriptors 1 & 2: These fields serve as a way to name the device. When the panel speaks the zone, it will voice "(Zone Descriptor 1) + (Zone Descriptor 2) + (Device Type)". This provides an easy way for identifying which zone was faulted.
  • Device Type: The device type selected will determine which response types are available. A device type of "Smoke Detector" will not provide the same response type options as a device type of "Door"
  • Response Type: Determines what action will be taken when the sensor is activated. Response types depend somewhat on the device type selected.
  • Alarm Report: Determines whether or not an alert will be sent to a central monitoring station when the device is activated. The user must have a monitoring plan that includes central station monitoring to use this feature.
  • Chime: Determines whether or not the panel will make an audible chime when the sensor is activated while in the disarmed state.
  • Supervision: If enabled, the panel will provide a local alert, as well as a report to the monitoring station, when used, if the panel doesn't receive a check-in signal from the sensor for an extended period of time, usually 12 hours.

4. Test the sensor. Make sure that the sensor was programmed properly by testing it. The process for testing the sensor will vary between different types of devices. Some devices may require you to arm the system or put the system into a test mode prior to testing.
