How Do I Factory Default My Resideo Lyric Controller?

You can factory default your Resideo Lyric Controller by loading the Default Configuration for the system. After defaulting the Lyric System, the Installer Code will be restored to 4112, all zones will be cleared, the panel time will be reset, and all system settings will be reset.

In the past, one of the main reasons for defaulting a Lyric Controller is that on older firmware versions, MR7 or earlier, when the Lyric was activated through AlarmNet for monitoring and then cancelled, a panel default was required to re-activate monitoring. This was the case even if the original monitoring company was the one reactivating service. If a customer wished to move their monitoring service from one alarm dealer to another, a default was also required.

In the case of moving from one alarm dealer to another, this meant the panel would need to be completely re-programmed, and all SiX Series devices would need to be paired with the system again. With the enhancements provided in firmware version MR8, a panel default is no longer required to initiate a panel account association. A panel default may still be recommended if the panel is exhibiting abnormal behavior, or if a previously used panel is being set up in a new location. To check the firmware version of your Lyric, check out step 3 of this FAQ.

All of the Lyric System settings will be restored to their factory default after you load the default configuration. If you would like to see a complete list of all the of the system's factory default values, please check Page 30 of the Lyric Controller Installation Guide. There is no real way to undo a default after it is performed. However, if you have an upload of the previous programming in AlarmNet360, then you can have the old programming information pushed back down to the panel. Remember, this is only possible if you have alarm monitoring service and the monitoring company has an upload of the old programming.

Please note that when you factory default a Lyric System, any encrypted SiX Series Sensors that are enrolled with the system will be released. The SiX Series Sensors must be powered on and within wireless range of the system to receive the signal to know that they are released. This is true for every SiX Series device, except for the SiXFOB Key Fob.

With the SiXFOB, you must make a single input any time after the default has occurred. This is done by pressing any button on the key fob. The input must occur within range of the Lyric System. The Lyric will then tell the SiXFOB that it is no longer enrolled, and that it can be paired with either a new Lyric Panel, or back with the newly defaulted panel. Any SiX Sensor that is not powered up and/or not within range of the Lyric will need to be defaulted manually so that it knows it's free. The ability to default any of these devices is only available for a limited time (usually 24 hours) once a SiX Series device has been paired with a Lyric. See the linked document for details.

Also note that defaulting a Lyric System will disassociate it from its AlarmNet360 account. The system will re-associate once it connects again. You can manually request account association by pressing Security > Tools > Installer Code (default is 4112) > New Panel Association. Monitored Lyric panels that are defaulted and will then be re-associated with the same AlarmNet360 account will have all their prior programming downloaded back into the panel automatically. After this is complete, use the SiX Programming Feature to pair any SiX Series devices with the panel again.

If you want to load a Default Configuration and restore your Lyric Security System to default values, complete the following steps:

1. Access programming. Begin from the main screen of the system. Choose Security > Tools > Installer Code (default is 4112) > Program. You have now accessed programming.

2. Choose Default Configuration. Press the down arrow on the ride side. Select Default Config. Then answer Yes when asked if you are sure. The panel will then restore its settings to the factory default.

3. Exit programming. Repeatedly press the return arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen until you are taken back to the main menu. You will need to provide the default Installer Code of 4112 if you want to reenter programming again later.
