How Do I Program a Z-Wave Lock into a Lyric Security System?

You can program a Z-Wave lock into a Lyric Security System through the panel's automation menu. The entire process involves clearing the lock, programming the lock, installing the lock and testing the lock. A Z-Wave lock can be controlled both from the Lyric System and from Total Connect.


Complete the following steps to set up a Z-Wave lock for use with a Lyric Controller:

1. Clear the lock. It is very common for a Z-Wave lock to be paired with a Z-Wave network before it even leaves the factory. This is often done for testing purposes. With this in mind, a Z-Wave lock should always be cleared from the Z-Wave network before attempting to enroll it with the Lyric Controller.

To clear a Z-Wave lock from the Z-Wave network, start by bringing the lock to the Lyric Controller. Then, from the home screen of the Lyric Controller, go to Automation > down arrow > Tools > Exclude Devices. This will put the Lyric Controller in its Z-Wave exclusion mode.

With the Lyric in this mode, activate the inclusion function on the lock itself. Some locks have an inclusion button on the back of the device. But others will require you to enter in a specific code on the keypad. Consult the instruction manual for the lock if you are unsure of how to activate its inclusion function. After the inclusion function has been activated, the Lyric should display a message stating that a device has been removed from the network.

2. Enroll the lock. Now that the lock has been removed from the Z-Wave network, it can be enrolled with the Lyric Controller. From the Exclusion Screen on the Lyric, press the return arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen. Then choose "Include Devices". The Lyric will enter into inclusion mode.

With the Lyric in its inclusion mode, activate the inclusion function on the lock. This is the same process that was used when excluding the lock from the network. Once the function on the lock has been activated, the Lyric Controller should display a message stating that the lock has been enrolled.

You will then have the opportunity to name the lock that has been enrolled. Most users give the lock a name that is easy for them to recognize, such as "Front Door" or "Side Door".

3. Install the lock. With the lock included with the Lyric Controller, it can now be installed into the door. The old lock must be removed, and the new lock will be put in its place. The actual process for installing the lock will depend upon the type of lock that is being used. Consult the manual for the lock for more information regarding the installation process.

4. Test the lock. From the Inclusion Screen on the Lyric, press the return arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen. Then press this same arrow second time. Then choose "Locks". The lock that was enrolled should be displayed on the screen. Click on it. You will then be able to click on the lock in order to lock and unlock your door. Make sure that your door is able to successfully lock and unlock. If the door is able to lock and unlock from the panel, then the Z-Wave lock was enrolled and installed successfully.
