If Internet Goes Down Will Lyric Security System Work?
The Honeywell Lyric Controller Security System comes with a built in WiFi communicator. If the internet goes down the Lyric Controller will continue to work locally but no signals will be sent to the central station or Total Connect 2.0.
It’s recommended that users install a battery backup for the modem and router in case of a power outage (and only a power outage), the Lyric Controller will still be able to communicate and send signals.
The most secure way to have an alarm panel communicate, is dual communication. Dual Communication is when the alarm panel is connected to two communicators such as a WiFi module and a GSM cellular communicator. The Lyric Controller’s compatible GSM cell communicator is the Lyric-3g (AT&T) and theLyric-CDMA (Verizon). Using dual communication ensures signals being sent. If for any reason the internet goes down and or loses power, the Lyric-3g or Lyric CDMA cell communicator will kick in and send any alarm signals.
The Lyric Controller has a built in WiFi module so no installation is needed. To install the Lyric-3g GSM or the Lyric-CDMA cell communicator, open the side panel, insert the communicator and secure with the included screw. Replace the side panel.
Activating the WiFi module allows customer to be connected to a monitoring station and Total Connect 2.0. Honeywell/AlarmNet dealers are the only ones who can register and activate the Lyric Controller’s WiFi module and or Lyric-3g cell communicator. Users will need to provide the MAC ID and CRC numbers from both the communicators to be registered.
The Lyric Controller Security System is a self contained alarm system and home automation system. The Lyric Controller has a built in Zwave module which supports up to 72 Zwave devices, including 6 thermostats and 6 door locks.
