Which Locks Work with the Lyric Gateway?
The Honeywell Lyric Gateway is compatible with Z-Wave locks manufactured by Yale and Kwikset. Z-Wave lock models fully compatible with the Lyric Gateway include the Kwikset 910, the Yale YRD210, and the Yale YRD220. These locks can replace an existing deadbolt or be installed in a new door.
These locks are available in Polished Brass, Satin Nickel or Oil Rubbed Bronze. The product ships with step by step instructions on how to install the lock. All the Z-Wave locks can be programmed to interact with the system. A few popular examples of personalized programming for the locks include having the locks disarm the security system when a user code is entered at the lock. Another is to have the locks arm the security system when locked.
The Kwikset 910 is the least expensive of the lock options offered. This lock is a push button deadbolt with a re-key feature. The re-key feature lets you key the lock to any compatible key you own.
The Yale YRD210 is a Z-Wave, pushbutton deadbolt. Comparatively, this lock is more expensive than the Kwikset 910 and less expensive than the Yale YRD220.
The Yale YRD220 is the most expensive lock option offered. Its deadbolt has a large touch screen with backlit numbered keys.
The Lyric Gateway has a built in Z-Wave plus controller. This is the radio that Z-Wave devices interface when communicating with the Lyric. The Lyric is only able to communicate with home automation devices that use the Z-Wave protocol and are also compatible with the Lyric controller. It’s recommended to have the controller within a few feet of the lock when enrolling it to the system. These locks are battery powered, so this can be easily done before installing the lock into a door.
Most Z-Wave devices will act as repeating nodes. This means is that a Z-Wave device can support another Z-Wave device as long as it's within its communication bubble. The new Z-Wave device extends the range of the Z-Wave network, as its communication bubble can be used to connect other Z-Wave devices. This conveniently lets a user build out a Z-Wave network throughout their house. Locks DO NOT act as repeatable nodes and will not support any other Z-Wave devices.
