Users looking to get started with home or small business security can get great use out of our Lyric 10-1 WIFI Kit. The kit comes with a new Honeywell Lyric System, ten (10) Honeywell 5800MINI Contacts, one (1) Honeywell SiXPIR Motion Sensor, and a Honeywell LT-Cable for providing power.
The Lyric represents one of the top security systems available today. It is a wireless all-in-one panel that can support up to 128 zones, which is more than enough for nearly any home or business. The system is operated using its 7-inch full-color touchscreen, which offers intuitive and responsive controls. You can program the entire system yourself without needing to hire an installer! You will be up and running in no time once you know the basic programming steps!
For wireless sensor support, the Lyric works with its own exclusive lineup of Honeywell SiX Series Sensors. It is also backwards compatible with older 345 MHz Honeywell 5800 Sensors. The SiX Sensor support is particularly important, as these sensors utilized military grade 128-bit AES encryption. This makes them virtually impossible for others to hack or takeover wirelessly. This kit is bundled with ten (10) Honeywell 5800MINI Contacts and one (1) Honeywell SiXPIR Motion Sensor. More sensors can also be added as needed.
Honeywell made it very easy to provide power to the Lyric System. A plug-in transformer comes included, and our bundled kit features a Honeywell LT-Cable for easy connecting. By using this 8-foot wire, you will not need to strip or prepare any wires, thereby making your installation as easy as possible. And if you add a Honeywell LCP500-DK Desk Mount (sold separately), you can complete the entire installation with just a screwdriver! All of the wireless sensors can be secured using the included double-sided foam tape.
Another important aspect of the Lyric is its ability to connect with the AlarmNet360 Servers for monitoring service. The Lyric has a built-in WIFI card for IP monitoring. But you will want to add a cellular communicator for ultimate reliability. Cellular communication is much more reliable, and it is not prone to sudden outages like internet service. Both the Honeywell LYRICLTE-A (AT&T LTE) and the Honeywell LYRICLTE-V (Verizon LTE) are great options. As for choosing between AT&T and Verizon, just go with whichever service works best in your area. Remember, you will need a cellular monitoring plan if you decide to use cellular service with the system. For Alarm Grid, this is the Gold plan (Self or Full) or higher.
A major benefit of getting your Lyric System monitored is that you will be able to control it remotely through Total Connect 2.0, provided that the service is included in your monitoring plan. This is possible whether you go with an IP-only setup or a dual-path setup with both IP and cellular. By accessing Total Connect 2.0 through a web browser or a mobile app on your phone, you can control your system in a number of different ways. You can arm and disarm your system, check its current status, and even control Z-Wave devices. And with the Total Connect 2.0 Mobile App, you can do all of this from pretty much anywhere in the world using your smartphone!
The Lyric is also sure to impress in terms of smart home automation. The system includes a built-in Z-Wave controller for supporting up to 72 Z-Wave devices. There are all sorts of automation devices you can add, including smart lights, door locks, programmable thermostats, and more. And with Total Connect 2.0, you can even set up smart scenes to have your Z-Wave devices activate automatically based on a set schedule or with certain system events.
If you are an iOS user, then you will certainly want to take advantage of the system's compatibility with Apple HomeKit. You can integrate your Lyric System in with your HomeKit network and have your HomeKit devices respond automatically based on predetermined system events. It is also possible to operate your Lyric System remotely using Siri voice commands sent from your iPhone. Just keep in mind that your Lyric System must be activated for monitoring to enable it with HomeKit. More information on the Lyric and HomeKit integration can be found here.
