hey Dai wires Jer with alarmgrid here today we're going to talk about how you would activate the panic mode on the Honeywell lyric system if you ever wanted to activate the panic mode in the honeywell lyric what you'll do is just tap you're gonna press and hold actually the little circle button with the exclamation point at the bottom left of your honeywell lyric screen and this is gonna pull up the panic options that you have set up now the panic options you can have it set to for a fire panic a police panic medical or even set up a local alarm now these zones or these panic options are actually assigned to specific zones which even within the programming of the alarm system and they're assigned to zones 995 through 999 and you can even change these zones anytime you want to if you you know if you needed to switch everything around you just go into the zone programming and you're gonna have to go to the very bottom where you know you'll see zones 995 through 999 what you'll be able to change those up however you want them to wherever you want them to be now when you're setting up these zones if you were to change the response type to none or not used then that specific zone or that panic option is not going to show up in the panic menu so when you're preston holding this blood and as you see the panic options come up if you have any of them set is not used for the response type they're not going to show up you're only you're only going to see the ones that are set to be able to work whenever you do press that panic option or that panic button now if you ever wanted to UM or actually there are different ways to be able to set off a panic for the honeywell lyric instead of you know going here locally in the system you can set up key fobs with the system as well normally you know a lot of our customers do set that up too if you wanted to i'm you can use either the honeywell 5830 for - for a key fob or the honeywell 6 fob and you can set up any of the buttons on the key fobs to set off a panic but normally the panic option or the panic button is set up for the star button that you will see on that key fob and normally when you when you press and hold that you could trigger the panna cotta or the panic on the Honeywell lyric so there is no option for a panic button if you wanted to set that up it is a fixed panic button these are the ones where you would normally set up in like bangs your convenience stores where you would have them hiding underneath the desk in case there was a robbery or anything like that now that panic button is called the Honeywell 5860 nine this is you know just a fixed panic button that stays in one location and if you ever needed or if there was ever a situation you need to depress that panic button expressed immediately and it'll trigger the alarm on the alarm system you can have police dispatching now just keep in mind very important that if you ever are trying to set up or trigger not set up but if you were trying to ever trigger one of these panic buttons or the panic option the lyric you cannot do it while the system is is inside of system programming you have to make sure that the system is that the main menu as it is right now so that it can trigger the panics so if you want to activate the panic mode on the Honeywell lyric system you're just going to follow these simple steps so step one is to look for the the panic button it's going to be the circle with the exclamation point in the on the inside and it's going to be in the bottom left of the lyric screen so you're just going to tap and hold that for a couple seconds and it's going to bring up the panic buttons so step two would be choosing the panic button II that you would need at this in the situation as you can see right now we have fire police and local alarm setup and also another thing to keep in mind that if you're not you know touching anything in the panic option or the panic menu then it is going to take you back to the main screen but that's the second step is to choose the panic option or the panic button the panic mode you're gonna need at the time so now just keep in mind that when you are you know pressing any of these panic modes it is going to send the signal over to the Central Station but you will need to have active monitoring in order for the police to be dispatched immediately so just as a side note about the local alarm panic mode option this basically you should just to trigger an audible siren on the honeywell lyric system it's not meant to send any alarm signals over to the Central Station this is basically just for you to trigger the alarm so let's intruder we're break-in and you want to either try to scare the intruder away or you wanted to try it or you wanted to notify anybody locally there at the premise that there's something going on so if that were the case then you would trigger or you would go to the system tap on the local alarm button and you'll immediately trigger that alarm and Simon's gonna go off it will be loud so just keep that in mind but at least you do have that option if you didn't wants to try if you didn't want to send any signals to the center station at the current time now for these panic modes I'm you can have them set up in different ways whether it - whether it be a 24-hour silent panic where when you tap it it's not gonna trigger the alarm or trigger the siren and then there is the 24-hour auxiliary auxilary a bad and that is going to trigger the siren on the on the alarm system so another thing that I want to point out is early in the video I mentioned that if you don't have any of the zones set up as not used or if you have any zones that are set up as not used so they're not going to show up in the panic mode option or the panic moment menu so as you see we have fire police and local alarm but there's no medical that's because we have the medical zone set is not used so it's not going to show up within that the panic menu but if that was set up then you will be able to see that so now for instance let's say you need a police dispatch so you're gonna press and hold the button and you're gonna tap on police it's gonna take you back to the main menu and it's gonna actives if nothing is happening with the alarm system you know normal thief would probably not you know realize that anything is happening but right now as you can see on the top it says not ready to arm this is actually sending out the alarm signal currently right now we don't we don't have a setup to send out the alarm signal but if you were to ever tap that it's going to send the signals immediately to the Central Station and they'll be able to act accordingly and dispatch the police accordingly now step three is disarming the system so once everything is taken care of and you no longer need that panic mode going off anymore you're just going to press security you're going to disarm the system you're going to type in the master code and you have just now disabled the panic mode on the Honeywell lyric system and that is how you would activate the panic mode on the honeywell lyric alarm system if you have any further questions about the Honeywell lyric or alarm systems in general please contact us at support alarmgrid comm or go to our website along good comm if you found this video helpful please like and subscribe if you want notification of future videos please click the bell icon that's jarett with alarmgrid your self a great day
