hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to talk about how you can interlink multiple honeywell 6 combo combination smoke heat and carbon monoxide sensors by interlink i'm talking about the one go all go feature so this feature means that when you have multiple six combo devices as well as six smoke devices on your honeywell lyric alarm system and um one of them activates that is a six combo detects um high temperature smoke or carbon monoxide or your six smoke detects smoke or high heat one of the sensors activates then all the other sensors programmed on the system that also have the feature enabled will also activate these sensors have built-in 85 decibel 85 decibel sounders um and so having multiple multiple sensors activate it spreads the sound across the building further and it's more likely that the building occupants will be notified to the alarm um so this is important if you have a large home maybe you have a large business complex and um you have a sensor activated but then you might not hear it on the other side of the building well this will help ensure that everyone is notified because assuming you have your sensors placed out throughout the building which you should these are life safety sensors then people will be notified and they'll know to take action and they'll know to get out of the building so you can enable or disable this feature for each sensor individually so if you have a sensor that you don't want to include in this one go logo network then you can take it off the network by uh doing the toggle option which i'll show you in a second here but typically most users want to have this enabled for all their sensors just because there's a fire or carbon monoxide outbreak then it's important that everyone knows about it so you want to have as much notice as possible um i guess you could also include the the honeywell six siren in the one goal algo network those will also activate along with the panel sounder those are also 85 decibels in terms of sound volume but um this the six sirens i mean those are sirens that go along with the panels so it's it's to be expected that they would activate but um you could also consider them part of the network so really you'll have your six combos your six smokes your six sirens and your honeywell lyric alarm system they'll all be sounding their 85 decibel sounders if you need a lar a louder siren uh maybe 85 decibels just doesn't cut it i don't know you're an industrial complex or something and it's very loud then uh you might consider adding um a z-wave siren such as the qolsys iq siren which is 105 decibels and if that doesn't cut it for you then you can look into hardwired options maybe using a memo light z-wave relay so that's an option as well but um the point of having the one go all go it's like i said it's just to spread the sound out further you're not necessarily going to get a louder sound because it's all 85 decibels but by spreading it out with multiple devices throughout your building then you can help ensure that everyone's notified now we have one six combo enrolled with our lyric system it's already enrolled but i'm going to show you where the toggle option is for the one go logo so let's get us into the menu so we're at the main screen of our lyric now we're at the main screen of our lyric um we're going to choose security and we're going to choose tools and then we're going to enter in our installer code which ours is at the default of four one one two we're gonna choose program and then we're gonna press the down arrow here and we're gonna choose six programming that's for the six combo devices and the six smoke devices these are six series sensors so they're shown in six programming now you can see we have this six smoke uh slash co that's actually our six combo device so we're gonna be working with that so we're to click on it and we're going to choose edit we highlighted it blue and then we pressed edit that's how we got this menu and you see we have different services here that we can toggle on and off smoke heat and co co is carbon monoxide and we can choose alarm report for those options we want them all enabled otherwise the system wouldn't send out a signal to the the to alarm net um so it can reach the central monitoring station when there is an alarm so you generally want to have those enabled and there's also a verify option for smoke just to prevent false alarms if you have that enabled but what we're focusing on here now is the one go all go option down here at the bottom so if i press the green button here and then it turns gray i have turned one go all go off so if i had other six combo and or six smoke devices on the system and they were set up with one go all go this one had it gray like that then this sensor the one we have right here right right here today um it wouldn't activate um the other sensors would activate as long as we had them enabled for the one galago and of course the one that detects the smoke heat or carbon monoxide will activate but only the ones that have the one go all go option toggled on with the green which we'll toggle ours back on will activate so now that we toggled it back on that one will activate if another sensor if another um six series life safety sensor activated on the lyric system so if we had a six smoke program with our lyric system and we had it set up with one go logo we had this one on the one golgo network then that one would activate let's say we had a third one that didn't have the option on like uh like that if we had it gray then it wouldn't activate so you if you want it to be one go logo then um have that checked so um just kind of as a rule of thumb assuming you want all your devices on the one golgo network most people do then uh have it green if there's one device that maybe you don't want to be on one go i'll go for whatever reason you can set that device individually to off and the other ones can all be on to be part of the one go all go network but we want r is one go i'll go so we'll keep that on there and just as a reminder once you configure the one go all go setting to on or off depending on how you want to use it remember to press save in the bottom right corner so that way your your changes are saved we're going to do that now we saved our changes so that's the one go all go feature on the honeywell 6 combo it also applies to the honeywell 6 smoke um that's how you interlink the devices so that way they all activate and by activate i mean their sounders will trigger their 85 decibel sounders will trigger when one device detects smoke heat carbon monoxide whatever um even if that device uh doesn't detect anything if it's in a different room different area where it hasn't been activated another sensor on the system activates it sends the alert to the system the system says hey all these devices are one go logo and it activates all the other sensors as well so that all the building occupants can be notified so that's the one go all go feature on the six combo if you have any questions about the six combo or the lyric alarm system or about alarm
