Description

There are circumstances that may arise when you will need to remove a key fob from your Lyric security system. Certain aspects like firing an employee from your business, or a housekeeper from your home and they don’t turn in the key fob right away.

Other examples would be if a family member lost their key fob, you would want to remove it from the system so someone else doesn’t have access to your home and can by pass your security.

This video will show you how to use the Lyric control panel to delete a learned in key fob from the system. We have another video that will teach you how to enroll a key fob in to the system, if you need to learn how to do that.

To remove a key fob from the Lyric Security System, you will need to access the tools menu using the installer code. Once you enter the installer code you will need to press Program followed by the Keys sub menu option.

On this screen you will see all enrolled key fobs that have already been added to your system. You need to locate the key fob that you want to delete and highlight it by pressing on the panel for that key fob.

As you will see in the video the next step is simply to press the delete button on the bottom of the screen. Once you do, a pop up message will appear asking you to confirm. You have two options at this point that the video will discuss in detail.

The first option is to simply press yes and be done. You can return to the home screen and that key fob will no longer be associated with your system. This is the option you want to use if you have lost your key fob or if it has been stolen.

The second option is to hit yes on the pop up message and then press and hold any button on the key fob for 5 seconds.

Doing the second option will clear the key fob from the system but allow it to be reused on another system in the future. Failing to press the button on the key fob will prevent the Lyric SIXFOB from ever being used anywhere, again.

Before you return to the home screen you need to be sure which option you will use. The video will go in to great detail about both options and give examples and reasons why you would use each one.

Once the key fob has been removed you can return to the home screen. The key fob will no longer work to arm or disarm your system, and if it is lost or stolen, no one else will be able to use it on your system or any other Lyric system in the future.

Hi DIYers. Sterling with Alarm Grid here and today, we're going to show you how to delete your LKF500 key fob from your Lyric security system.

So, as we've described before about key fobs, they're very handy because they give you one touch arming-disarming capabilities. If you just went to the grocery store, you're in your driveway, you're getting all your bags out, you have your keys in your hand to open the door, right before you open the door just a simple button press has disarmed your system. And now you don't have to rush in, open the door, rush to the key pad and disarm the system. Same idea if you're leaving and you've got your hands full, as soon as you close your door and you're outside, you can just press a button and arm the system.

So it just makes for a nice convenience feature. However, by adding the convenience you're open your system up to a security risk. If this key fob gets into the wrong hands, now someone that shouldn't have access to the house can get in without knowing your user codes. So it's very important that you keep track of where this is, and that if you have it on your keys or you keep it in your pocket or you leave it by your night stand, whatever it is, you make sure that if you ever lose this that you delete it from the system as soon as possible so that you're not left wondering if someone has the ability to come in and disarm your system without a code. It's very important to know how to delete this if you do misplace your LKF500.

With the deletion of any Lyric system...I'm sorry, with the deletion of any Lyric sensor, it's a little bit different than you're used to on the old Honeywell systems, if you've ever used a LYNX Touch, LYNX Plus or a Vista panel with a receiver. Because Lyric devices can only be enrolled to one system and one system only, once this device has been deleted, if it hasn't been deleted in the proper mode, this sensor is basically trash. It will never work with anything else. So, dependent on why you lost it or why you're wanting to delete it, it's important that you delete it in the right way if you want to use the sensor again.

If you've lost the sensor, then it doesn't really matter. Just delete it from the panel and you know that even if someone's got this, they can't use your system and they can't even use this device with any other system. So it's not like they would steal it to use it on their own, all right? So I'm going to show you the process to delete it.

From the Home screen, you hit Security followed by Tools, followed by 4112. And while on this screen, if we hit Save it's trying to connect to the server. The Honeywell Lyric always wants to be a monitored system, all right? Works best when monitored, all features are available when monitored. If you're not yet monitored, the first thing it wants to do is associate with an alarm net account, associate with an account at the server level. Unless you're going through a monitoring provider, you as an end user will not have the ability to set that up. So just hit No if you're not monitored. If you are monitored, then this should already be done, and you won't see this screen. Or if you see this screen, it's because you're working with your monitoring provider to associate the account.

In our case we're not yet associated so we just hit No. And when we hit Program, we go to keys. And this fob's all ready been programmed. If we were to double press the top two buttons, because we're getting this flashing double green, that means it's all ready been learned in. If this fob hadn't been learned in, pressing those buttons would give us an alternating green light. So that's a quick way to say hey, has this device been programmed to somebody else?

Of course, it's been programmed here so it's acting like it's been programmed. We're getting the flashing green. And to delete it, we highlight the entire grouping of buttons, so we just highlight the fob and we click Delete. Now we're prompted with the second magic step that I described earlier. On a 5834 sensor you just delete it and it's gone, and that fob can be used somewhere else. That fob could be programmed to 10 systems, and you can delete it from just one. With this one, it's only programmed to one system, and until it's been deleted properly from that system, it will never be able to be used with any other system.

So if someone lost their fob, it's important to delete it. And now you know it's out there, someone has it but they can't use it with anything, your system, or anybody else's system. If you're deleting it because you want to give it to a neighbor or a friend or a family member, or you want to return it to your person that you bought it from, to properly and fully delete it from your system you have to hit Yes. And then you have to press and hold any button on the fob in range of the panel. That puts it into this rapid flashing, and now it's fully deleted. When we press and hold the top two, we get those alternating flashing LEDs I described, which let us know that this is no longer associated with the panel, and is ready to be associated with somebody else.

So, that's a very important qualifying aspect of how this Lyric key fob works differently than the 5800 series devices. If this was not available in range of the panel, you really would never be able to use this device again because you have to be in range, you have to delete it, and then press the button to clear it out, ready to be enrolled to something else. Again, it depends on why you lost it, or where you lost it, or why you're deleting it. That is the process to delete it, and that's the extra bit of information about how to delete it properly in case you want to use this with a different system.
