hi-dee-hi wires this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to show you how to pair the t6 pro z-wave thermostat with the lyric controller now there are actually two versions of the t6 Pro there's a z-wave Plus version and there is a Wi-Fi version the Wi-Fi version is for use with home kit which the lyric is also compatible with but you don't directly pair that with the lyric you can only pair the t6 Pro if it's the z-wave version with the lyric only the z-wave version can pair with the residual lyric controller so it's a pretty simple process we like this thermostat a lot because it can be used without a/c wire a common power wire you can actually use it just on battery power alone which is great for DIY installers do they might not want to mess with the high voltage electrical wiring all you have to do is just connect it to the HVAC system and then it's good to go now one thing to keep in mind if you do have it running on battery power only which is perfectly fine it will not repeat z-wave signals now usually when you have z-wave devices the the z-wave signals can hop through other devices they can make through up to four hops and that strengthens your z-wave mesh network and it's good for ensuring that every device communicates properly but if you don't use the common power wire you just use battery power you won't be able to have it hop through those devices I mean it'll still work fine on your network and everything but it won't serve as a z-wave repeater so it won't strengthen your mesh network so that's just something to keep in mind if you do decide to use the t6 Pro z-wave plus thermostat now pairing it is very easy it's pretty much like any z-wave device we actually have it paired with another lyric system in our office one right next to my desk actually because I like to keep the temperature low in the office and we're all fighting with the thermostat so I have it right there I can just go in the lyric press the button and turn down the temperature it's really cool so I'm gonna show you how to do it today first we're gonna have to exclude it because it's already paired with the other lyric controller it's not paired with this system so first I'm gonna show you how to put the lyric into the exclusion mode and then you can put the t6 Pro into exclusion mode and then it will exclude from the system that it's paired with already so what you're going to do you're going to go to automation from the main menu and then you're going to press the down arrow on the right and you're going to go to tools and then you would go to exclude devices now we're gonna go to the t6 Pro first and put it into exclusion mode and then we'll press this button and then you'll see that it excludes a device so now you see we're at the t6 Pro z-wave plus thermostat so it's very simple you just count the screen to activate it you go to menu and then you scroll until you find z-wave setup you press select at the bottom and then you'll see it'll say exclude and whatever note it's on this one's happens to be on note 13 and you just press select and now it'll enter exclusion mode so as you can see I press the exclusion button on lyric and it went into exclusion mode and you see it says unknown device excluded that unknown device is actually the t6 pro thermostat so you see it excessively excluded now you don't have to press the exclude button down there if you do that that will just put it back into exclusion mode so you don't want to do that so what you'll do is you'll just press this back arrow and now we're actually going to include the device so what you'll do is you'll activate inclusion mode on the t6 it's the same process as before and you'll press include devices to put the lyric into inclusion mode and you'll see that it pairs with the system and now we're back at the t6 Pro z-wave plus thermostat tap on the screen again menu it'll scroll to z-wave setup select and now it's asking us to put the controller into inclusion mode so we're gonna do that at the lyric and now we're pressing include devices on the same menu is entering a conclusion mode and you see that the device was found and we're done and as you can see it added the thermostat to the z-wave Network and we're good to go and again you don't have to press the include button down there that will just put the lyric back into inclusion mode the thermostats already paired you don't need to do that so we'll go back and let me just show you a little bit how it works you see thermostat on here and that's actually the thermostat right there are 231 and we can change the temperature we like it at 71 in the office so we'll just keep it right there one other thing we wanted to show you that you know you can control it from the panel the T 6 from the panel you can also do it from Total Connect that's the interactive platform that you can access remotely using the mobile app or you can get on to the Total Connect website as you can see we've already logged in to the Total Connect mobile app and so what you're going to do is you're going to go down to automation and then it's going to give you the thermostat in our case we haven't named it yet it's still called thermostat 232 and you can click on it and you can adjust the temperature there there's a plus and a minus we have our set to Celsius but you can set it to thermos to Fahrenheit that's somewhere else actually but we just want to show you what that looks like real quick it's a good feature if you're away from home and you wanted to change the temperature you can also set schedules from there we'll show you that in another video but anyway back to the lyric here if you want to give your thermostat a name like you want to have it something that you can remember what you would do is you will go to automation and then we're working with a thermostat and then you click on the thermostat again see it's thermostat 232 right now but we're gonna name that something else here you can change the temperature and set modes and stuff what you're going to do if you want to rename it though you're gonna do edit and then you can call it whatever you want here and all ok our case will clear everything away and we'll do hallway thermostat hallway there's it to either ok hallway and we'll just call it T stat just to be quick there and then once you've finished naming it make sure you press Save in the bottom right corner otherwise it won't take the change and then it will be saved as such and that will update on Total Connect once you do a panel sync and we'll go back to the main menu here and all right that's how you program the Honeywell t6 Pro z-wave thermostat with the lyric controller if you have any questions about the
