Program SiXMINICT to Lyric Controller


hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to enroll the 6 mini ct door and window contact sensor with the honeywell lyric alarm system the honeywell 6 mini ct it's an encrypted door and window sensor that's a miniaturized version of the 6 ct the smaller door and window contact is appealing to some users because it is less noticeable on the door window frame but the trade-off is that it doesn't have as far of a wireless range as the six ct which is a little bit larger we actually have the other one right here you can see by comparison the six mini ct is mini so um if you want the smaller one then this is the option but the range isn't as long um the 6 ct has 300 nominal feet and this one has about 200 nominal feet so but if you're using it in a smaller home or your range isn't really an issue you have a centralized panel then um you know it really won't matter just remember that obstacles thick walls large metal objects can reduce range there is no repeater for six sensors so you can't repeat the signal so that's about all you're going to get and also the other trade-off is that this one does not have an auxiliary input it doesn't have a terminal block for connecting a hard-wired door and window contact and using this as a wireless transmitter you can't do that with the six mini ct you can only use it as a traditional door and window contact sensor but uh we're going to enroll ours today um the first thing i'm going to do i'm going to open up the sensor just so we can get a look at the led a little bit um here usually i just pop it off well that doesn't work there we go this side right there and then we can take it off and we can access the cr240 or tcr2450 battery lithium three volt um you should only have to change that every few years with regular usage but um we see ours right now the leds blinking quickly because it's not enrolled um so we're going to enroll ours today and the lyric has a special six programming mode where we can do exactly that so we're at the main screen of our lyric and we're gonna choose security we're gonna choose tools we're going to enter in our installer code which ours is at the default of four one one two and we're gonna press program and we're gonna press the down arrow and then we're gonna choose six programming and now the lyric is looking for um a sixth sensor to added system uh there are a few things you can do to send a transmission signal uh you can if you're using it for the first time there'll be a battery tab that you can pull to power on the sensor you can also press the tamper switch here um let's try removing the battery let's let's do that so we got a screwdriver just to pull it out there we didn't let it fall to the floor which is great and we're gonna push it back in and that did not power it on um let's try pressing the tamper button here and see if that gets the light going there we go we got the light going so now we just have to wait for it to show up on the lyric and there we go we have our six mini ct here you can confirm the serial number um we lost our sticker actually but if you do want to check then you can make sure um but we're going to edit the zone settings now so we have it highlighted blue and we're going to click edit and then um because it's a contact sensor um it gives us the option screen here um if we were using the regular six ct we would also be able to configure the terminal block um but we don't have that we just only have the option of the read switch which we can disable if we wanted to but then we really wouldn't be using the sensor but we'll keep ours um enabled by having the the circle green so we're going to choose edit and now we're configuring the zone settings so the serial number we confirmed that that it was auto enrolled it was fine uh service read switch that's how we want to use the sensor so that one's fine the zone descriptors serve as the name for the sensor um and they'll also be spoken out along with the device type um if you have voice enabled on the panel um so in this case it would read front door um and we can also do a second zone descriptor if we want to um but let's say we wanted to add in a second zone descriptor and we wanted to call it uh living room laundry or we'll we'll go with laundry why not front laundry front laundry door that's what it's going to read out when we uh fault the sensor later um so remember it will read the device type so you don't need to add front door door that would be silly so it'll be your front laundry door and then uh we we need to do the response type um the response types uh how the system responds when the sensor is faulted um so this is a very important setting uh the most popular option really uh for a door it's uh the entry exit ones so those mean that if the system's armed that is armed stay or armed away or even armed night and you fault the sensor then you'll have to disarm the system within an entry delay period or else the system will go into alarm mode so the entry delay period gives you a chance to disarm to set your stuff down to you know take care of what you need to you only have like a minute or so but you can change the setting um but that's a different topic um just make sure you give yourself enough of an entry delay time so so that's a popular one perimeter is also an option uh that's commonly used for windows um perimeter means that if the system's armed and you fault this sensor then it will go into a media alarm um you won't have a chance to disarm with the entry delay period um so if someone's coming and going through the window which isn't normal well who am i going to judge if you use the window that's fine but most people don't so if you um set its perimeter and that's your window and then someone opens up the window while the system's armed it'll go into an immediate alarm and the system will take action by uh sending out a signal as long as you have um alarm report enabled right there which we want ours to be enabled so if you have alarm report turned off then that means the system won't send out an alarm signal when this zone causes an alarm on the system when assuming you have the system monitored it can communicate with alarmnet which which then forwards the signal to total connect and or a central monitoring station total connect can send you an alert via text and or email and the monitoring station they have highly trained dispatchers who will try and contact you to make sure everything's all right if they don't get a response or you're not able to provide your false alarm passcode then they'll send out automatic emergency dispatch in most cases depending on the settings on your account but we want to have alarm report enabled in our case we have a chime option which can be used just as a little sound to let you know that the front laundry door has been opened um so that this can be like something even when your system's disarmed it will make that sound supervision so um this sensor regardless of whether you have supervision enabled or not it will still be sending out continuous check-in signals with the panel what supervision determines is whether or not the panel is listening for those signals when you have it supervised the panel is going to be expecting a check-in signal every 60 minutes and you actually see the setting down here and you can't change it it's actually grayed out and if i'm pressing it nothing happens so we can't do anything with that but we can change supervised or unsupervised if we want to but the sensor's sending out check-in signals regardless it's just a matter of is the system listening for them and if it is then it's going to resp expect the response every 60 minutes if the system doesn't receive a check-in signal uh maybe because the sensor is out of range or because it's been powered down because somebody removed the battery then you'll get an rf supervision loss trouble so in our case we want ours to be supervised so we're done with all these settings so we'll choose save and we'll press save again and then we see our sensor here we're going to show you in the zone settings as well so we're back in programming here i just want to close the sensor real quick we have the battery right here and we have the circular part there and we just align them and then we can just click it into place like so and our sensor is closed and we have a magnet right here we have an indentation on on the side of the sensor right here to simulate the door being closed so right now our door is closed and i'll be demonstrating opening it in a second but first uh let's go and look in our zones and we can see our front laundry door is on zone three it's right there we have um we have a battery signal and a signal strength as well so we can see that our zone is there now we're going to go back to the main screen by repeatedly pressing the arrow in the upper right corner and the home button and we're at the main screen of the system and so right now our laundry our front laundry door is closed and so when i open the magnet uh when i open the door the magnet's going to separate from the sensor and we'll get the fault on the system so let's demonstrate front there so we have a fault at our front laundry door and if i go to the home the security screen you can see that it's open right now open zone number three front laundry and then if i close it we've closed the door and we've restored it and now we're ready to arm again now just one last time let me turn it this way and so we're going to open up our launch our front laundry door front laundry door and there we go our zone is open and restored we've closed the door so that's how you enroll a six mini ct door and window contact
