Response Types for a Honeywell Lyric Alarm System



hi DIY hrus this is michael from alarm grid and today I'm gonna talk about response types on the honeywell lyric controller so first i want to cover a little bit about what response types are so when you have a sensor enrolled with a system and it's faulted let's say you open up a door and door window and the contact faults the sensor separates from magnet maybe a glass break sensor activates maybe a motion detector detects movement it's gonna trigger a response type on the system and the response type determines how the system responds when the says when the sensor is faulted so when you're programming sensors to your system you want to make sure you choose the correct response types or else the systems not going to give you the response that you want so make sure you program the correct response types and when you do this you're gonna have different response types available based on the device type that you choose so I'm gonna go into programming here on the our lyric system and I'm gonna enroll a sensor and I'm gonna show you some of the various response types I'm not gonna cover them in full detail we have an FAQ leaked a linked below on in the description that's gonna cover all the response types in full detail but I will show you the different options and how you can get to them but I'm gonna start by going into programming here and to do that we're gonna choose tools and we're gonna enter in our installer code which is at the default of 4 1 1 2 4 1 1 2 we're gonna go into program and we're gonna go into zones and then we're gonna go to add new and now we're at the screen where we can enroll a sensor so I'm gonna Auto enroll sensor we have a 5800 mini right here so I'm gonna do serial number and then I'm gonna trip it three times that's false at three times it should activate there we go I heard a beep right there so there's one there we go it shows it shows the the serial number and there we go so now it's some enrolled in so we have our device type set as door and that's going to give us various response types that we can choose from entry exit 1 and entry exit 2 are pretty popular ones those are one that when you fault the sensor while the systems armed away or armed stay you have to disarm within an entry delay period or else the system will go into alarm and you have some other response types available here perimeter will trigger an immediate alarm whether the systems armed away or armed stay so any armed mode if the sensor gets faulted it will trigger an immediate alarm we have some other response types here you can read our FAQ to understand them in full detail I'm not going to cover all of them but there is a special trick that you can use so as you can see we have our device type set as a door so that's only going to give us this limited selection of response types but let's say you want to get a different response type that's not under door well there's actually a trick you can do to where you can get pretty much any response type what you can do is you can change the device type and you can go down to other and then you'll have all the response types available for the system any response type that you would want so let's say you had a fire emergency exit door you can set it to you can set it to where as fire here we set to fire no verification and when the sensor is faulted it would trigger a fire alarm on the system you can set it to 24-hour audible and that could be like an intrusion door if someone opens that door whether the system's armed or disarmed that will trigger an immediate alarm on your system so you have plenty of options there so I'm setting it to other can be good if you want to get a very specific response type so I'm not gonna bother finishing rolling this sensor we're just showing for demonstration purposes but that is a good trick if you want to get all the response types just set it to other otherwise just you know you can choose the type that you need in our case we have a door so usually one of these would work pretty well but those are response types on the lyric system when you have a sensor fault on the system the response type determines how the system will respond so if you found this video helpful please give it a thumbs up below to like the video and remember to subscribe to our channel to get updates on future videos and if you have any questions shoot us an email at support at alarm grid comm and make sure to check out our website alarmgrid comm hope you enjoyed the video thanks
