Setting Up The 5800C2W with a Lyric Controller


I do is go from a long ride and today we're gonna talk about setting up the 5800 c2w with a leer controller now there's a bunch of reasons which you may want to do this one of the main ones is if you have an existing wired panel in the house and you want to continue to use the wired zones that are attached to the panel but you're replacing the panel entirely and replacing it with the lyric controller what the 5800 c2w is going to allow you to do is land nine hardwired zones onto the 5800 c2w and then program them wirelessly in to the Lear controller so let's cover the 5800 c2w first and then we're going to show you how to program it into the system so right here we do have a 5100 C 2w this works on the 345 megahertz frequency which all the 5800 devices also do work on and they are compatible and it is compatible with the lyric controller as you can see it the board does have a bunch of terminals on it these terminals down here or we're going to be able to land your zones the device itself is going to be able to take nine hardwired zones and program them into the lyric system it also has your DC power input it gets 15 point 5 volts DC from its provided transformer that you will get in the box when you order it and it also has a power output that you can use to power some devices it doesn't provide a lot of power though so it's not really recommended to be used as a main power source for DC power devices there's a few things that you're going to want to check though before you do install the 5800 c2w if your wired system is currently working and it's on we do recommend that you go around the house and you open and close all the doors and windows activate the motions and find out what zone number all the zones are so that you can correspond them to those zones that you want on the 5800 c2w and even label them before you place them on the unit after you power down your main system it's going to be kind of tricky to figure out which wire is which and this will save you that step there's another thing that you can do is that if the power cable or the power wire that provides the AC or DC power to your main wired system works you can actually continue to use that wire you just have to undo the transformer at one end of it and then obviously take it off of your an alarm system connected to your 5100 c2w connect the 5800 c2 w's transformer to the younger other end of that power cable and it will be able to provide a power there's a couple things that you may also be able to take from your main alarm system one of the main ones is resistors on the 5800 CTW the way that it actually sees that a zone is connected to one of the terminals is that it needs to have a 1 to 10 K resistor attached the unit does ship with 9 2.2 K resistors which will work if you don't have them available but if you do find that there is that the the existing alarm wiring does have resistors attached to it in your main alarm cabinet then you can simply take those wires off of the terminals put them on the 5800 c2w and it will work just fine there's one of the other important things to know about the 5100 c2w is that it reports all of its trouble conditions on the first zone that's calibrated so there's nine zones on the 5800 c2w and when you install all of your wiring the lowest numbered zone is gonna be your first zone calibrated which will send the trouble signals to your alarm panel this can get confusing to some customers if you don't know exactly what to look for how this will show up is that let's say you installed just one single zone on the 5800 see 2w as you can see we shunted zone number one with the resistor just to show this this process this is now seen as closed so and I go to calibrate this that's going to be the first calibrated zone when I program the 5800 c2w into the system all the trouble conditions are gonna report on that zone so if I have that zone label that's front door it could get confusing it that says front door tamper or front door AC loss or front door low battery it doesn't mean at the front door itself has a low battery that means that the trouble condition is actually on the 50 at 100 c2w and it's just using that zone to report if you don't want this to show up like that in your main alarm system you can actually program the first numbered zone into the system with loop number 4 and as you can see the serial number for the 5800 c2 double was on this sticker right here we're gonna show you how to program this end of the system in a minute because you're not going to use that explicit serial number there are actually different numbers that you use from zones one through nine you're just going to add those numbers on to the zero that you see at the end will show that you will show you this on the lyric in just a moment something else you can do with your existing installation is that the 5100 c2w can mount and your existing alarm cabinet or most alarm cabinets but you probably won't want to put it in there because the metal enclosure is going to Shump the signal existing alarm if it does use a 12 volt 4 amp hour battery you can continue to use that as a backup battery for the 5100 c2w and you can keep or it's recommended to keep that in the existing alarm cabinet as it makes installation easy we just recommend that you install the 5800 c2w right outside of the cabinet and then you can simply route the power wire for the battery into the cabinet which will give it that backup power the last thing know about the 5800 c2w is that if you have a requirement of more than nine hardwired zones to program into your system you can use as many 5800 cgw as you like you just need to have different ones for all the other zones you're going to use multiple 5800 C 2 WS they're all going to need their own power transformer and they will need their own backup battery so now as you can see we have zone 1 closed on the 5800 c2w let's see how to program this zone into our lyric system now we're ready to program the 5100 c2w into our lyric controller we are going to want to do a couple things on the 5800 c2w first though before we program it in so on our device you can see that there's this there's two buttons right here the second button down is our calibration button and what that's going to do is going to tell the 5800 CTW witches owns are connected to it now it's only gonna read the zones that do have a one 10k resistor connected to it and those owns do have to be closed so if you are installing your zones on the 5100 cgw and you have an open door window it won't read that as a zone but as you can see we only have one zone shunted out with a 2-point 2k resistor on Zone one I did calibrate it before but to go through the process I'll do it again so I clicked the calibration button it goes through and the first light turning green means that it's calibrated this means that the CTW sees that it only has one zone connected to it now when we go to program it into our system the zones actually go from 1 through 9 so as you can see the serial number 0 3 4 3 5 1 0 this number we're gonna have to add 1 to if you're programming it manually or as we're going to do we're going to learn it in it's going to show up as 0 3 4 3 5 1 1 zone 2 would be 1 2 so on 3 would be 1 3 so on and so forth the way that I'm gonna do this is actually loosen up this terminal and I'm gonna remove one leg of the resistor and that should allow it to be learning to our layer controller so let's head over to programming and see what that looks like so now on our layer controller we have to go into zone programming so I'm gonna hit the tools button enter our default installer code for one one two program zones and then the first two zones are the hardwired zones and the rest is template it as the lyric has been defaulted I'm gonna hit front door and then edit so now I'm in this zone programming I'm gonna click serial number and now the system is in learn mode so I'm gonna go back to my seat eww I'm gonna loosen up that resistor that we saw in zone 1 to open the zone because I don't have a contact connected and then I'm gonna replace it as you can see we got one beep so I'm going to do it a second time we got two I'm gonna do it a third time there you go just like any other 5800 device it learns on with the three beeps all the zones on the 5800 c2w are going to be loop number one and as you can see that serial number it is the serial number that we saw and they added one on to the end of it that shows us that that's the first zone of the terminal set in the 5100 c2w the rest of the programming you just program and how you like name it how you'd like and you'll be all set usually zone number one will be the front door so front door so in response type is entry exit alarm report sure chime is standard supervision is supervised so those we're all set we're gonna click Save well back out to the main menu and just to prove that it works when I open this zone we should see that the front door is open on earlier the reason that we're seeing the tamper on the front door is because we do have the cover off of the 5800 c2w but it is working as expected do you have any questions about the 5100 c2w installing it on your lyric security system or security systems in general feel free to head over to our website send us an email to
