Adding Z Wave to a VISTA System


Hideo is a joker from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about the best place to install a lyric security system now this is going to change from location to location and it's going to change depending on whether you have existing stuff in the home or whether you don't if you do have an existing security system in your location there's likely going to be an all-in-one panel at the front door or a keypad right there if you're replacing it with the lyric you can install it right by the front door and it works great as it has the 7-inch touchscreen you can do everything you need to at the system it also has that built-in siren right inside of the unit and it works great as an all-in-one unit now if you don't want to install it at the front door you have a few different options the first one what you may think of is the wireless keypad which is called the lkp 500 we have run right here it's actually a six device so it gets all the benefits that six devices do it has a 300 foot communication range two-way communication it isn't super feature packed it doesn't have voice chime it will chime it has a two line alphanumeric LCD display and it works great many customers that have found that this doesn't have all the features that they want and they're going to want something more robust to interact with the system with now if you don't want to use the lkp 500 or if you want to use other options in conjunction with it you do have that ability with the system there's a free app called my home controller that you can download off of the Apple or the Android App Store it's free to download it connects the smart device right to your lyric system over the Wi-Fi network in the home and it actually gives you a full panel screen emulating what is shown at the lyric we have an iPad right here with it set up and as you can see it has an almost identical user interface as the lyric you won't be able to do any programming on this but you can interact with your system you can arm and disarm check the cameras do automation and all that good stuff it's basically a user interface app it's not a program app this is great to use it's free to download you just connect it right in and it counts as another wireless keypad on the system the lyric system can support up to eight wireless keypads so you can have a tell KP 500 s or you can have a combination of however many LK P's you want with however many devices running my home controller that you want in a lot of locations people have actually taken an old tablet they have and mount it in the wall and set it up so that it's always on as a virtual keypad instead of using the LK P 500 it works perfectly fine another option that you have to control the system is if you get your system monitored you'll be able to access it through Total Connect 2.0 now that's an app that is gonna be part of a monitoring plan the security company that you activate with they're gonna if you do activate it they're gonna set you up with an account they'll help you log into it and when you get that up you'll be able to communicate with the system through a smartphone or tablet or even on a computer on a web browser and it will write in this system Total Connect 2.0 it's similar to the the my home controller app but it is more robust as it gives you text and email alerts you can set up automation scenes you can edit and create users there's a whole bunch of other things that you can do with the app it's very popular and it's a great app to use with the lyric security system now as far as installation goes depending on how the system is communicating that also may change where you actually install it the lyric has a built-in Wi-Fi module that you can use to use all his communication but you can also install a cellular module into the unit and if you want you can have it run only on cellular so if you have a location where the Wi-Fi isn't good or it's not going to be able to use a Wi-Fi if you have cellular in the system can really install it wherever you like as long as it is cellular communication or cellular signal strength it's going to work just fine now you can also install it with Wi-Fi and cellular and a dual path communication so depending on which communication path you have that may change where you actually decide to install the system whether you use the system as a monitored system or as a local system it still works great the my home controller and the lkp 500 they're gonna work whether you get it monitored or not so you'll still be able to access it with these two methods if you want to use Total Connect with this some you will have to get monitoring on it but it's all set to do that and it's very easy to activate that's the best places to install your lyric security system if you
