Lyric Alarm System Slideshow

Lyric Alarm System Slideshow


[SOUND OF DRAWING A SWORD] [THUMP] [SOUND OF LOCKING] Hey, DIYers! I’m Jorge with Alarm Grid. Today we’re going to be
demonstrating the slideshow feature on the Lyric Controller. So to start off, first
thing you’ll need is going to be a USB. You’re going to want to make
sure that the USB has preloaded images onto it. The images– you
want to make sure that the file size of each
image is 30 megabytes. The image– if you want to go
ahead and scale it down or fix the size of it, Honeywell
recommends that you use a 1240 by 600 file size. And the image also has
to be formatted as JPEG, which is J-P-E-G. Now, this is a good
chance to upload images of you, your family. Anything that you’d want to
have acting as a slideshow feature on your Lyric
Controller, that’s what you can go ahead and do. Now the easiest way to
go ahead and insert this, is if you already have the
Lyric mounted on the wall, you’re just going to need to
crouch underneath the panel. And there’s going to be a USB
right off to the center left. So if I look right
here, I just plug it in. There we go. So, once you have
the USB plugged in, you now have to go to
the master user screen. I have this Lyric
defaulted, so I’m going to be using my master
code, which is 1, 2, 3, 4. It’s the default master code
for all Honeywell systems. I’m going to go ahead
and go to Security. Make your way over to Tools. Enter in 1, 2, 3, 4. I’m going to go ahead and
hit the right arrow key. It’s a little gray
button off to the side. It takes me to the next page. And the Slideshow is
where I want to be. Now, right now you’re
going to see it’s empty. I haven’t loaded any images
from the USB onto there. Now, I do have some images on
here that are formatted PNG. That will not show up on here. Remember, they have to be JPEG– J-P-E-G only. So going to go ahead
and do the load images off to the
right hand side. And now this can take a few
minutes to load the images. As you can see, we’re probably
going to be here for a while, ’cause loading even about– I think it’ll load five
images, six images– that may take a minute or two. So if you’re loading more than
six, it may take even longer. So just be patient
with the panel. And the images, once
the screen has stopped, they will all load by two, yeah? Now one thing that I noticed
when we started the video was that I had the
backlight timeout on, which I’m going to show
you guys how to turn off. Because right now, when we
were testing, when the Lyric– when the backlight
timeout is enabled– I have it set to 30 seconds. So after 30 seconds,
the screen goes dark. If you guys have the
slideshow feature enabled to start after 30 seconds,
but the screen has already blacked out, you guys
won’t see anything because of the backlight timeout. So I’m going to disable
that in a second here after we get this
done, so we can actually see the images and
the slideshow feature. So it’s still loading. It should be done
any second here. And again, before you used to be
able to load images from Total Connect directly to the panel. You would even be able to
do that on Links panels. But since Total
Connect has changed, the only panel
now that can do it is Lyric, since it’s
the only one that has the USB port in it. So, as you can see, it
loaded the images by two. I can hit the down arrow key
to scroll through my images. Yes? Underneath you have
different options. So the slide
interval is how long you want each light to be on
before it goes to the next. So I have mine set
to five seconds. If you click it, it’ll up
it to 10, to 15, to 20, and then back to 5, seconds
which is the minimal– the minimum. So I’m going to
leave it at five. The slide after– this is how
long after the panel goes idle you want the slideshow to start. So I have mine
set to 30 seconds, because I want to show you guys
for the video’s sake how long– the actual slideshow feature. But you can change that– so if you want it to
start after 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 30
minutes, et cetera. If you disable it, the
slideshow feature will not work. So you want to make sure that
you do set a time on this. I’m going to set
mine for 30 seconds. Now, I accidentally pressed
on one of the images. It actually
highlights it yellow. I don’t know if you can
see it in the video, but it has a yellow border. And you can actually– let’s
say you didn’t want an image. You can highlight
it and hit Delete. And that’ll delete the
images from the loaded images you took from the USB. Now, right now I’m going
to go ahead and hit Save, because I want to save my work. I’m going to hit
the back arrow key. And remember, we have to
change that backlight timeout, or else it will not work. To do that– just really quick– I’m going to go to Tools. Enter in the installer code. Default is 4, 1, 1, 2, unless
you or your monitoring company has changed it. You go to Program,
System Settings. And like I said, I have
mine to 30 seconds. If you set it to No– and then hit Save. And back out to the main screen. Now, after 30 seconds,
after the system has been idle for 30 seconds,
the slideshow feature should start. The backlight will not timeout,
because I just disabled that. And then we will start
seeing all the images that we loaded from
our USB onto there. Your USB– if you still
have it plugged in, you can go ahead and unplug it. You don’t need the USB
in there the whole time. You’ve already loaded the
images onto the panel, so they’re actually saved
onto the Lyric Controller. So if you want to
upload new images, plug this right
into your computer– whatever device you have– and
just upload new images to it if you want to go
ahead and do that. And as you see, the Lyric
starts scrolling through. And in five seconds,
it’ll switch to the next image and
every other image I loaded onto there from the USB. Once you tap on the screen– tap on the screen–
there you go– it brings you back
to the main page. And again, this is just
a quick video on how– and a quick
demonstration, actually– on how to upload images
to your Lyric panel and use the slideshow feature. If you guys do
