Voice Commands on the Lyric Security System

Voice Commands on the Lyric Security System


[CLICKING] Hi, DIYers. Joe here from Alarm Grid. And today, we’re going to
talk about the voice control on the Lyric Security System. Now, you may not have
known about this feature, but there is actually a voice
control feature on the system. It’s limited in what it can
do, but it is a nice feature, and it’s kind of fun to use. What you can do with is
you can have the system run smart scenes that
you tell it to, or you can have it
load up the camera menu if you have older model IP
cams and roll to the system. So we have a few things
set up on the Lyric today. We have a plug-in z-wave
module right here. We have the light that it’s
connected to right there. And we have the Lyric here. What we’re going to try to do
is we’re going to set up a scene so that we turn the light on
and have the Lyric arm itself when we tell it that
we’re leaving the house. We’re also going
to set up a scene to tell the lyric to turn the
light off when it’s bedtime. So first, define where
the voice command section is on the system. You’re going to click
on Security, Tools. And then you’re going to
enter your master code. The 1, 2, 3, 4. Right down here, you’ll see
where it says Voice command. And going in here, you have
a bunch of different options. Now, the first
thing you’re going to want to do when you load
up the voice command section is you’re going to want
to do voice training. We’re going to
walk through that. What that actually does
is it has the Lyric learn in your voice, and
it makes it easier for it to pick you up when
you tell it to do stuff. It takes a few minutes to
do, but let’s check it out. It’s going to ask you to read
out different things that it says on the screen, and it’s
going to learn your voice. So if we do Voice training. Right here it says
“Trial 1 of 3. Please say ‘Hello, Lyric.'” Now,
you have to wait until it shows this waveform on the screen,
and then it will be able to say that. So wait for it. Hello, Lyric. So it heard that. Hello, Lyric. That was the second time. It’s going to have
us do it three times. Hello, Lyric. And there we go. So we’ve completed
the first step. And it’s going to walk you
through this entire process. If we click the Next
button, we go to step two. And it’s going to tell
you to say something else. Wake up. So that one was good. Wake up. That time it didn’t register,
so we have to do it again. Wake up. Good. Wake up. So those are good. We’re going to go
to the next step. See, it’s telling us
to say something else. And you just want to be patient. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. Be patient and wait for
that waveform to show up. That’s when it’s
going to listen. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. And if you mess up, you
just get to do it again. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. Oh. Sometimes it’s a
little clunky, and you have to do it multiple times. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. [CLEARS THROAT] Hello, Lyric. Wake up. If you do run into this,
just keep trying it. And eventually,
it’ll go through. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. [LAUGHS] So we’re still
trying to get it in. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. We got it. So we click Next. Now it’s going to ask you to
say three different things. Hello, Lyric. Wake up. And we’re all set. So now we’ve learned our
voice into the Lyric. And as you can see, that
process can be a little weird. But if you just keep
trying, it will learn it. And as you can see,
it just picked us up. So we click on Edit– or Exit, rather. Now we know that the system
has learned our voice in. Now, there’s a few other options
that you do have on this menu. The Voice control option we’re
going to go into in a moment. The Log option will
actually show you all of the commands
with a time stamp that have been
received by the system. And the Counter option. This is actually how you
can adjust the sensitivity for the commands. So depending on which
trigger we have set up for our voice for the Lyric– let’s say we’re using the
“Hello, Lyric” voice trigger. Hello. Please say your command. The level that it receives
the last voice command at is going to be listed here. If you find that
the Lyric system– the sensitivity is too low even
after adjusting the sensitivity bar, you can go
in here, and this is another way you can
turn the sensitivity up. What you’ll want to do if you
find that the sensitivity is too low for a command
is find your command that you’ve been
speaking to the Lyric. And then under
Accuracy, you’re going to want to raise this number
above the number that is listed under the accuracy levels. What this will do is it’ll have
the Lyric look for the baseline accuracy to be the
one under this bar, and it will increase
the sensitivity for that particular command. It’s a little confusing. It does explain this
in the user manual, though, in a nice,
clean fashion. And it’s easy to follow if you
have the instructions in front you. That’s that menu. And as you can
see down here, you have Command sensitivity,
Trigger sensitivity, and Volume. Over here, we have a bunch
of different options. This first button turns the
voice control on or off. The second button
enables trigger feedback. What trigger feedback is– the system with
that enabled, it’s actually going to speak to us
and let us know that it heard us when we said something. If we turn that off,
the system won’t register with the
confirmation talk that it’s going to give us
back when we speak to it. As you get more
used to the system and get comfortable
with the voice command, some customers do
like to turn that off as it’s just less
noise in their house. Most customers, though,
will want that feature or that option to be left on. Then you’ll see on the bottom,
there’s three different options right here. We have trigger “Hello,
Lyric. ” Trigger– Hello. As you can see. We have trigger
“Hello, Lyric” Home. And we have trigger “OK, Lyric.” Now, depending on which
one of these you pick, this is going to be the phrase
that you say to initiate the voice command feature. Depending on whichever
one you pick, you’re going to have to say
those words to the Lyric to get it to go in
to the voice command. So as you can see we had
the first one listed, which is “Hello, Lyric.” Hello. Please say your command. As you can see, when
we say “Hello, Lyric,” it’s going to respond to us. And as we have the
Enable trigger feedback– –command. As we have the Enable
trigger feedback option on, it’s going to speak to
us as we talk to it. So that’s how to set up the
initial stage of the voice command. After you get this set up,
what you’re going to have to do is enroll a smart
scene from the system into a voice command
trigger on the system. So as stated before, we
have these three options that we can pick from. You can only select one. And that’s going to be the first
part of your voice command. Next, you go into Voice control. You’ll see you have five
different options right here. And these are the
five different options that you can link to
the voice command. What goes in here
is a smart scene. You can only have one
smart scene per option. And you can’t have duplicate
smart scenes in each one. So you’ll have to make
additional duplicate smart scenes if you want
identical ones to run under identical options
for whatever reason. But just know that after
you say your voice command, you’ll have to speak
these word or words to complete the command. So let’s say we have
our bedtime one, which is going to turn our light off. So we click on Bedtime
and then select Select. These are the different
scenes on the system, and I’ve created two
custom smart scenes. So if we press the
down arrow, you’ll see we have one that
says “Light off.” So if we just click
that and click Save, that’s going to go under
the bedtime voice command. So when we say our trigger
command to the system and then say “Bedtime,” it’s
going to run this scene. I’m also going to set up
one for leaving the house. So if we select “Leaving
the house” and click Select, we’ll press the down arrow. I’ve created this other
custom smart scene for this particular thing. That’s going to
turn the light on, and it’s going to
arm the system. We click that, click Save. And now we know after we
say our trigger command and say “Leaving the house,”
it’s going to run this scene. So to try this all out,
if we go all the way back to the main menu, and
I speak “Hello, Lyric–” Hello. Please say your command. Leaving the house. Pardon me. Leaving the house. There we go. If she doesn’t want to listen
to you, just speak again, and it will go in. Again, you can adjust
those sensitivity settings if you find that it’s
not registering stuff. This feature, again,
though, it does seem like it’s a little clunky. It does work just
fine as you can tell. But just repeat yourself if you
find that it didn’t pick it up. As you could see, though,
our scene is running. The light did turn on, and
the system is arming away. Now, you can’t disarm the
system with a voice enabled smart scene when
the system is on. But when the system
is armed, you are able to tell it
to run smart scenes. Let’s disarm it, though, to
get it ready for our next one. So now let’s say
end of the night, you’re laying down going to bed. And you just want to tell your
Lyric to turn the light off. So again, using our
trigger voice command. Hello, Lyric. Hello. Please say your command. Bedtime. Bedtime. Processing “Bedtime” command. And our light turns off. As you can see, she didn’t want
to listen me on the first one. So I just repeated myself,
and it ran the command. That’s the setup for
the Lyric voice command. Know that you can run
this in conjunction with an Alexa or Google Home. It’s a great little
feature that you can use with your system
to control a couple things around the house. Raising or lowering
the temperature, turning a light on, telling the
system to start arming itself when you’re leaving. It’s a nice feature addition. You don’t need
monitoring to use it. It’s built right
into the system. And it is functional. Thanks for watching. If you did enjoy the video,
