The Lyric™ Controller is designed to require little maintenance. However, testing your system is
strongly recommended, and regular cleaning is suggested.
Test the system weekly.
Test your system after any alarm occurs.
Care and Cleaning
Do not slam sensor-protected doors or windows.
Keep dust from accumulating on the touchscreen and sensors, particularly motion sensors
and smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.
The touchscreen and sensors should be cleaned carefully with a soft, dry cloth. Do not
clean the components with water or any other liquids.
We recommend cleaning the touchscreen weekly.
Press Clean. During the 15 second countdown, a soft, damp cloth can be used on the screen
without affecting the controls.
NOTE: When the security system is armed, system event notifications will cancel the cleaning
mode and return the system to normal operation. When the system is disarmed, only
certain notifications will cancel cleaning mode.
