At the present time, many of these types of persons really do not know how or where to look for such types of resources and this is why they often become confused and nervous when it comes to learning how to negotiate and work with the Internet. What they are fast learning is that the Internet consists of a whirlpool of components; just too many to deal with in a logical manner. So, enter the need for manuals. In addition to all of this, aging baby boomers and seniors and many others as well are constantly having to keep up with the powers of the latest and greatest releases of software. So much is available for knock down prices but at the same time there is also so much available for free. The thing is this however; many Internet goers are still not sure how or where to look in order to take advantage of these bargains. The Internet is growing and will continue to do so for a very long time to come and with this will come a growing need to be able to search and learn. What would be ideal is if something could be done to bridge the gap between the growing demand and how and where to find the resources needed in order to help individuals cope. There are so many new terms cropping up each day along with new meanings and terminology to understand. This is not going to change so we might as well settle into a comfortable position. We also need to find ways to teach others how to deal with and use some of the more important mechanisms on the Internet.

When activating Honeywell’s Total Connect Remote Services used with the Lyric Controller, you can control the security system, compatible IP cameras including Skybell, Z Wave or Lyric thermostats, Z Wave lighting, Z Wave locks and receive alerts from most smartphones, tablets, and computers. You can also download the My Home Controller app for local only WIFI access when Total Connect 2 service for remote system control is not chosen. While we see the Honeywell Lyric LCP500 L Security Controller as a hit with great new features, there is a glaring negative we see as well. If you signup for AlarmNet for Interactive Services and possibly Total Connect 2, you are sort of “locked” to your selected dealer for monitoring services. You can still change dealers at any time of course but it will require a factory reset defaulting the panel which blows away all existing panel settings and zone configuration. Honeywell has decided, and just for Lyric it seems, to make dealer “takeovers” of monitoring accounts very difficult since they now require the new dealer or DIY homeowner to reenter/reprogram all wireless sensors and more into the controller from scratch. If you start with a good monitoring vendor this will never be a problem, but we have an issue making it so burdensome for users to switch if their dealer service levels fall or their pricing is no longer competitive. If you don’t buy the equipment outright, Vivint requires either a four or five year contract — a long time to commit, especially given that you only have three days from the date of install to cancel. Afterwards, you’ll have to pay out the remainder of your contract. If you may be moving in the near future, it’ll cost you $99 to take the system with you. You could alternatively renew your contract, but then you’d be locked in for even longer.
