Honeywell has today announced that its existing Lyric Home Security and Control Systems will receive a software update within the next 3 months, that will bring Apple HomeKit support to its pro-installed security systems. In addition, the company has also announced new Lyric C1 and C2 Wi-Fi Indoor Cameras, with the ability to capture 720p video at 30 FPS with a 135-degree viewing angle, and 1080p at 30 FPS with a 138-degree viewing angle, respectively.
Both Lyric cameras can keep an eye on what’s happening day or night. The companion Lyric app provides access to livestreaming, recorded events, screenshots, and will send alerts when something is seen. A built-in speaker on both models makes two-way talk possible, whether it’s speaking to someone in the room or telling a pet to get off the furniture. Wired power means no batteries to check or change, and local storage. an 8GB SD card is also included with every Lyric C1 and C2 Camera.
“Able to smartly record seconds before an event happened (and even ignore something like a ceiling fan, thanks to two detection zones with the Lyric C1 Camera and four with the Lyric C2 Camera), the cameras can be turned on or off manually, or through geofencing via the location of someone’s phone. Powerful, 256-bit end-to-end encryption captures and sends footage securely, and both cameras can integrate with professional, 24-7 security monitoring if preferred”.
The Lyric C1 and C2 Wi-Fi Indoor Cameras will be available within the first three months of 2017.
