Press Release:

MINNEAPOLIS, February, 2017 – In 2017, Honeywell announced it will continue expanding its Honeywell Lyric family of products as well as "Works with Honeywell" platform program. After showcasing its products at various trade shows this past month (i.e. Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 and International Builders' Show (IBS) 2017), Honeywell has been promoting their vision of a new flexible and dynamic connected home experience.

Honeywell Lyric product line includes Wi-Fi connected thermostats and sensors as well as indoor cameras and whole home security systems. Their platform provides consumers with easy-to-use, connected solutions – ensuring homeowners can securely and easily control their homes in the ways most important to them.

Because people and their homes are unique, the "Works with Honeywell" program gives more flexibility than ever before to customize and connect home technologies. If someone has a Honeywell thermostat and wants to change the temperature using just a voice command, or uses smart lighting and locks and wants to sync them with a security system, "Works with Honeywell" makes it possible. Partnerships with some of the biggest names in technology – from Apple and Amazon to Samsung and Lutron – give consumers the ability to connect a wide collection of products together, personalizing their connected home experience. From comfort and control, to savings and safety, even more connections are in store for this year.

In addition, Honeywell added two new cameras to its Lyrics line, Lyric C1 and C2 Wi-Fi Indoor Cameras. These DIY security cameras will help keep an eye on what's going on inside your smart home, day and night. They provide livestreaming, recorded events, screenshots and can send alerts when something is seen or heard inside your home. The cameras also have built-in microphone which allows it to hear any distinct sound (like baby crying or smoke alarm.) GearBrain will be testing these new cameras in the coming weeks and will provide a more in-depth review on them for you. In the interim, we like what we see.

Honeywell also announced its Lyric Home Security and Control System, a professionally installed and monitored home security system, is the first one to be connected with Apple HomeKit. You will now be able to control your Lyric Home Security system when connected with Apple HomeKit and Siri. And if you have smart lights, doors, thermostats and other connected devices in your smart home, these too can be controlled by Apple HomeKit app.
