MELVILLE, N.Y., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON), a leader in home comfort and security for more than 125 years, is introducing the LyricTM Home Security and Control System, a next generation, highly customizable, easy-to-use, whole home system that can be conveniently controlled through a single mobile app as well as via voice commands. The new system is the latest expansion of Honeywell's Lyric connected home platform, combining an elegant design with features and components for both inside and around the home, and utilizing professional monitoring and support for additional peace of mind.
Lyric offers a range of add-on home comfort and control components, including indoor and outdoor awareness cameras, smoke, motion, and intruder detectors, and alarms. Lyric's connectivity via Z-Wave and Wi-Fi means consumers can also add and control a growing range of do-it-yourself (DIY) and professionally installed products, including lights, switches, door locks, thermostats, window shades, garage door openers, and more. The ever-growing, open ecosystem for integrating other products currently includes the likes of August (smart locks), SkyBell® (video doorbells), Rhino (GPS Tracking), and others, with more pairings in development to help consumers build out their homes as they want and need.
With Lyric, consumers can easily connect their homes piece by piece, starting with the comfort and control products they value most, and then adding others over time. And by simply saying "Hello, Lyric…," consumers can adjust their home environment quickly and securely – for example, turning up the thermostat and lifting the shades while you get ready for work, or shutting down lights and locking the doors as you get ready for bed.
The Lyric controller, with its white finish and silver accents to match a variety of décors, includes a seven-inch touchscreen and a built-in camera that can send a picture via the app so you know when the system has been locked or unlocked and by whom. If a sensor detects an unusual situation or an emergency arises, Lyric will provide visual and audible updates as well as notifications through the app; Lyric can also quickly contact first responders such as medical, fire, and police departments.
The Lyric Home Security and Control System is now available for professional installation through select, certified, Honeywell-trained dealers.
