HomeKit support continues to grow in the industry as Honeywell adds support for Apple’s framework for the connected home to its Lyric Controller home security system.
The new integration comes as a free software update, available to both current and future Lyric Controller customers. Now users are able to use Apple’s Home app or Siri to control different presets, scenes and automations.
This isn’t Honeywell’s first HomeKit-enabled product, with the Lyric thermostat seeming to be a popular choice for smart home consumers.
The Lyric Controller has a large, seven-inch touch screen as well as a built in camera. System is also able to collect motion data from its own sensor, or other motion sensors which will then trigger an alert, and a notification to your iOS device.
Honeywell’s Lyric Controller can be found on Amazon for $288.
