Honeywell took its biggest step yet towards building a smart, connected home last year with the Lyric Thermostat — an obvious competitor to the Nest Learning Thermostat. Now, the company is moving beyond a single product and building out its vision of a Honeywell-powered connected home with the next piece of the Lyric family: a home security system.
While the Lyric thermostat was a single piece of hardware, Honeywell's home security system looks to be a more complicated affair — the main pieces of the system consist of "awareness" cameras plus motion, smoke, and intruder alarms. Presumably, users will be able to buy as many pieces of this system as they need to blanket their houses.
The whole system is controlled by a wall-mounted touchscreen panel that doesn't look all that dissimilar from some of Honeywell's non-Lyric touchscreen thermostats.
