Honeywell Debuts Lyric Home Security with Voice Control

Dubbing it 'Life in Tune,' Honeywell is expanding its voice-control beyond its Lyric thermostat to a new professional-grade home security system under the Lyric brand name, featuring cameras, motion, smoke and sensors that integrates with home automation, and control of lighting, shades and door locks.

At the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Honeywell (NYSE:HON) is showcasing the latest additions to its Lyric family of products that expands voice control to a professional-grade home security system.

Featuring awareness cameras, motion, smoke and intruder detectors, Lyric home security will also integrate with a range of home automation products, such as connected thermostats, lighting, shade and lock controls.

In addition to a sleek touchscreen controller, Lyric home security will respond to voice commands based on personalized presets. For example, users will be able to disarm the system simply by saying: “Hello Lyric, I’m home!” which could also switch on the lights and adjust the temperature to your preferred setting.

Lyric home security is the second product in the Lyric family, joining the thermostat which was launched in 2014. Using a smartphone location, the Lyric thermostat knows when a homeowner leaves and when he or she is heading home to adjust the temperature accordingly.
