Honeywell's Lyric Makes CES Debut

Honeywell Security joined hundreds of other exhibitors at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and is showcasing it latest edition of home security with Lyric. The product is a new way for a family to stay in control of home comfort and security whether they are at home, or away. Honeywell's Lyric Makes CES Debut

Lyric is a professional-grade home security system that integrates with a home security portfolio of home automation products including awareness cameras, motion, smoke and intruder detectors, as well as thermostats, lighting, shade and lock controls. For example, a homeowner can disarm the system by addressing Lyric, simply saying, "Hello Lyric, I'm home." This command will automatically switch on the lights and adjust the temperature settings in the home. Lyric joins the company's thermostat, which was introduced in 2014.

"In an increasingly connected world, consumers are looking for ways to simplify their lives," said Jeremy Eaton, president of Honeywell Connected Home. "The Lyric family of products provides the comfort, protection and security that homeowners want for their most valuable assets, and seamlessly connects with and automates other home systems to simplify their lives."

Lyric brings multiple scenarios to the consumers' life by adjusting the temperature automatically whether the homeowner is driving away from or returning home, keeping an eye on events outside the home or around the house, using a few quick commands to lock up and turn off lights around the house and quickly connecting with professionals for assistance.
