Lyric Controller Apple HomeKit Supplement Guide

I have monitoring set up with my local municipality. I self installed my LYRIC system myself that I bought from this site, so don't really have an alarm company beyond the municipality that is monitoring my system. Is the HomeKit setting something I can re-enable through the Total Connect 2.0 web portal or app? If so I can't find the option. This was previously enabled and working flawlessly prior to the software update. I'm just a bit confused on where this feature is toggled on/off
Hi Bret, In regards to the Home app, I'd suggest verifying that both the panel and smart device you're using are on the same wireless network. This will need to be the case in order for the two to communicate. There is the Total Connect application that can be used as well, this app does not require you to be on the same network as the panel and can be used anywhere. The total connect app does require your panel to be registered with honeywell servers in order to work however. We do offer monitoring plans that include this application: In regards to Homekit, the option to use this has been added back to the Lyric. However, this also requires you to be linked to honeywell servers as well. By default the option is disabled, if you have the panel registered your alarm company will be able to enable the option for you. If you're interested in monitoring and registering the panel to those servers, you an review our plans in the link previously provided.
My lyric control panel and connected sensors are showing no response in the home app all of a sudden. There is also no option for reset HomeKit available in the settings. Any ideas? App reads I’m on SW Rev 1.07
The camera's motion detection cannot set off the alarm. When the camera picks up motion it will record a clip of the event.
Using the Homekit feature: Can motion detected from a security camera trigger the siren?
