Is There a Difference Between the IPCAM-WIC1 and the Lyric C1?
No, there is not a difference between the IPCAM-WIC1 and the Lyric C1. Both names refer to the same Total Connect Camera from Honeywell. The high-definition camera is listed as the IPCAM-WIC1 in most Honeywell documentation. However, it is sold as the Lyric C1 on the Alarm Grid website.
The names IPCAM-WIC1 and Lyric C1 are often used interchangeably. They are both used to identify the same camera from Honeywell. Most retailers will list it as the Honeywell Lyric C1. This is done to associate it with the Honeywell Lyric Controller. The Lyric Controller is currently the flagship security panel from Honeywell. Most new Honeywell Security System buyers will end up purchasing a Honeywell Lyric Controller. By putting "Lyric" in the name, the product can be associated with the Lyric Controller security panel.
However, most Honeywell documentation refers to the camera as the IPCAM-WIC1. The term "IPCAM" refers to Honeywell's lineup of Total Connect Cameras. These cameras are capable of interfacing with the Total Connect service. The "W" stands for WIFI, meaning that the camera can connect to a WIFI network. The "I" stands for indoors, as the camera is designed to be used indoors only. The "C" stands for camera. The "1" refers to the fact that it is the first camera in this particular lineup. In fact, there is now a newer camera in this lineup. This newer camera is appropriately named the Honeywell IPCAM-WIC2, or the Lyric C2.
As for the IPCAM-WIC1 or Lyric C1, it is an indoor camera that connects to a 2.4 GHz WIFI network. It can record 720p HD video, and it can be placed on a desk or table for easy access. The device can be easily paired with Total Connect by using a compatible smart device and a generated QR Code.
