What is the best Honeywell Alarm System?
The best Honeywell Alarm System is the Honeywell Lyric Controller. This is a wireless all-in-one (AIO) system that includes every feature that one would expect out of a modern alarm system. It comes Z-Wave and WIFI ready, and it is one of the few panels that can be used with Apple HomeKit.
As a security system, the Lyric is capable of supporting up to 128 wireless zones. It also includes 32 separate zones for supporting key fobs. It can use the legacy Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors, but it also has its own exclusive lineup of encrypted SiX Series Sensors. The SiX Series devices use 2.4 GHz WIFI and 128-bit AES encryption when communicating with the Lyric. This makes them some of the most secure sensors in the entire industry, and they are virtually impossible to ever hack or take over wirelessly. And with its built-in voice feature, the system will verbally annunciate any zone that is activated.
The Lyric Comes with a built-in WIFI card for alarm monitoring service. But a user can also add a cellular communicator for cellular monitoring service. This will provide a dual-path communication setup for the Lyric. If the WIFI ever goes down, the system will automatically switch over to its cellular backup. this way, the Lyric System will enjoy the fast speeds of WIFI and the superb reliability of cellular.
Another benefit of the Honeywell Lyric Alarm System is that it can connect with the Total Connect 2.0 interactive service. This platform provides several great functions for the end user. The service can be accessed at any time through a web browser or remotely using the Total Connect 2.0 Mobile App. Once a user has accessed Total Connect, they can arm and disarm their system, check the current status of sensors, control Z-Wave device and more. Speaking of Z-Wave, the Lyric comes Z-Wave ready with a built-in Z-Wave controller.
The Lyric Controller is also praised for its functionality with Apple HomeKit. This will allow iOS users to operate the Lyric Security Panel with voice commands that are sent through Siri. This is a convenient way to control the Lyric and all HomeKit devices from one spot. And when the user does operate the Lyric, they will appreciate its 7-inch full color touchscreen, its responsive controls and its sleek and modern design. It truly is the flagship system from Honeywell.
