Which Cameras are Compatible with the Lyric Security System?


Hey, DIYers. This is George at Alarm Grid. Today, we’re going
to be going over what cameras are compatible
with the Lyric controller. Now, if you have an existing,
old generation Honeywell camera– those would be the Honeywell
iPCAM-WL2, the iPCAM-WL, any of the Honeywell
iPCAM pan tilts, or the Honeywell iPCAM-WO,
which is the outdoors– those cameras should still
work with the Lyric controller. You can get those activated
by your existing monitoring company as long as you’re
under the correct plan. However, these will no longer
be available in the near future. Honeywell will be discontinuing
these pretty soon, since they are releasing their brand new– they have already released
their brand new Lyric generation cameras. So these are going to be
Honeywell’s new cameras that they’re trying
to focus more on. One of these we actually
have here right now. It’s the Lyric C1. We also have a Lyric outdoor,
which is a bullet-style camera– I couldn’t bring it in here. It’s already installed–
and the Lyric C2. Now, these are Honeywell’s
new generation cameras. The C1 and the C2
are 720p cameras. The C1 is a 720p. The C2 is a 1080p. And then the OC1– which is the outdoor
one– is also 1080p. Now, these cameras cannot be
viewed directly through a Lyric controller. So what you would need to do
is have your monitoring company set up a Total Connect
account for you. And then using the
Total Connect account, you can actually
add these cameras so you can access
them to view them all in the same application
that you’re able to control the Lyric controller with. Unlike the old
generation cameras which actually stream to the Lyric– so if you go to a
Lyric screen, the way you used to be able to see
the old generation cameras was by going to the primary
screen, go to Video. You would first be taken
to the camera list. It should have the IP,
MAC of the IP camera. If you just highlight
it, it will turn green. You can hit Display,
and it’ll display the image of that camera
on the Lyric screen. To back out, just hit
the back arrow key. And you’re at the Lyric’s
primary screen, which is where the Video button is. But that is for the old
generation cameras, which is, again, just the WL2, WL. We have the pan tilt
and the outdoor camera. These were the ones that
you can view directly on the Lyric screen. But like I said, they’re
going to be discontinued very soon, so you will no longer
have the option of doing that. Now, I’m pretty sure
since they’re always releasing new firmware updates,
hopefully it is in the works that Honeywell will be releasing
some sort of firmware update that will eventually allow
you to stream the Lyric new generation cameras to
the actual Lyric controllers so that you not only can view
them through Total Connect– but if you’re at
home and you want to pull up your security system
and go to the video screen, you can view them through
the actual panel itself. Again, if you have
