The cameras make use of wired power instead of batteries. They have an 8GB SD card if the connected Wi-Fi network fails. Lyric Cameras have free daily cloud storage but you can also find upgrades to 7 and 30-day capacities. The Lyric Cameras are not mentioned to ultimately get HomeKit compatibility with live video feed monitoring, which is something quite interesting.

The HomeKit software upgrade will get to present as well as future Lyric Security users. Honeywell stated that the Lyric Security controller is aimed at remaining as the center for securely arming and disarming the system. The integration with HomeKit is mainly as means to push notifications to your iOS device to warn of possibly strange activity.
