Our take on the Honeywell Lyric C1 Camera by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The Lyric C1 camera's two-way talk function lets you check in when the kids get home from school.
Check in at home with this wireless camera
There are a hundred little things I worry about when I'm away from home — did my son come straight home from school, is the dog making a mess, did I leave the water running? With the compact, wireless Honeywell Lyric C1 camera and the free Lyric app, it's easy to check in and make sure everything's okay.
The built-in microphone and speaker let you carry on a two-way conversation with anyone who appears, so you can make sure the homework gets done before the video game console comes on.
The free Lyric app is the true wizard behind this camera. It lets you watch a live feed on a secure, encrypted connection and zoom in on important scenes.
You can configure the camera to send you push notifications when it detects sound or motion, so you'll know when someone's in the house.
Mounting it where you need it
The camera features a 135-degree wide-angle lens, so wherever you put it, you'll get a great view. It tilts, so you can put it on a table or shelf and aim it right where you need coverage. Wall mounting hardware is included, too.

Overview: The Honeywell Lyric C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera lets you keep an eye on your property from virtually anywhere. Using the Lyric app, you can receive alerts whenever motion or sounds are detected, or let you live stream from the camera whenever you like. The camera comes with a magnetic stand, a 6' power cable, and an 8 GB microSD memory card.
Video/Photos: The 720p high definition camera can record videos (MPEG-4 H.264 compression) or take 1 MP JPEG photos. When motion or sound is detected, the camera records a 30 second clip (5 seconds before the sound or motion and 25 seconds after), then uploads it to the free secure cloud storage and sends you a notification. If the cloud is unavailable or the camera is not connected to the internet, the clips are stored on the SD card, and uploaded to the cloud when the connection is restored. Live streams are not saved.
Lens: The C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera has a wide-angle lens with a 135° view so there's no need to tilt or pan. The 5x digital zoom allows you to get a closeup of the desired portion of the scene.
Wi-Fi: The camera features Wi-Fi connectivity, and is compatible with IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, Single Band 2.4 GHz. It operates on a minimum bandwidth of 1.333 Mbps.
Lyric App: The C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera can be controlled by your smartphone, tablet, or laptop through your home Wi-Fi network. Through the Honeywell Lyric app, you can view and change settings from anywhere, and receive alerts if motion or sounds are detected. The Honeywell Lyric app is compatible with smartphones and tablets running iOS 9.0 or later, or Android 4.3 and up.
Motion/Sound Detection: When the camera detects a sound or motion, it will send an alert to the app. You can set the sensitivity of the Motion Detection from low (detects only big movement) to high (detects all movement and changes in environment), or turn off motion detection. Likewise, you can set the Sound Detection from Low (loud sounds only: 80-100 decibels) to High (all sounds (10-100 decibels), or off. The camera's Intelligent Sound Detection can determine when the sound detected is coming from your smoke or carbon monoxide detector, and will send you an alert that the smoke or CO alarm is detected.
Detection Zones: Using the Lyric App, you can set up Detection Zones for extra sensitivity or to ignore background motion, such as a ceiling fan. Each zone has its own sensitivity setting (low to high). The zones cannot overlap.
Geofencing: You can use geofencing to determine when to turn the camera on or off. Using the location of your mobile device, the Lyric app can sense whether you are away or at home, and can turn the camera on or off as desired. The geofence radius can be configured on a map in the app.
Night Vision: The camera has Night Vision up to 16.5 feet (5 meters). The app's Night Vision settings can be set to Always On, Always Off, or Auto (camera adjusts the settings automatically).
Two-way Audio: The Lyric C1 Wi-Fi Security camera provides two-way audio capability between your smartphone or tablet and the camera. This lets you speak to anyone in your home from your smartphone, whether it's greeting the kids when they arrive home from school, or telling an intruder in your home to get out.
microSD: The camera has a slot for a microSD memory card. The card can be used to store photos and videos recorded by the camera, in case the camera's connection to the cloud is lost. The slot will accept microSD cards up to 64 GB. An 8 GB card is included.
Mounting Options: The Wi-Fi Security Camera can be surface mounted, using the supplied magnetic stand. The camera can be tilted forward or backward for best view. The stand can be easily removed for wall mounting using the built-in keyhole slot.
