If you’re looking for a powerful security camera that is relatively inexpensive, simple to set up and easy to use, the Honeywell Lyric C2 Wi-Fi Security Camera is for you. I reviewed the Lyric thermostat and still use it. (Review) I also reviewed the Lyric C1 Security Camera. (Review) The Lyric C2 is a fantastic addition to our ever-smarter home.
The Lyric C2 is a round camera that, when used with its base, can be angled up or down to capture the area that you most need to see.
It is a simple design but certainly more interesting from a visual perspective than the Lyric C1 I reviewed.
In the box, you get the camera, a USB to micro USB cable, a wall adapter, mounting hardware and instructions. You will also need to download the Lyric app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and set up an account. I already had an account thanks to the other Lyric products we use, so I simply had to tell the app to add an additional device.
Once you have downloaded the app and created an account, the setup is simple. I plugged in the camera, told the app to add a device and, within a few seconds, it identified the C2 camera. Because I already have the app set up, I simply needed to follow the app’s prompts to complete the setup.
