One thought on “How to Connect Apple Homekit to Lyric Controller

  1. I have a couple HomeKit motion sensors and door/window sensors. If I buy this panel do you know if I would be able to pair those to this devices armed away and home modes? Can this be a monitoring service to notify authorities if sensor is tripped? Or it’s only notifications to your devices and you have to call? If it does not work with my existing sensors are all the ones by lyric Apple HomeKit capably?
