HomeKit compatible security alarm system panel options?

My house has sensors connected to the window and door (Honeywell brand) and a Honeywell control panel. We have no interest in paying for a monitored security service, so all this system does is arm the house and trigger the alarm in the house if it is triggered. I would like a HK compatible control panel so that I can enable / disable the phone and receive alerts on the phone if the system is triggered. Do you have any recommendations? Honeywell Lyric Controller seems like an option and claims to be HK compatible, but several of the reviews on Amazon say that in order to get the software update to enable HK compatibility, you need to sign up for a monitored security service that wins purpose for me. Although I’m wondering if you could sign up to get the software update, then cancel the service? Does anyone have experience in this?
