The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat

February 18, 2016
Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or guzzle more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It joins you to the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – you know it – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the capability to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your furnace to warm the home or your A/C system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you cash. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts turning the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
