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

February 18, 2016
Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or drink more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It unites you with the rest of the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, 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 much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your home comfort 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 HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to heat the home or your air conditioner to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts 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. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it realizes that during the winter you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
