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

February 18, 2016
Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to move around more or consume more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater 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 ideal temperature when you get home.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it understands that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’re about an hour away from home, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
