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 reminders to move around more or consume 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 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, 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.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, 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 heat 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it understands that during the cold months 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
