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 notifications to get up and walk or drink more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a live feed of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the outside world through social media, 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 optimizes to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the capability to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heating unit to warm the home or your air conditioning system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically modify 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 changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you cash. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No problem! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
