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 reminders to be more active or drink more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a live feed of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It joins you to the outside world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets 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 adjusts 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 – that’s right – 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.
 
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 literally see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to warm 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you get home.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. 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 themostat and then, when it sees you’re about an hour away from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
