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 reminders to be more active or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads 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 adjusts to your life to control your heating and cooling 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 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 there, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your furnace to warm your 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 perfect temperature when you step inside.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you dollars. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts 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 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts pushing the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
