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 get up and walk or drink more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects you to the other people in the world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – that’s right – 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are home, 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 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 also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you money. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it knows that during the winter 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 turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
