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 be more active or guzzle more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the rest of 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 adapts to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to activate geofencing so your Lyric can really 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 start adjusting 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 switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you dollars. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 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 turning 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? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
