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 consume more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It connects you to the other people in the world through social media, 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 morning Starbucks.
 
And now it manages 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, of course, 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
In 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 ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heating unit to heat the 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the ideal temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts 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. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows that during the heating season 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
