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 prompts to get up and walk or consume more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It connects you to the outside 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts 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 HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature 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 really see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your furnace to warm your 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 ideal temperature when you step inside.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it knows 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 home’s temperature and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, 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 the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
