The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat

February 18, 2016
Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or drink more agua. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It connects you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it runs 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, of course, 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 HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
But over 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 ability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to warm your home or your air conditioning 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 you peace of mind and time, they save you dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it realizes that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes 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 begin turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
