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 prompts to be more active or drink more H20. It made baby monitors obsolete 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 social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets 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 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 know it – 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.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the air 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 literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating unit 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 perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you cash. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s 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 7 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 turning the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
