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 H20. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the outside world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it runs your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, 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 home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the capability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your furnace to heat your 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 desired temperature when you get home.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
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 adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it knows that during the winter you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? Fear not! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
