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 move around more or consume more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It unites you with the rest of the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, 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 controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – that’s right – 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.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to use geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to heat the 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you get home.
 
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. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates 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 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts pushing 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 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 provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
