The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat
Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or consume more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It joins you to the other people in the world through social media, 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 morning Starbucks.
And now it runs 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 choose, using – you know it – your smartphone.
Your smartphone can control your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
In 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 capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to heat 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you step inside.
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be switched!
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you cash. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it understands that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 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 raising 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? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
