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 notifications to move around more or drink more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It joins you to the outside world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get 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 optimizes 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your furnace to warm the 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 swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, 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 your heating and cooling bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 7 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 to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
