The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat
Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or consume more agua. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects you to the rest of the world through social media, 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 daily Starbucks.
And now it runs 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 – you guessed 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heating system to heat 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you arrive.
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 cash. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
