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 be more active or drink more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the rest of the world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their morning 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, of course, using – you know it – your smartphone.
 
You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your family’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 activate geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to heat your 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you step inside.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature 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 a comfortable temperature? Fear not! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
