The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat
Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to move around more or guzzle more water. 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-in for 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 heating and cooling 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
In time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your furnace to warm your home or your A/C system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the ideal temperature when you arrive.
It even alerts 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 heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it realizes that during the winter 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 pushing the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
