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 notifications to move around more or consume more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It joins you to the other people in the world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they keep their boarding passes 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 home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – you guessed 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 HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
In time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to heat 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you step inside.
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 money. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it understands that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 8 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 heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric learns 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.
