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 reminders to move around more or drink more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, 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 keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
And now it controls your home.
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – that’s right – 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.
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the ability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to heat the 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 perfect temperature when you get home.
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 HVAC system’s behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the winter 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
