The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat
February 18, 2016
Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or drink more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with 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 morning Starbucks.
And now it runs your home.
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your home comfort 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to heat your home or your air conditioner 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 get home.
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be switched!
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you dollars. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
