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 be more active or drink more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It connects you to the outside world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their daily 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, if you choose, using – that’s right – your smartphone.
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
In time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to warm 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you arrive.
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be switched!
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you money. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat 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 HVAC unit 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 initiate turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
