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 move around more or guzzle more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, 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 daily Starbucks.
And now it controls your home.
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
In time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to heat the 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 peace of mind and time, 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 your heating and cooling bills. When it understands 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’re about an hour away from home, 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? Fear not! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
