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 notifications to be more active or consume more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. 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 much needed Starbucks.
And now it runs 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 – 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
After awhile, 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 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 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect 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 money. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat 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 HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
