Honeywell Lyric Round Thermostat
You might need a nerd if…
- Your home’s climate is hard to control
- You’re looking for ways to reduce your electricity bill
- You want to explore the possibilities for integrating smart home technologies into your home environment.
Key features of the Honeywell ThermostatThe first big draw of this product is that you can program it easily. It can be controlled from an app and features an impressive array of automation features. Unlike a conventional thermostat where you’re going to have multiple steps to tweak an existing program, with the Honeywell thermostat we’re talking little more than a few taps on your smartphone. But then we get to the real meat and potatoes: artificial intelligence and geofencing technology. This thermostat actually keeps tabs on where you are and will adjust the temperature in your house accordingly. If you’re leaving home, the thermostat powers down. When you’re on your way back, the thermostat whirs into life and gets it perfect for you before you open your front door. It’s a thing of beauty. It’s also equipped with an array of sensors, which allow it to be almost supernaturally intuitive. The intelligent comfort control feature monitors humidity levels and outside temperature to adjust your heating system and maintain a snug, consistent temperature. No more back and forth adjusting of the thermostat all night.
How Smart Home Friendly Is This Product?The lyric round is easy and intuitive to use out-of-the-box. If you know how to use a smartphone, operating the lyric round will be a breeze. A polished glass screen with touch-sensitive buttons provides access to everything you need. This includes switching between heating and cooling mode, notifying the system when you’ll be away from home, and weather-related stats. Changing the temperature is easy too, thanks to motion sensing illumination. Besides its own family of products, the lyric round can integrate with a wide variety of other smart technologies found around your home. Some of these include Apple HomeKit, Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT, Amazon Alexa (through Echo), Google Home, and Wink. This means it’s entirely possible to control your HVAC system through your iPhone, iPad, Android, smartwatch, OR through voice with a voice-activated home assistant like an Echo or Google Home. With powerful smart thermostat features, the lyric round is a great bargain if you’re on a budget.
