Home automation is a huge trend that gets better with innovation each and every day. Can you imagine that in the near future, you’ll be able to verbally tell your home to power up appliances, create mood lighting and configure home entertainment. Today, you can add automatic heat and cooling preferences to your home automation mix thanks to Honeywell’s new Lyric thermostat.
Based on your smartphone’s location (geofencing), the Lyric thermostat is able to seamlessly deliver heating/cooling comfort when you’re home, and savings when you’re away, no learning needed. It’s the first offering in a new family of innovative connected home products from Honeywell. With the Lyric thermostat, it can deliver home comfort that’s in tune with your schedule simply based on your smartphone location. With the Lyric thermostat, there are no complex menus, complicated programming, or a need to set schedules. The Lyric thermostat is designed for how people really live, and makes home comfort easy with a number of other highlight features:
Lyric app – available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, the Lyric app provides full control of the Lyric thermostat from most anywhere.
Fine Tune – automatically factors indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, and weather into its algorithm, to provide the most comfortable temperature for homeowners. No other do-it-yourself Wi-Fi thermostat on the market today does that.
Smart Cues – the Lyric thermostat provides updates on your heating/cooling system, and lets you know through the Lyric app if a filter needs to be changed, the temperature has gone too high/low, and other key updates.
Busy families don’t operate on a fixed schedule. Why should their thermostats? The Honeywell Lyric™ thermostat is designed for how people really live. No complicated schedules or programming, and no complex menus – simply comfort when you’re home, and savings when you’re away. The Lyric thermostat is available now via professional heating and cooling contractors (find a local contractor here), and will be available in stores August 2014 for $279.
