The Lyric™ thermostat is a first offering from the company in connected home products. Based on smartphone location, the thermostat knows when users are coming and going, in order to deliver comfort when home and savings when away. The Fine Tune feature factors indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity and weather into its algorithm, enabling it to provide the most comfortable temperature for homeowners.

Beyond a smartphone, the temperature can be managed using Honeywell’s round dial control on the thermostat itself. With the Lyric app, available via the App Store on iTunes™ and Google Play™) homeowners can adjust their home’s temperature to life as it happens, wherever they are. When a homeowner walks up to the Lyric thermostat, a built-in proximity sensor signals the display to turn on and show current temperature and the home’s heating or cooling status. A soft halo of light in orange (heating), blue (cooling) or green (away/energy savings) momentarily illuminates around the thermostat to indicate it is making temperature adjustments. Additionally, touch-sensitive buttons flank the center display — one for accessing current and upcoming weather information, and one for setting back the temperature when the user is away. The Lyric thermostat provides alerts on when to change a filter, if and when the furnace needs servicing, and helps find a contractor.
