Feels Like Home
March 14, 2016
No matter how busy you may be, staying safe and comfortable are among the most important aspects that make a house feel like a home. In today's increasingly connected and fast-paced world, your time at home varies, making energy usage and utilities difficult to manage. Now's the time to move your home into the smart age. Honeywell's new, second generation Lyric Round' Wi-Fi Thermostat can be the perfect first step toward a smart, connected home, offering comfort, savings, and easy control.
With a modern, round design the new Lyric thermostat adds a fresh look to the wall, and comes with a host of refined features:
- Customizable Geofencing &endash; Using a smartphone's location services, Lyric can identify when you are home or away. It will automatically turn down the heat or air conditioning when you're not home, and turn it back on as the first person nears home (such as five miles away).
- Apple HomeKit' and Apple Watch® Compatibility* &endash; Easily and securely control Lyric via special actions, connect to other HomeKit-enabled devices in the home, and even access Lyric using the Apple Watch.
- Voice Control with Siri® &endash; Change the temperature by simply telling Siri to make it hotter or cooler, and use set and custom commands with any compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch*.
“Lyric is comfort made simple. With no complex menus, the Lyric thermostat offers a fun and engaging way to control the comfort of your home any way you like,” says Honeywell design director, Ted Booth.
Making your home simpler to manage, through easy-to-use comfort solutions, the new Lyric thermostat is a do-it-yourself install and comes with complete, step-by-step, in-app instructions to guide customers along the way. It can even interact with other connected devices and services from compatible partners, including Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT, and others.
The Lyric Thermostat is the first product in our innovative Lyric Connected Home platform - products, software and mobile apps that are designed to fit perfectly into your home and life. The Lyric Home Security System, a professionally installed and monitored security system that integrates with the Lyric Thermostat as well as a range of home automation products like lighting, shades and lock controls, will be available for consumers in April 2016. The Honeywell Lyric WiFi Water Leak and Freeze Detector recently received the CES 2016 Editors' Choice Award.
