Honeywell debuts Lyric, the smart thermostat with Android operability

Honeywell has introduced its latest smart thermostat, the gorgeously simple Nest-like Lyric. Set to hit retailers in August, the $279 device is already being offered through professional heating and cooling contractors. As you might have already guessed, the Lyric can be controlled via your Android or iOS device.

With the Lyric app, homeowners can adjust their home’s temperature to life as it happens, wherever they are.

The Lyric features a gloss white finish with silver accents and offers shallow depth; it will surely class up any room in our house.

Why the “Lyric” name, you ask? It has something to do with being fine-tuned and better than the competition.

  • Using the location of your smartphone, the geofencing feature automatically turns the Lyric thermostat into energy saving mode when a home is empty, and then senses when you are coming home and heats or cools the house to your preferred temperature.
  • 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. No other do-it-yourself Wi-Fi thermostat on the market today does that.
