Comfort Made Simple
Introducing the Honeywell Lyric thermostat. The next Generation of smart technology from the company that invented the Round thermostat. No learning curve, no rigid scheduling - just comfort and control.
Lyric was designed with your dynamic schedule in mind. We moved the thermostat controls to your smart device, so you stay connected no matter where the day takes you. You come and go at different times each day. No two are the same. Lyric automatically adjusts to your activity so you can go about your life as usual. No rigid scheduling. No learning period. Just comfort when you're home and savings when you're away. The Lyric thermostat helps you save money without sacrificing your comfort. How? By helping you reduce your homes energy use whenever possible like when you're sleeping or when you're gone. So you get comfort when you're home and savings when you're away.
Enjoy convenient remote control from your smartphone or tablet using an iOS or Android app:

Comfort is about more than just the temperature. Humidity levels have an equally big impact on how your home feels, so optimizing both factors means a comfortable home - no matter the weather. Fine Tune mode is a more advanced way of keeping you comfortable by taking into consideration the indoor temperature, indoor humidity, and outdoor conditions.
Honeywell is changing the way you think about comfort. Leaving the house? Enable geofencing, and the Lyric thermostat will automatically adjust based on your smartphone's location. Or, tap the Away button on your thermostat to set the temperature back while you're gone. The result? Comfort when you're home and savings when you're away.
Tailor your comfort to any situation, at the touch of a button. Create unique shortcuts for unique situations, or, save the shortcuts you really like and they'll be available on your app any time you want. Customizable comfort has never been so simple.
Do you forget how often you're supposed to change your filters? Don't worry. Lyric will send you a reminder when it's time for a change.
The Lyric thermostat sends alerts directly to your smartphone in case of extreme temperature or irregularities in your heating and cooling system. So with alerts, you can stay comfortably connected, even when you're away.
The Lyric thermostat monitors your system to ensure you don't get any unwanted surprises - like a winter furnace failure. It also gives you the flexibility to locate a heating and cooling professional who can view and diagnose your system remotely.
Thermostat Wiring Compatibility - Will the Lyric thermostat work with my system?
If your current thermostat has thick wires connected using wire nuts, the Lyric thermostat isn't compatible. The Lyric thermostat is designed to work on most low voltage systems including gas and oil furnaces, heat pumps, and hot water systems. The thermostat can also support multi stage systems with more than one stage of heating and cooling. The Lyric thermostat does not work on 110V or higher line voltage systems.
Wi-Fi Compatibility - Which Wi-Fi networks are compatible with Honeywell's Wi-Fi thermostats?
The Lyric Thermostat only operates in the 2.4GHz range. Additionally, the router network needs to be setup for Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP). Honeywell's Wi-Fi thermostats are compatible with the 2.4 GHz B, G, N and Mixed Wi-Fi Networks.
Phone Compatibility - Which mobile devices work with my Lyric thermostat and app?
The Lyric thermostat is compatible with Apple smart phones and tablets using iOS 6 and above as well as Android smart phones and tablets using Gingerbread 2.3.4 and above.

- Accurate, well-made Review by mophead
An interesting installation procedure, wherein you go on the web, download the app, then go through the installation procedure while online. There is no written manual. I used my iPad Mini, propped up next to the thermostat, to follow along. Installation was straightforward; remove the old, making note of which wire goes where, then install the new, inserting the wires in the clearly marked holes. One issue I had was that the wires needed to be pushed further into the holes than was obvious. Otherwise, the connections were not tight enough to make a proper connection.
After the hardwire installation, follow the instructions to set up the wifi, being sure to select the Lyric wifi connection instead of your home wifi. After setup, your home wifi takes over again.
The wifi setup went smoothly, and the Lyric began working immediately. Several very nice features include:
Setting the thermostat from the app on my iPhone or iPad, either at home or away.
Programming the Lyric for away-from-home temps, and for at-home temps.
The Lyric can be programmed to set various temps at various times of the day, like a typical programmable thermostat.
The Lyric adjusts for humidity levels.
The Lyric knows what the weather is outside, and compensates accordingly.
You can also adjust the thermostat at the wall by simply turning the round display.
So far, I am very pleased with the performance of the Lyric and can recommend it. The house feels more comfortable, somehow, and I suspect that it's due to the compensation of the Lyric for humidity and outside conditions.

- Great "Smart" Thermostat Review by Sarah
Great "Smart" Thermostat
I recently installed the Lyric Thermostat in my home. I've been considering a similar thermostat but from another brand for awhile but then I saw this one and decided to go with it since it is the same brand (Honeywell) as the thermostat I already had. I was a little worried about installation since I didn't want to pay an electrician to come out. It ended up being easy to install and only took about 45 minutes. I had to call customer service because I have a non-standard wiring connection but the person I spoke to was great and walked me through it. I have to patch the wall a bit since the Lyric unit is smaller than my old one, even with the included backplate. Even so, a great aesthetic improvement over the old rectangular models. Before you install you have to install the app on your smartphone (I have an iPhone). It sends you a confirmation email, I got mine in less than a minute. Then you can use the app to fine tune your use. So far I have found the app to be simple and intuitive. My husband also installed the app on his phone and I love that we can so seamlessly both have the Lyric linked to us since obviously we're not always both home at the same time. I've been pleased with how it can "learn" to use less AC when no one is home and while we have only had it a short while I think the benefits will be apparent in how much we spend on heating and cooling. Furthermore, the smart phone capabilities that enable us to turn it off if we leave home and forget to adjust it or turn it back on as we're heading home are great. There are even more advanced settings but to be honest the basic settings are such an improvement that I haven't even spent much time tinkering with them yet. We have two zones for our AC and heat and I look forward to getting a Lyric for our other zone so we can maximize our efficiency.

- Not ready for prime time Review by RXG2
Not ready for prime time
Bought unit and worked fine for awhile. Liked the geofencing feature that uses your phone location to know if you're leaving or coming home. Then the software and hardware issues started less than a month old. 4 wire version is supposed to use 'power stealing' to charge itself and is not ready for public release - they had me send it back for refund with no Lyric replacement. Don't know if a 5 wire system with a common works any better. 2/12/15

- Not what I expected Review by TonyC
Not what I expected
My biggest gripe is the lack of a manual. Its is not intuitive and its hard to tell what is going on or what state its in. I think it has potential but needs a manual.
