Some things in life have gotten complicated. Buying crackers is now a matter of navigating through countless options of low-sodium, non-GMO, gluten-free, fennel-and-artichoke flavoured selections available in thin, extra-thin, and ultra-thin options. Fortunately, in mankind’s endless plod towards progress, a few select things have actually gotten easier, like programming a thermostat.
Honeywell's Lyric series has granted homeowners the opportunity to get a product that's easy to install, easy to run, and even easier to maintain. Lyric learns preferences and patterns automatically, and adjusts to any lifestyle. It takes note of an empty house and dials back heating and air-conditioning to a more efficient state, then resumes its usual patterns upon your return.
If you’re someone who appreciates simplicity, all you need to know is that this thermostat saves you time, effort, and money. If you’re the sort of person who appreciates intricacies, you’ll be pleased to know that Lyric also interfaces seamlessly with Apple Homekit, Amazon Echo, IFTTT, and other home automation systems. The Lyric app (available for both Android and iOS devices) allows you to make changes from anywhere – crank up air conditioning from work if you’re coming home early on a hot summer day, change vacation mode settings from afar, or turn the furnace on early from the warmth of your bed without leaving the covers.
By spending less time, effort, and money on keeping your home comfortable, you can now spend all the time you want doing other things… or buying complicated crackers.
