Honeywell introduces the second-generation Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat

Honeywell introduces the second-generation Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat, now compatible with Apple HomeKit for control using Siri, and easy integration into other current smart building systems.

The second generation Lyric thermostat is ideal for those who want the freedom to stay in touch with their connected systems to maximize savings and comfort. Installers can access the on-screen menu for installation right at the thermostat or by using the Lyric app, making installation faster and easier. Using a customer’s smartphone location, the thermostat can automatically adjust the temperature as they come and go, known as customizable geofencing—delivering comfort when they’re at the location and savings when they’re away.

The second generation Lyric thermostat is compatible with 24-volt systems such as forced air, hydronic, heat pump, oil, gas and electric and features the same sleek aesthetic and intuitive features of the original, such as location-based, customized temperature control. It also can be easily integrated into other smart building ecosystems, such as Samsung SmartThings, and can link to many products and services that customers choose.

For installers, the second generation Lyric provides:

  • Easy setup: Take care of installation and setup right at the thermostat or through the Lyric app.
  • Added Value: With products that deliver comfort, convenience and remote diagnostics, contractors can provide more proactive service to the customer beyond the initial sale.
  • Ecosystem Integration: The contractor is now able to offer an integration into smart building ecosystems.

For building owners, key features and updates for the Lyric thermostat and app include:

  • Customizable Geofencing – Consumers can create a custom geofence map and distance.
  • Smart Alerts – The Lyric thermostat can send reminders about filter changes, warn of extreme temperatures and humidity, and more.
  • Intelligent Comfort Control – To make sure 72 degrees feels like 72 degrees, the Lyric thermostat considers temperature and humidity to maintain comfort, and can also work with your system to adjust humidity levels.
  • Custom Shortcuts – Create a dynamic heating/cooling schedule, and set up recurring event triggers with a single touch of the thermostat or app.
