Honeywell Wi-Fi-enabled ‘Lyric Round’ Thermostat System Comes with HomeKit Integration

Good news for Thermostat users as the world famous name Honeywell announced its first HomeKit-enabled product, introducing a second-generation Lyric Round Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat with HomeKit support.

With other Homekit-compatible thermostats like the ecobee3 and the iDevices thermostat, the Honeywell Lyric is designed to compete with existing HomeKit-compatible thermostats and connects to a home’s Wi-Fi network to allow the thermostat to be controlled via Siri or by using an iOS device and the accompanying app. So, it can be controlled by smartphone also.

How does the device look like?
The new HomeKit-enabled Lyric thermostat is identical in design to the original Lyric thermostat, featuring:


i)  a round body and a 3-inch polished glass face that clearly displays
    the current temperature and the target temperature.
ii) It includes a touchscreen interface for changing the temperature
    directly from the device, and it offers motion-sensing illumination.

Control it with an iPhone
The Lyric can be controlled with an iPhone either at home or remotely, with the accompanying app and with HomeKit integration, it will respond to Siri voice commands and interface with other HomeKit products.

App-based features include location-based temperature control for automatic adjustment when a user is away from home, smart alerts for filter changes and extreme indoor temperatures, and intelligent comfort control that takes into account both humidity and temperature.
Price and Availability

Honeywell’s new Lyric Round Thermostat is priced at $249.99 and is available for pre-order from the Honeywell website starting today. Orders are expected to ship out at the end of January.
