The thermostat packs some one of features that have not been seen before.

Lyric thermostat includes the ‘Fine Tune’ feature that can intelligently adjust the temperature based on “indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, and the current weather” as part of its algorithm, somethingHoneywell claims no others currently do.

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 takesyou. Learn how the Lyric app can give you comfort when you’re home and energy savings when you’re away.
