Honeywell Lyric

While it looks suspiciously similar to the other smart thermostat that first piqued our interest in intelligent home energy management, Honeywell’s Lyric easily holds its own against its well-nested rival, both aesthetically and feature-wise. This sharp, connected thermostat allows control from anywhere using just a smartphone, with geofencing support to automatically adjust based on your location and predicted destination, saving electricity and, by consequence, money. It’ll also keep tabs on your maintenance schedule, takes commands via customizable shortcuts to attain optimal temperatures for different events (like when you’re away, or having people over), and keeps things comfortable via Fine Tune, which considers indoor temperature as well as indoor humidity and outdoor conditions while heating or cooling your home.
