The Lyric Round thermostat is one of Honeywell's most innovative products. Honeywell's involvement in HVAC dates back over 125 years. Obviously there have been many mechanical and technological improvements over the last century. The Lyric Round bundles all of todays features into a beautiful, compact device that is designed for comfort and convenience. While it does not integrate with the LYNX Plus or LYNX Touch series security systems, it does work with the popular Lyric Controller!
One of the most innovative features of the Lyric is it's Geofencing capabilities. Using a smart phone app (android and iOS based), the beautiful WIFI thermostat can quickly determine whether it ought to turn on the heating or cooling. Additionally, the thermostat has added functionality that previous thermostats have not included, such as the ability to tell an user what the weather is as well as the ability to set the thermostat into away mode.
There are currently two generations of the Lyric Round WIFI thermostat. The first generation of this thermostat ( TH8732WF5018 ) was a similar design and offered geofencing technology. This iteration only supported two geofence settings: quarter mile or 7 mile. Lyric Round owners and installers have praised the improvements to this thermostat on the 2nd generation to allow for customizable distances.
The second generation Lyric Round ( RCH9310WF ) may look very similar if not exactly the same. However there are loads of improvements including the touted 3rd party integrations with technologies like Apple HomeKit, Samsung Smartthings and Amazon Alexa. Before the GeoFencing within the Lyric app granted some very cool functions. The sky is the limit for the Lyric thermostat platform. Especially now with these types of third party developers involved.
Please note that we will ship the latest generation available at time of purchase.
