    USed to work with Homekit until Lyric app was updated

    • Written by Diane L from Lake Worth

    I purchased this app a few months ago and it worked with the Homekit. Then Honeywell Lyric updated the app and now it doesn't work with Homekit. Not sure if it is Homekit or Lyric fault. Can't seem to find any information on this.

    Professional install, easy app setup, couldn't be happier

    • Written by Robert M from Ballston Spa

    We had two of these installed along with new AC systems for our house. The techs hadn't installed a lyric before but had no trouble with them. They did need to run a common wire, but this wasn't a set back. There's no way I could have installed these myself without pulling my hair out. However, for the guys that work with these all day...it was a breeze.

    They were amazed at how quickly I got everything going with the Lyric app on my phone. Once they left I quickly had it setup with HomeKit and was able to share the controls with my wife. I think these look great compared to the standard white/beige units I'm used to seeing in homes.

    The verdict is still out on long term performance, but I'll circle back once I've had a few months to test these out.

    Good thermostat mediocre app.

    • Written by P Gregory K from Cochrane

    This thermostat does what I wanted it to do and provides a much more accurate control of the heat in cold winter months. It allows me to use the furnace fan for my passive HRV (heat recovery ventilator) based on a percentage of time operating. The geofencing function works well allowing me to set an away temperature and the distance from home where this kicks in. It also allows me to control the temperature from my iPhone and with Siri. Unfortunately the Lyric software doesn't allow you to make all the adjustments available from the thermostat, and some of the functions are difficult to find. Honeywell is from the traditional thermostat world which would explain the mediocre software. Hopefully they will improve the software to match the quality of the hardware.

    Got up and going quickly, slight snag with app

    • Written by hung L from Oakland

    I got this as a Christmas gift and installed in on the 26th. Swap from the old thermostat was straightforward. It took me two tries to properly get registered with the Lyric app, and another two tries to get HomeKit to find the device, but I'm all set now. Probably 30 mins after the hardware swap, and most of that time was waiting for updates. Not using it through the Apple TV, just iPhones.

    Programming the schedule does not seems complicated. Siri responds as expected.

    One unanswered question though- how does the geofencing work with the app installed on two different phones? I have it installed on both my phone and my wife's phone. What happens when just one of us is out of the area?
