    Best Thermostat!

    • Written by Chandelor A from Topeka

    This thermostat is the best HomeKit compatible thermostat for the price. It took me a little while to setup because we had to run a jumper wire due to the age of our old thermostat. Honeywell customer support was so helpful throughout the process. If you put it together and you’re not getting power to it or HomeKit isn’t work it could be due to the “C Wire.” Once I figured this out it operated perfectly. We’ve had it for over a year now and it has functioned flawlessly. The HomePod interacts with it perfectly! I also love the monthly energy reports emailed to me from Honeywell. I highly recommend this thermostat. You won’t be disappointed! Utilize Honeywell customer support if you run into any challenges during the setup.

    Great product !!!

    • Written by Barry I from Walnut Creek

    This device was easy to install, program and manage from day one...
    It does everything I need in a single zone thermostat. Compatible with all digital assistants including Apple.
    Favorite features include: Geofencing which works amazingly well; Remote control from the app when away; automatic vacation advanced planning.
    And the price is right !!!

    Works nearly perfectly

    • Written by Jim M from Poway

    I really don't understand the problems or issues of the other reviews... I've had my T-6 (same as T-5 just different color) for 5 months now. I LOVE IT.

    My thermostat installed in like 15 minutes start to finish. My son installed it, not a pro.

    Setup was easy. App works great, love showing it off to people!

    I typically use geofencing to reduce power usage while I'm away from the house, it works VERY well.
    While home, it maintains a very even temperature.

    Issues:
    It has lost connection to wifi 1 time (my wifi is finicky and is reset at least weekly). That's better than the rest of my smart home.
    I simply pulled the thermostat, waited a few seconds, and in 5 seconds it was up and running.

    I'd say this deserves 5 stars for a great thermostat, great app, and arriving home to a comfortable setting!

    Future Look:
    My only wish would be a sensor so that when people leave doors and windows open that it wouldn't even try to heat/cool the house! After a minute or so of being left open, it should send a msg to me and shut off. Honeywell, here's a great idea!!!

    Love this thermostat. Great product Honeywell.

    • Written by Jason B from New Albany

    I installed it in February. I am only 26 & I was able to hook it up & get it firmware updated. The geothermal feature is nice. It is IFTTT compatible too. For example everyday at 5pm change temp to 72 degrees. I can't tell you how many times I've been upstairs in my bed & said "Hey Siri change temperature to 72 degrees." Instead of walking down stairs to change temperature like I use to. I have a Quiet Comfort Honeywell Tower fan upstairs too. Love love love this thermostat.

    It's great

    • Written by Joshua W from Clarksville

    easy install. Works great. apple home kit or the native app. It's hard to overstate how delightful it is to tell siri to turn the heat down.

    All is well in the Lyric/Apple world

    • Written by Leslie G from Saginaw

    The product was easy to install with the exception that it didn't turn on. I called the help line given for Honeywell and talked with someone who knew the product and pointed me right to the problem which was that The Lyric needed all five wires whereas my old Thermostat made do without the common wire. I ran the extra wire and The thermostat ran. Although I had some difficulties with the communication and app and thermostat, the app was pretty straightforward about how and what to do at any step of the way and it was relatively easy to start over or continue from some mid point. I did get confused with the perpetual naming of things but it was easy to sort out later and made more sense when I installed the second thermostat upstairs. I then installed the app on my wife's phone and when both of us are outside the geofence, the thermostats go into the away settings. When either of us get within the geofence, it goes to the at home settings. Linked them up to Apples Home App and that was maybe even easier however, only the Honeywell app allows you to change your geofence settings. Occasionally, I lose communication with the thermostats and they think I'm away and go to away settings even though I can use the phone to override the temperature setting and I can always manually override right at the thermostat. Honeywell sends me a message to alert me to the problem along with a phone number to call but the communication has always come back within 24 hours, so I never tried that. So I'd say that as easy as it was for me to get off track, it was just as easy if not easier to get back on track. I love how the thermostats work and how easy it is to tweak the settings while for the most part, I do not do anything with the thermostat and always have the right temperature.

    Simple installation and operation; excellent thermostat

    • Written by Kristofer L from Minneapolis

    The negative reviews here are perplexing, as I've had a very pleasant experience with this excellent product. Set-up took just 10-15 minutes, and the app is very pleasant and easy to use. I particularly like the scheduling feature -- the interface couldn't be any easier to use.

    I highly recommend this thermostat. It's my first connected home device, and I'll certainly be buying more from Honeywell as they release more of them. Kudos!

    Easy set-up, and works

    • Written by Jondavid M from Tampa

    I was a little discouraged after reading some of the reviews on this page but I bought the thing anyway. I have to say after fewer than thirty minutes of set-up which was not at all as hard as I imagined, this thing was working with the app and my homekit.

    I'm assuming there have been some major updates to the software since some of these negative reviews were written because the set-up went smoothly and I can control the thermostat from anywhere via the app. When I am at home, I can ask Siri to adjust the thermostat and have had no issues with that.

    The best part is the geo-fencing. When I leave the radius around my house that I set, it changed my status to "away" and adjusted my thermostat accordingly (85 was the preset but you can adjust these numbers too). When I am on my way home from work and enter the radius again, it sets it back to my preferred temperature (72) and my house is cool by the time I get home.

    No problems with setup at all.

    • Written by Josh B from Riverview

    I just installed my T5 and I didn't have any issues at all the setup was a breeze and so was the install. The app is working as intended which is great and I have 0 complaints with this thermostat. Not sure why all the other reviews on here are so negative all I can assume is user error...
