      Does not connect with HomeKit

      Honeywell cannot even get it to connect via their own app never mind HomeKit. Run from this product!

      Setup is Simple, Operating the device...not so much

The software setup was quite intuitive, since the Lyric app is well-suited for installation. In the final part of the setup process, the Lyric app automatically added the thermostats to my HomeKit. Here's the not-so-good: As stand-alone thermostats, the T5 is what you would expect from a standard programmable unit, albeit with a really nice touch display interface. Unfortunately, programming via the app conjures up memories of trying to program the clock on my VCR in 1992 (flashing 12:00, anyone?). The interface is abysmal, and you're not really sure if you have accomplished what you wanted to do. For example, you can manually program a schedule into the thermostat, but you have no way to see the program from the lyric app. And if you want to use the Geofence option to adjust to "away" mode when you leave your house, there is no way (either on the phone or on the unit itself!) to setup any "away" temperature settings. Isn't this the point of geofence? Homekit: Seems to work perfectly, assuming you have a current AppleTV or extra iPad lying around the house to act as the brains. Apple has done a really nice job with this. Summary: The hardware is good, but the cr@ppy Lyric app severely cripple the functionality of the device. I would give 5 stars if the app allowed better control & functionality of the device. 2 stars.

      Couldn't get the product to work, nor support to troubleshoot

      I bought two of these. I couldn't get either to work in two different zones in my house. Instructions were simple and to the point, but the devices wouldn't eve I bought two of these. I couldn't get either to work in two different zones in my house. Instructions were simple and to the point, but the devices wouldn't even turn on. I called Tech Support and the IVR told me that there were elongated wait times so for me to "try calling later." Then it hung up on me. So I tweeted about how ridiculous that was and Honeywell quickly responded asking for details, pictures, etc, which means I had to rewire them back up, including turning my furnace off per their instructions. An hour later my family told me it was getting cold in the house as I was sitting there waiting for tech support to get back to me. So I boxed them back up and returned them. Hours of wasted time.

Sometimes Siri says that the device is not responding. I also hate that it requires a connection to Honeywell’s unreliable servers. I will be selling this junk and replacing it with iDevices thermostat.

      Best Thermostat!

      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 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.

      Connecting I phone 8 to Lyric T6 wireless thermostat

      I had this thermostat fitted four weeks ago, at first I found out through Honeywell that their server was down that was after numerous telephone calls. I now ha I had this thermostat fitted four weeks ago, at first I found out through Honeywell that their server was down that was after numerous telephone calls. I now have talk talk broadband and I am still unable to connect my phone,the thermostat is configured and set up but I get to the very end of trying to pair my phone enter the four digit code and then it tells me “error” unable to connect” I am finding this so very frustrating it has cost us £300 plus all the time wasted for the engineer and ourselves to have a thermostat that is useless, I have a call booked again with Honeywell for Monday, they say it could be “talk talk” can anyone tell me if they have had any issues with talk talk and the connecting of their phones to the thermostat, I would appreciate if anyone has had the same problem for any comments that may help me with this issue.
