      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.

      Product only as good as its weakest lin

      Lots of weak links throughout the software and hardware. Tech-support of any kind is nonexistent. Luckily the AC installer at my house. He called Honeywell. Lots of weak links throughout the software and hardware. Tech-support of any kind is nonexistent. Luckily the AC installer at my house. He called Honeywell. After 15 minutes of back-and-forth, got the app to work. With software loaded on both my iPhone and my iPad the outside temperatures iPhone verifies correct reading; 72°F; conflicts with the iPad reading 91°F. The sleep option cycle does not integrate with manual operations correctly. Could not fix these design failures . Geo fence seems to operate as though the two devices don't recognize each other… If one is away both are away. The home/away settings on the thermostat appear to override the geo-fence. Fortunately you can override everything by manually changing the temperature on your iPhone. This is not a set it and forget it system. Also the lack of confirmation of existing sittings leaves doubt as to the system status. Honeywell… Burn me once shame on you… Never again… No shame on me for sure. This device came with my air conditioner. I should've done my own research. You have some good ideas… Your execution is abysmal.

      Works nearly perfectly

      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. M 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!!!

      OK thermostat terrible app

      Purchased the Lyric T5, mounted it on the wall, connected the wires as per instructions. Install is straight forward, however setting up the app to finish insta Purchased the Lyric T5, mounted it on the wall, connected the wires as per instructions. Install is straight forward, however setting up the app to finish installation is anything but simple. After an estimated 15 attempts I did finish the set up and for the past month have been using my iPhone 6s to control the thermostat. Twice during the last 30 days the app would lose connection with the thermostat and I had to go through the whole set up process again to reconnect. Yesterday after going through the entire set up process with no luck I called tech support and after a 45 minute call did get the thermostat working again but still no wifi connection with the app. I live in Florida and after 45 minutes of no AC we gave up trying to get the app to work. Yes the process does shut off the AC. Today called tech support again, deleted the app, reloaded the app, went through another 50 minutes of tech support and still could not get the app to finish the set up. The tech said there was a problem on their end and he opened a tech support request to try and resolve the issue. Life is too short to continue to deal with this. FYI if you go to the app and click on the 3 lines on the top left to show the settings screen and push and hold the word "home" it brings up a debug screen you can email to tech support so they can see the issues. I'm returning the Lyric to Home Depot. Don't have the patience to deal with it.
