      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.

Installation as far as wiring was a piece of cake but programming it through the app is a different story... Every time i have tried to connect the device to the app and to WIFI, i get a "Device not found error".. I have called tech support several times and the issue still has not been resolved, So i am going to box the piece of sh@# up and send it back... THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS.....DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

      Works wonderfully with native App not with homekit

      Nothing but issues with this thermostat and it’s conn to HomeKit. Half the time I try to use Siri with this product it becomes non responsive. I’ve tried troub Nothing but issues with this thermostat and it’s conn to HomeKit. Half the time I try to use Siri with this product it becomes non responsive. I’ve tried troubleshooting to no avail even swapped for a new thermostat still does not work properly. Trouble shooting steps included multiple factory resets, Assigning the Lyric a static IP, assigning it it’s own 2.4 ghz network on its own LAN, putting it on a mesh network. So far nothing has solved my problem and Honeywell points the finger at Apple. It’s been almost a year of this nonsense and it’s still not fixed.

      So close and yet so far...

      Installing the T5 was easy but the instructions that come with it are horrible. They attempted to write the instructions so that anyone could install it. They Installing the T5 was easy but the instructions that come with it are horrible. They attempted to write the instructions so that anyone could install it. They succeeded in making the instructions a bunch of gibberish. Luckily this is the age of google and a quick search solved that problem. Installing the app is also easy. Set it up on 2 iphones and programmed the geofencing. Worked like a charm, kept temps as programmed and sent notifications when I crossed the boundary. On the 4th day it stopped sending notifications and no longer recognized 2nd phone. 5th day, it didn't recognize either phone. I finally got an email from Lyric with 2 steps to try. Did the 2 steps and sent them an email saying it didn't work. This is the response I got. "I am truly sorry that you are having issues with your Lyric T5. Please keep in mind that if you wish to proceed with the troubleshoots we are more than happy to help." I bought the T5 because of the geofencing but now I have to use the daily program mode. Better than a regular t'stat, but not what was promised. If the unit had kept working as it did for the first 3 days I would be writing a completely different review. I think the T5 itself is not the problem. The app however, seems fairly glitchy. The support is abysmal, emails are not the way to trouble shoot something like this.
