PostSubject: Honeywell Lyric   Tue Apr 18, 2017 5:07 am

Although I'm happy with the Nest thermostat in this house, I've been seeing competing products come on the market that do essentially the same things for a lot less money.

Case in point, the Honeywell Lyric. It's $150 instead of $250.

So we bought one to try out at the new house. Couldn't get it to power up last night, but then the furnace seems to be turned off too. Breaker is on, but as soon as you flip the switch on the furnace itself it starts to power up and then shuts right down. We'll have to see what's going on. The gas valve shows gas is on. It worked last week.

Lyric has a phone app, same as Nest.

Will report back on capabilities.

Not every furnace will work with every thermostat.

Update: in late April I called Honeywell, and they walked me through moving the green wire -- which is used for activating the fan separately -- over to the ground connection, which I didn't have but needed.  Don't need the fan.

But the Lyric 'stat still didn't work because it requires wi-fi for setup(!)

So I didn't actually get to set it up until Comcast moved my service yesterday.  The setup was straight-forward, the functions logical, and the capabilities very similar to Nest.  I'll kinda miss Nest's intuitive temperature change -- grab the rim and rotate it up or down -- but Lyric's "+" and "-" touch screen controls aren't bad either.

Everything worked first time, and well.

Both have iOS apps that allow you to control the temp from anywhere.
