Round is cool again! Honeywell introduced the T87 Round thermostats when Ken Smyers, the man, the myth, the legend was but a mere tike. Round gave way to rectangular shaped thermostats and round stats got lost in the thermostatic style wars. It took a guy from Apple, Tony Fadell, to make round cool again when he introduced the Nest thermostat a couple of years ago.
Not to be out done, Honeywell, the original purveyors of round, packed over 100 years of Honeywell control know-how into the ultra cool Honeywell Lyric. Are the Honeywell Lyric and Nest the two front runners in the 2014 Residential Thermostat of The Year Award? Will round triumph over rectangular?
There is only one way to find out…stay tuned for the 2014 ControlTrends Awards.
