Honeywell keeps coming up with cool stuff. Yes, thermostats are cool, because there are different shapes, sizes, colors, and apps. But, look at this video to see how Honeywell takes the cool thermostat to the next level and makes it practical. No need to worry about coming home and finding out your pipe burst or a leak turned into a flood. The Honeywell Lyric will let you know before problems get out of hand. I wonder what else they will hang onto their residential thermostat network?
The 2014 ControlTrends Awards Residential Thermostat of the Year promises to be a very competitve race. The Honeywell Lyric faces stiff competition from the likes of Nest, Ecobee, Entouch, and the Honeywell RedLink. Our friends at CNET give you their thoughts on the new Honeywell Lyric.
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.
