This week Honeywell revealed their latest connected thermostat, called the Honeywell Lyric T6, it has been built to be integrated with Apple’s HomeKit system, allowing you to control it with Siri, or with the Apple Home application.
The new smart thermostat also features geofencing technology that allows it to detect when you have left your house, or when you are on the way back.
Lyric T6 will automatically switch to an energy saving mode when you leave, and automatically switch back on fully when you are on your way back.
You can also set it to run on seven day or daily schedules if you don’t want it to do that every time you leave the house.
On top of that, Honeywell’s Lyric app will also allow you to control the thermostat on the go, with functions that allow you to control the temperature, as long as you have an internet connection.
It will also let you know if your home’s temperature is too hot, or too cold, and have it learn heating cycles automatically and adjust the temperature accordingly.
There’s two versions of this smart thermostat, the T6 for a wall fixing, and the T6R, which is a wireless version that can be placed anywhere.
You can pick one up online today, or through a plumbing or heating installer.
