Welcome to Hometree, home of the stress-free boiler installation. In this review, we’ll be taking a closer look at the Honeywell T6 smart thermostat and we’ll walk you through the model’s installation, compatibility, design, controls and much more.
The Honeywell Lyric T6 smart thermostat could replace your existing manual thermostat, giving you better control of your central heating system. The Lyric T6 is the first Honeywell thermostat to hit the UK with built-in support for Apple HomeKit, which allows you to control all of your smart devices through your iPhone or iPad using the Home app or the voice control using Siri. We always recommend that an experienced heating engineer installs a smart thermostat because the bridge box that connects to your boiler requires mains power and this could be dangerous.
Once the thermostat is wired into the same place as your previous thermostat, the T6 app takes you through the simple setup process for the thermostat. The Honeywell Lyric T6 boasts a modern cuboid design resembling a large keyboard key. If you’d prefer a thermostat with a stand, the Honeywell Lyric T6R is also a popular choice. Thermostats, such as the Nest, offer a more futuristic look, with a clean metallic finish and a circular design, with what looks like a window into the future installed straight on your wall.
With this thermostat, you can use either the app or the onboard interface to control the device. As well as scheduling times, you can also take advantage of the ‘geofencing’ feature that’s available with this thermostat. Simply set a radius around your property and your phone will track your location services to switch your central heating on and off based on your location. Honeywell has built an incredibly responsive and intelligent smart thermostat with the T6.
While competition in the smart thermostat market is quite stiff, the lyric T6 offers a great, simple to use app with flexible scheduling features and the effective use of geolocation technology, all-in-all the Honeywell Lyric T6 is a great entry-level smart thermostat for any homeowner that wants to make the switch from manual or programmable thermostats to the the digital age.
