We say it loud and we say it proud: We are lovers of convenience. We enjoy making homemade feasts but won’t pass up the opportunity to purchase anything pre-sliced or pre-seasoned. We love working with design pieces that serve multiple functions, like storage doubling as a work surface, so we kill two birds with one pretty stone. All of these patterns have culminated into our latest and greatest find of ultimate convenience: Honeywell’s Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat and Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector. These two seemingly simple products have not only made our inner techies jump for joy, but we’ve found it incredibly easy and -you guessed it, convenient- to incorporate these systems into our daily lives.
The Lyric Wi-Fi Thermostat: The Gamechanger
The Lyric thermostat truly adapts to your life. We can control it from absolutely anywhere– our living room, the car, the office, or after-work happy hour via our phones or tablets. If we don’t feel like choosing our optimal temperature, Lyric will also manage our comfort (and savings) automatically, so we don’t have to punch in a rigid schedule or learn any new technologies.
Aside from its ease of use, its setup was totally hassle-free. We’ll be the first to say that if something isn’t easy to install, it’s unlikely to get put in our homes. However, Lyric was as simple as pie. We just had to make sure it was compatible with our space, and then we let the app guide us the rest of the way.
If you’re still hesitant, don’t worry. The Honeywell team put together a list of FAQ’s all about the Lyric Thermostat, from step-by-step setup assistance, to setting up your Wi-Fi signal.
The Wi-Fi Leak + Freeze Detector: The Safety Net
In California, we’re always worried about water. If we have enough, if it will ever rain, and if there’s a pesky leak, especially near our covered outdoor kitchen patios. That’s why we were thrilled when our Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector came in the mail and promised us a warning system that would notify us when something has gone awry. The Lyric Water Leak and Freeze Detector simply sends our iPhone a quick alert telling us if there was a drop in the temperature, or a leak has sprung. By catching it early, we’ve been able to avoid inconvenient repairs to our deck and outdoor kitchen furnishings!
Similar to the Lyric Wi-Fi Thermostat, setup couldn’t have been easier. The Honeywell team created a thoughtful and intuitive app that guides you through setup and maintenance so you never have to mess with the system once it’s been installed. Perfect.
In summation, we don’t know how we’ve ever lived without these products! Not only are they incredibly efficient and convenient, but they are clean and sleek so they don’t add any element of clunkiness to our home’s design. Setting up alerts and notifications for the pieces is easier than scheduling a dinner date in your iPhone calendar, and we’ve never had a problem with the system’s check-ins and alerts. And the pieces fit so well into our home’s aesthetic; you can barely tell anything is there!
