    works great but not so easy to install , I had to google the blue wire and the app set up because some setting on the cell phone ( data use ) that blocks the install, I only the heather because I installed in winter and so far works great

    I had the Geek Squad install the smart thermostat. But, I love the phone control app.

    Thermostat and remote app are easy to coordinate and load. Offers easy opportunities to control temperatures when away from home. Looks great on the wall, easy to read, easy to use.

    We bought the T5+ to replace a Honeywell WiFi Smart color thermostat because we wanted HomeKit compatibility. It was on sale for $123 and we received a $75 rebate through an energy initiative program. More than happy with this thermostat and app. Easy to install and connect (15 minutes) Seamlessly added to HomeKit and it looks great!

    This thermostat was very easy to install. It had easy to follow instructions and included labels for the wiring so you don't mix up the wires. The app is very easy to use and you can control the temp manually or set a schedule. Excellent product.

    I researched quite a bit on smart thermostats (Nest, Ecobee etc.) before deciding to get Honeywell Lyric T5 for the following reasons: 1) My existing thermostat is a Honeywell so I want to minimize any chances of compatibility issues 2) I didn't need a lot of super smart features (and paying for them) - I just need something that I can control with my phone when I am in or outside of the house 3) I love the features of putting the fan on circulation mode and also the auto mode where the thermostat will decide to turn on the AC or the heating automatically depending on the temperature. These features meant that I can basically leave the system to run on its own with the house always on the right temperature and with the air circulating. 4) You do need a C wire to be able to use this though they have an option to work around that. If you don't currently have a C wire, I suggest getting an electrician to set that up once and for all as I imagine all smart thermostats will need this going forward (the C wire is to power the thermostat so that it can connect to the WiFi etc.) 5) I prefer the Lyric design as it's modern and sleek with it's brushed grayish/black colors. I cannot get used to the round design of Nest for some reason. Also the touch screen interface is much easier to use than Next (though I mostly use my phone app to connect to it). 6) There has been feedback from others around WiFi setup issues but I didn't experience any of that. I have a mesh WiFi setup with Netgear Orbi with both 2.5G and 5G on a single SSID and there were no issues with the Lyric connecting on the 2.5G automatically (it only works on 2.5G).

    I purchased two of these, one for my upstairs HVAC unit and one for my downstairs HVAC unit. With no prior experience I installed them myself using the included instructions, and it went fairly smoothly. I like that they include label stickers for the wires in your wall in case they are not color coded. Connecting to my wifi was also simple. I love the look of the thermostats--very sleek and minimal. The footprint of these are smaller than traditional thermostats, so I'll have to add a little touch up paint to the newly exposed wall area. The thermostats themselves are easy to use, but the app could use some improvement. My main gripe is that you can only use the schedule feature or the geofencing feature, not both. It would have been nice to be able to program a schedule, but then still have the geofencing kick in as a backup when you're away outside of the scheduled hours. Overall I think this thermostat is an excellent, cost-effective alternative to the higher end wifi thermostats out there.
