Heating controls specialist Honeywell has launched the next generation of programmable thermostat, the Lyric T6.

The Lyric T6 programmable thermostat provides installers with an easy-to-install, flexible, energy efficient heating control, which can be controlled remotely through a dedicated Lyric app.

The thermostat can be managed via tablet or smartphone; has integrated wi-fi connectivity; uses universal icons and a modern touchscreen display; and offers smart energy saving features.

The Lyric T6 also includes location-based temperature control to sense when the homeowner is leaving or returning to the property and adjust the heating accordingly.

It is also compatible with Apple HomeKit, enabling the product to be controlled using an Appleor Android device, and giving the installer the peace of mind that Lyric is compatible with current smart home systems.

Easier and faster for the professional to fit than previous programmable thermostat models, installation has been made even simpler thanks to the flip-up wiring bar, clearly labeled terminals and strain relief. Once installed, set-up is straight forward, guiding the installer through the configuration process with either the modern touch screen or remotely via the intuitive Lyric app, which also detects if all the components are connected correctly.

The programmable thermostat can be used with any boiler or application as a room temperature control in an S Plan or Y Plan system, and it will also control under floor heating manifolds. Available in both the wall-mounted-wired and the wireless models, Lyric T6 is suitable for new installations or upgrades.

OpenTherm connectivity is available in both models, optionally generating even more system advantages, and the programmable thermostat includes features such as optimum start, stop, delayed-start and Time Proportional & Integral control (TPI) boiler to help drive energy efficiency savings for homeowners.
