wow. how good can a thermostat be. this one.....excellent
After debating which smart thermostat to buy for both function and looks, I decided one this Honeywell lyric t6 wired unit. Turned up and thought Id need assistance to get it wired up and working. How wrong could I be. This was used to replace existing 3 wired room stat as most specify at least 4 wires requured this only needs 2 from boiler to thermostat. Installed and running within the hour. The grey / black look fits in perfect with our decor couldnt have been more perfect The lyric app works great too and if you forget to turn the heating off you can turn it off anywhere so long as you have internet signal. Not tried the unique geofencing part to it yet but will in the future. Now looking at upgrading to more smart home products after being left so impressed with this one.
Bought this to replace an 25 year old Honeywell analog thermostat and am very pleased with the results. The CM 907 gives great versatility with 6 programmable periods per day. Have found that to be more than I need but its easy to disable periods if not needed and 4 periods has been the optimum so far. Very easy to swap the new unit for the old one. 2 wires and the whole thing done in 15 mins. Programming instructions were easy to follow but with hindsight I should have used the default settings for a week and then edited from that to what I need. Temperature control is so much more precise than before so far less overshoot in operation.
Maintains a stable temperature, this is helped by the cycling that can be setup in installation mode. For my old cast iron gas boiler I use the oil boiler cycle settings. Above the set temp the thermostat is fully off so no worries there. Likewise below the set temp the thermostat is fully on. Much better than my previous digital thermostat and the relay click some people complain about isn't that load. Anyway copper pipes make clicks as they expaned with heat. I set the ECO mode to 16 which has a countdown timer that I use while i'm at work, Well recommended!
Purchased this to replace old timer that only did 24hr settings. We wanted more control over weekday/weekend timings so went for this model. So easy to instal and set up. Clever copy to other days feature once you have set times for first day. Saves time and settings for days if the power goes off so no need to put all timings back in the device. Very clear backlit display. Easy on off without having to alter settings if heating/water is required outside of set times
So Far So Good
This product is simply the Randall 3060 by another name. Why they have had to change the name god only knows. Isn't life complicated enough. Thank the lord that spades and forks and still called spades and forks and we don't have to write a review every time we purchase a new one. I'm hoping to purchase a ball of garden twine next week. The Lord Harry only knows how I'm going to generate enough enthusiasm to review a ball of string. The World has gone MAD.
