If you’re tired of pressing buttons and twisting dials but you still want a smart thermostat that can help you save money and can be controlled by Alexa, the Honeywell Lyric T5 Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. This thermostat costs a fraction of what you’d pay for a Nest and yet is has one nice feature the Nest does not: a touchscreen. That’s right, no more twisting that dial or pushing buttons. The T5 also has all the smart features you want, including geofencing, and it’s on sale right now on Amazon for under $100.
It’s designed to work well with Amazon Alexa’s voice control, so you don’t need to worry about it not being compatible with your other smart home devices. In fact, this smart thermostat allows you to control your smart home using Alexa or Apple Home Kit voice control using Siri. The device uses geofencing technology in order to accurately keep track of your phone’s location and is designed with the Lyric T5 which is able to determine if the home temperature system should be set to heating or cooling mode giving you the utmost comfort without any effort.
