However, on the big scale of things, they are both small and compact. Some reviewers say that Nest E has a more futuristic design. Here is a major difference between the two, which often keeps people from buying the Lyric T6 model. While Nest E can be installed on your own if you have all the necessary wires already protruding from the wall, Lyric T6 needs professional attention for wiring the UWP mounting system. In both cases, installation is rather quick, especially if you take full advantage of detailed instructions that come in the box. Professional installation may require more time and extra expenses. Even though these two thermostats share a lot of features, they have several key difference,s which can help you make the right choice for your home.

Geofencing vs Nest Home/Away Assist

Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Thermostat E are part of the Works With Nest program, which is one of the fastest growing Home automation families. The family includes all Nest Cam and Nest Cam IQ models, Scout, Mercedes, Whirlpool, Chamberlain, Hue, August, and several other Home automation players. Through the Works With Nest program, Learning Thermostat is made even more intelligent. Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, and Nest Cam are key players in the Works With Nest program. When you connect Nest Cam or Nest Protect to your Thermostat, it becomes even more intelligent. Other devices will help your thermostat know whether or not someone is home, will make temperature adjustments more intelligent, and can all be controlled from a single app. To make things even more convenient, there is an Apple Watch app for Nest products which can deliver notifications to your wrist. It also allows you to adjust temperature or switch between Home or Eco Temperature Mode from your Watch. Nest also works with Amazon Echo and Google Home for Voice Control as well as IFTTT. Honeywell Lyric is the first Smart Thermostat brand to work with all three major AI assistants: Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. It also works with smart If youre Amazon Echo user, Lyric has two other Wi - Fi Thermostats that also work with Alexa. T5 is $149. 99 Wi - Fi Thermostat With Geofencing and scheduling Features. T6 Pro is a professionally - installed Thermostat available only from Honeywell dealers. Both Thermostats have a more traditional look and fewer Smart features when compared to Lyric Round. Finally, Lyric has its own IFTTT channel that is compatible with Lyric Round, Lyric Wi - Fi T5, and Lyric Wi - Fi T6 as well as Lyric Water Leak & Freeze detector. Ecobee3, Ecobee3 Lite, Ecobee4, and Smart Sensors all work with HomeKit as well, which means you can control them using Siri, iPods, iPhones, or iPads. You can also use Ecobees Remote Sensors, which are motion Sensors that work with your HomeKit system. They can tell your other HomeKit devices where you are in your house and whether there is activity or not. There is also an Apple Watch app that allows you to see your Remote Sensors ' Temperature Reading, set temperature, and switch between Home and Away. Ecobee Thermostats serve three purposes for the HomeKit system: they serve as HVAC controller. It serves as an occupancy Sensor for the whole house. It serves as a motion Sensor for room where it is instal. Smart Sensors also function as motion Sensors for HomeKit, allowing you to set rules that trigger lights and other devices. Besides HomeKit, Ecobee can also connect with SmartThings and Wink systems. And finally, thermostats work with Stringify, IFTTT, and Alexa. Ifttt allows you to integrate Ecobee with some devices and services that it cant interact with otherwise. For example, if your Netatmo Weather Station detects extreme temperatures, it can prompt Ecobee to heat your home to avoid freezing pipes, even if it is set to Away Mode.


Selecting your Smart Thermostat

Besides the smart side of Thermostat, there is also a really important non - Smart but technical side, OpenTherm. This is a standard communication protocol used in central heating systems to communicate with thermostat. Now almost every manufacturer supports OpenTherm, allowing you to use any thermostat on any central heating system. But some manufactures have made some changes in protocol, They added features that are supported by OpenTherm, which results in non - working thermostat. I have a Nefit heating system and it does not fully support OpenTerm, so my choices for Smart Thermostats were limited. But luckily Tado was able to write a specific connector for Nefit, so everything is working fine here. But if you have decided which Smart Thermostat you want to buy, make sure you check if it works with your heating system.
