Nest Thermostat: Is the Honeywell Lyric Alarm Compatible?

Nest Thermostat: Is the Honeywell Lyric Alarm Compatible?


Hi [? dealers. ?] Joe
here at Alarm Grid, and today we’re
going to talk about if the Nest Thermostat is
compatible with the Honeywell Lyric alarm system. First, let’s check
out the thermostat. Right here, we have a Nest unit. As you can see,
it’s not plugged in. So it’s just showing the
general setup screen. The front of it is
a nice glass window. The unit itself is a button. You do that to select
your different options, and then to adjust
the temperature, the whole unit turns right
around the back side of it. If we take the back
plate off, you’ll see that this is where all
the wiring connections go. It’s a very
versatile thermostat, and it can replace most existing
thermostats in your home. And right in the middle,
on the back plate, there is a little level, so you
can get it nice and straight when you mount it on the wall. The unit itself literally
just plugs right into this back plate. All you have to do is remove
your existing thermostat, put this up, follow the
instructions to get all the wires in the right holes. And then the Nest is just
going to clip right in, and it’ll work like such. It’s a great thermostat. It has a remote app
that lets you tie it together all of your
different Nest products. Scheduling on this
is really easy to do, Wi-Fi compatible,
and a whole bunch of other great features with it. The downside to this, though,
is that it’s not actually compatible with the
Honeywell Lyric, at least not at this time. We have heard that there
are rumblings that they’re going to make it home kit
compatible in the future, but we don’t have a
timetable on that yet, and there’s actually no
way to even interface it with the system yet. Systems that we do sell
that it is compatible with are alarm systems, and it
learns right into the app and actually integrates
in the program. So you don’t have
to do anything else. You’ll actually see the
thermostat in your app. The GC3 is great to use with it. The Qolsys IQ2 is another
great system to use with it. Really, any system
that’s alarm.com is going to work
with this thermostat. If you do have one
with your Lyric, as it’s such a great
thermostat, if you’re OK with using two apps, it may
be the recommended thing to do. As it is an expensive
thermostat too, and it’s going to be
pricey to replace it, but there’s no way to
interface it with the system, at least not yet. So that’s the Lyric and Nest
thermostat compatibility. Thanks for watching. If you did like the video,
