supplied & fitted
£215 Ordered on Request
From a well known, mainstream manufacturer, the Lyric T6 and T6R by Honeywell is a brilliant little thermostat. Reliable and easy to use with the backing of a mahusive company behind it. Honeywell have struggled with style in the past, but this little thermostat seems to fit in quite nicely with a lot of homes and is a great alternative smart stat for those looking for just basic integration and ease of use.
It is a heating only controller and comes in two variants allowing easy installation on a wall or desktop stand.
Unlike some of the other Smart Thermostat's, the Honeywell T6(R) comes in two different variants, so instead of purchasing a single unit and then accessories, with the Honeywell unit, you need to purchase the right unit for your home:
On the wall, replacing an existing wired thermostat
If you have an existing wired thermostat and you are happy for the thermostat to go in the same location as your existing unit, then the Honeywell T6 is the unit for you. I will then re-utilise the existing room thermostat cable as the link for between your Thermostat and your existing heating system.
Typical installation duration: 1-2hrs.
On the stand
Where you do not have an existing wired thermostat or the location of your existing thermostat is an unsuitable, then you will be looking to purchase the Honeywell T6R. For this, the room thermostat unit itself will be powered by a 240v plug, so make sure you have a socket available near your desired location. You'll then have a receiver box mounted next to your boiler or in your airing cupboard (Depending on your home's internal wiring) which will then interface with your existing heating system.
Typical installation duration: Around 1hr.

All specifications were correct at time of writing, due to the nature of smart controls, features get added frequently (and unfortunately, sometimes removed), please check with the manufacturer or directly with myself if you specifically require a certain feature. I try to keep these feature lists updated as regularily as I can and if you notice an error, please let me know.
Yes. Compatible with all UK combi boilers.
Normal gas boilers with hot water tank
Yes. Traditional S and Y plan systems are easily converted unless you have a specialist controls pack like the "Honeywell SmartFit" system. Additionally gravity systems can also be controlled.
Oil boilers with or without hot water tank
Yes. see above regarding system design.
Yes, although not specifically stated by the manufacturer, it works fine.
Heat interface units & district systems
Yes. As long as you have independant control of your heating system, then the unit should be compatible.
Technically, it's not officially supported for the UK market, however, like most things in this world it does depend on your system as the unit is compatible with electric boilers and doesn't normally require any special components, but for panel or underfloor mat systems some modifications may be required and you should call me to discuss the type of system you have. Unfortunately, if you have electric storage heaters, there is not a compatible smart stat on the market.
An "always-on" broadband connection will be required with a wifi Internet connection ideally broadcasting on a 2.4/5Ghz channel.
