Also, Honeywell included 2 batteries in the package, therefore, you do not have to go out and buy the initial set of batteries for it. The app keeps tabs on the strength of the batteries, so you will know when to change them when the time comes. Moreover, the app has the ability to invite other people, that has the app installed, to get alerts and notification for any Lyric you have installed in the house. There is also a specific invite for Homekit users as well, although I did not test this feature Even though the device is not Homekit enabled, you need to create a house, in the app, and after that, you add multiple Lyrics to that house. It's very similar to the Homekit naming scheme. Unlike Homekit though, I saw no way to create multiple homes in the app. So, if you have a rental, summer house, etc., I'm not sure Honeywell expects the app to work in this situation. I suspect the reason the Lyric is not Homekit enabled is because Homekit has a requirement that the device must always be reachable. Since the Lyric sleeps a lot, in order to conserve batteries, this violates this particular Homekit requirement as the device is not always reachable when it is asleep. It would have been great if the Lyric had the option to use an AC adapter as additional power source for users that want/need and always on device.
Next, I tested the water leak feature by attaching the cable sensor to the Lyric and placing one end of the chord in a sink filled with water. Between 20s and 1 minute, I received and an email and push notification that a water leak was detected. Also, the alarm went off during the same time period as well. When the alarm goes off, the user interface comes up and allows you to mute the alarm. However, the alarm does not mute immediately. For some reason, it can take up to 2 minutes to mute the alarm. Next, I took a towel and sufficiently dried the parts of the cable sensor until I thought it was dry. To my surprise, I received another alert, and a email telling me that the water leak was resolved!. That was unexpected and a very nice touch.
The app allows the user to set the interval of how often temperature and humidity information is sent to your mobile device. The max, is up to 3 times daily. Sadly, there is no option to get an on demand reading at any time, or to schedule an out of band reading. Once the device is set to go to sleep, other than a water leak, nothing else appears to wake it up. So, you might have to wait a long time (48 hours) before you know the temperature has dropped and get a freeze notification. It would have be great to have a wake-on-Lan feature to send a control packet to the device to wake it up and get some sort of on-demand reading.
There is no IFTTT or Amazon Echo integration that I can detect. But nevertheless, I think the device and app works great so far. Some sort of IFTT integration would really complete the app.
I was away from my home for about 4 weeks. I completely forgot I installed this device under my sink. One day, while I was away, I received an alert that the humidity was high and the temperature was low from this device. I contacted my neighbor to go and check the device under the sink. When he walked into my house, he found the temperature in the house very cold. It turns out my furnace stopped working and that's why the temperature and humidity alert went off. He called the furnace repair company and they fixed the problem with the furnace. So this device has really worked out for me already.
This device is still working great. The battery is currently at 80% from since I initially wrote this review. In addition, it also alerted me to a high humidity issue that would have turned into major issue if this device was not installed.
Honeywell just updated their Alexa still to include this leak detector. You can ask Alexa what is the temperature at the location the leak detector is located at (ex. Kitchen Sink). But asking it about humidity is not supported.
