Not intimidated by Nest, clearly
The Lyric sounds very user-friendly and it's nice to see some Nest competition. But $280? Perhaps Honeywell thinks its rich legacy with traditional thermostats earns it the right to price a smart thermostat higher than Nest. But they may be underestimating the power of branding, cool, and Google. But I like that they're being aggressive about it.

Re: Not intimidated by Nest, clearly
If the Lyric routed data to a nearby smartphone rather than to the cloud, it would be worth paying extra to have.

Re: Not intimidated by Nest, clearly
@Thomas once it does go to the cloud, shouldn't it be possible to direct it from there to the mobile device?
