Frequently asked question
I use an EZ outlet that can reboot my router from any location. It will also do it automatically if router is off line. This will reconnect all wifi units within the home.
If the source of the alarm is a water on the cable, you can also disconnect the cable from the unit and the alarm will stop in about a minute. Dry off the cable and re-attach.

Don't order from Ebay warehouse
ordered (2nd time) ‘sold by’ Amazon.com and it arrived as promised, unlike seller ‘ebay warehouse’ that promised 2-day shipping and later provided an expected arrival date 15 days after the order date. I cancelled the order with ebay warehouse and reordered using amazon as the seller. Product was easy to setup and install, giving temperature and humidity readings through the application.10/05/2022Verified Purchase
Broken firmware, useless support.
I have several of these. But trying to install this one… wow. Random failures, can’t detect it, tech support useless, ‘did you try resetting it?’ Umm yes, 6 or 7 times…
Eventually one of the reset/fornicate with the app/reset again cycles worked and it installed and works fine. Probably around the 15th or 20th attempt.08/31/2022Verified Purchase
Got this a year and a half ago after discharge pump failed in unfinished basement, and today it saved a lot items from getting ruined. We have tested this a few times over the last 18months just to make sure it still worked. My husband got a notification immediately and went to basement to find hot water heater leaking. This would have gone unnoticed for a long time because of location without this little gem. I will definitely be buying more and my neighbor is now convinced.07/02/2022Verified Purchase
Next Time, I'll Know...
The contractor says that the leak in the wall started at least 2 years ago, judging by the condition of the drywall and the amount of mold in the closet that the bathroom backs up to! We haven’t been in that closet in ages, it’s full of boxes that we never look at, or at least it was. Black mold 2 inches thick or more is all that’s left of the bottoms of the lowest boxes. The tile in the bathroom was strong enough that we never knew there was a leak until the day that it got worse and I could hear it behind the wall. That was the day the carpet in the bedroom got wet. That was 5 weeks ago, the mold is now gone, the bathroom is now nearly repaired, and I’m out $9,000! All because of a leak that might have cost $500 to fix if I had caught it 2 years ago… That $9,000 includes two devices. A $200 whole house water monitor, and a $50 leak detector. Because if this ever happens again, I don’t want to wait 2 years to find out! It also includes extra tile in case it happens again and I do catch it early!
The water meter on the whole house is nice, but it won’t tell me where the leak is, and it won’t tell me the minute it happens (it’ll alert me after 2 hours, and then I’ll think it’s a fluke and silence the alarm, and then at 4 hours it’ll go off again and I’ll start looking around but see nothing if it’s in the wall). So I’m drilling a small hole in the wall of the closet that connects to the bathroom, and pushing this cable in so that it lies on the ground under the pipes that might one day leak. If this goes off, I will immediately pull down the drywall and look. A false alarm will cost an hour putting the drywall back up, but that’s a small price to pay if a real alarm will save me $9,000!!!
After receiving the first one, setting it up, testing it, and deciding it’s worthwhile, I will now be buying these for the kitchen, the other bathroom, and the laundry room. Better safe than sorry!!! I’ll spread the purchases out, maybe one a month so I don’t have to pay another $150 right now. If you’re wondering whether $50 is worth it, the answer is an emphatic YES!!!
BTW, the whole house meter I installed is the Fluke water monitor. I also highly recommend that $200 investment!!04/27/2022Verified Purchase
Very well designed water leak and freeze detection device
, and I had no issues connecting to this router at all. I suspect the Lyric only connects to the 2.4 GHZ signal because that signal has a longer range than the 5GHZ signal and could go through walls much easier as well. Technically, there is no reason why Honeywell could not have added an additionally 5GhZ radio. I think they were just being careful and wanted to maximize the signal range of this device, since it may be placed in very far away, and inconveniently located, places. Nevertheless, the device paired, connected to my router, and connected to the Honeywell servers without incident.
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.04/24/2022Verified Purchase
