Ring thermostat doesn’t just manage the refrigeration and heating systems at home. You can remotely adjust your thermostat anywhere your mobile phone or mobile device is connected to Wi Fi or cellular network. Ring thermostat is a smart home device that supports applications, so you can keep control whether you are on vacation, in the grocery store or on the sofa. Many ring thermostat models can also be voice controlled via Alexa, Siri, or Google assistant.
Some ring thermostat also use intelligent features, such as motion sensors or occupancy sensors, to determine whether you are at home or out and automatically change the temperature (heating and cooling) for you without fiddling with the HVAC system. Others have the function of geographic fence: once you leave home for a certain distance, ring thermostat will automatically switch to leave mode, and then return to home mode when you come back.
There are also features such as remote sensors, power extender kits, thermostats that work with existing infrastructure (in other words, compatible with apple homekit), and, of course, thermostats that measure energy use to make your home more energy-efficient.
Indeed, ring thermostat is an energy-saving smart device, which is good for the environment and wallet.
For example, suppose you want to cool the thermostat in your bedroom when you get home from work. To do this, you must set the triggers and actions for ring thermostat. The ring thermostat trigger is used to ring the doorbell or detect movement (this option is not always ideal because you don’t want your bedroom temperature to drop every time someone comes in).
The operation of ring thermostat is to set the thermostat to a preset temperature. After setting up the ring thermostat, you can test it by activating the trigger. If everything is set correctly, the action part of the ring thermostat will be activated to cool your room.

Honeywell T5 Smart Thermostat
- Flexible scheduling.
- Geofencing feature with multi-user support.
- Alexa and Apple home kit support
- Simple setup
- Requires C-wire
No energy usage reports.
- Basic design.
- No motion or humidity sensors
This ring thermostat requires a C-wire from the HVAC system, but the detailed instructions are easy to install and set up. This ring thermostat is compatible with a variety of hardware, including single-stage and multi-stage heating and cooling systems, heat pumps with or without auxiliary heat sources, geothermal and hot water heating, and 24 volt gas fireplaces. However, unlike Lyric circles, this ring thermostat does not support humidifiers, dehumidifiers, or ventilators. This ring thermostat is also more dependent on the lyric mobile app; Paradoxically, the T5’s larger touch screen makes it easier to control from the thermostat itself.
Since this ring thermostat is Honeywell’s official “budget” thermostat, its working principle is slightly different from round, which directly competes with nest. After telling T5 your preferred temperature range, this ring thermostat basically works in one of two ways. You can use it as a traditional thermostat to schedule your temperature needs through the application. This includes options for setting daily heating / cooling schedules, weekday / weekend schedules, or full week schedules. There are only four time periods every day, namely getting up, going home, going out and going to bed, while this ring thermostat has only six time periods.

Although this ring thermostat is a “smart thermostat”, do not confuse it with a “learning” thermostat, such as the nest learning thermostat. This ring thermostat thermostat can learn your habits and automatically adjust your settings according to your mode. This ring thermostat is less complicated in studying your heating and cooling habits and then automatically adjusting them according to your daily living habits. You can still decide when and where you need cooling and heating. This ring thermostat is a plus sign for many people. The intelligent function of this ring thermostat is to simplify and automate the control of heating and cooling systems.

In general, this ring thermostat is a prominent choice when choosing a modern intelligent thermostat, especially when design is a major consideration. With its modern appearance and advanced functions, this ring thermostat is very suitable for technologically advanced buildings.
You can set, change and program your home comfort from your mobile device anytime, anywhere. Although this ring thermostat is a little more expensive than other standard thermostats, this ring thermostat is designed to be an intelligent energy-saving device for any HVAC system.
Lennox E30 Smart Thermostat
- Big screen with all relevant information.
- Easy Installation.
- Helpful smartphone app.
- Currently faces some backward compatibility issues.
Although there are many smart Wi Fi thermostats on the market with the same functions as E30, such as Wi Fi access, geofencing (the thermostat communicates with the smartphone to detect when you are at home or not) and Alexa compatibility, this ring thermostat has taken things to a new level.
In my opinion, the best feature of this ring thermostat is ™ Mode when you think of terms such as “wind cold coefficient” and “heat index”, you will think of why the “feel like” function makes this thermostat more comfortable than any other thermostat. In the HVAC industry, we refer to the temperature without considering humidity as “dry bulb temperature” and humidity as “wet bulb temperature”. We “feel” humidity and dry bulb temperature. Therefore, compared with the thermostat without this function, this ring thermostat provides the most comfortable home or office. As far as I know, Lennox is the first manufacturer, and I believe it is still the only manufacturer with this function, so you can trust this ring thermostat.

When you look at this, you will realize that this is a completely different level. The transparent 5.9-inch display of this ring thermostat has a futuristic design, which is very attractive. In addition, this ring thermostat’s responsive display makes navigation easier. Overall, the device is very easy to use and user-friendly. This ring thermostat saves power by turning off the lights in a few seconds. Otherwise, if it is turned on for a long time, the OLED screen will consume a lot of energy. However, the inability to keep the device on all the time can be a problem for some people.

- Supports different voice platforms.
- Apple HomeKit support.
- Intelligent usage statistics reporting.
- Geofencing feature present.
- Lacks external room sensors.
- Users report integration issues with other smart devices.
Kono uses the same Android and IOS mobile applications as lux GEO, and can also be controlled through the network console. The home screen of this ring thermostat displays the name of your home and all installed thermostats. This ring thermostat also has a “setting” button. You can put this ring thermostat in “away” mode to help save energy; There is also a “radius” button, which can be used to configure the geofence perimeter, automatically put Kono in “away” mode when you leave, and automatically put Kono in “home” mode when you return. You can click the name of this ring thermostat to enter the main screen, which displays the current room temperature and target temperature. This ring thermostat also shows the outdoor temperature, but lacks the detailed extended weather forecast provided by ecobee 4 and Honeywell Lyric thermostat.
Near the bottom of the screen are the mode, fan and hold buttons (bypass the schedule to maintain the current temperature). There are four more buttons below. This ring thermostat’s schedule allows you to set heating and cooling schedules based on typical weekly activities. For example, you can create a fixed schedule for all days of the week, or a schedule with different temperatures and times for each day or only weekends. The application of this ring thermostat provides a convenient guide to heating preference efficiency. Once you select a preference for this ring thermostat, you can use the slider to set the on and off times of the hot air, depending on who will be at home.
