The installation is fairly straightforward if you're familiar with HVAC systems and know the particulars of your own heat and A/C setup.

When in doubt, ask a professional installer (or a knowledgeable friend) for help.

And keep in mind that you'll need to connect a C, or "common" wire for HomeKit's Siri voice control integration to work.

You can also press the cloud button on the left of the display for an at-a-glance local weather update.

And, you'll reach the settings section if you hold the cloud button down for 5 seconds.

Look to the related Lyric Android and iOS app for advanced features and options.
