The Lyric thermostat is designed to ensure that your home reaches your preferred temperatures when you have scheduled it to. This feature, called Smart Response or Adaptive Recovery, enables the thermostat to "learn" how long your heating system and air conditioner take to reach the programmed temperature settings. It will then start the system early enough for it to reach that preferred temperature on schedule. To turn off Smart Response for a location, go to the home screen of your Lyric app and tap the icon for the thermostat you'd like to adjust. Press the gear wheel in the upper right-hand corner. Tap "Advanced," then slide the "Adaptive Recovery" toggle to the off position.
