Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to move around more or drink more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a live feed of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It connects you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – that’s right – your smartphone.
 
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, and the Lyric also integrates with SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your furnace to warm the home or your A/C system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you step inside.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you dollars. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it understands that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts raising the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
