Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or guzzle more agua. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It unites you with the rest of the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – you know it – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating unit to heat the home or your air conditioning 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 get home.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the winter you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
