Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to move around more or consume more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. 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 check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it runs your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the ability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to heat 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 start adjusting 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 switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you money. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it realizes that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you’re about an hour away from home, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
