Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to get up and walk or drink more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, 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 Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, 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 capability 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 air conditioner to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you step inside.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it regulates 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 themostat and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
