Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or guzzle more H20. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, 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 people get 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 heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature 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 literally 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 money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. 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 turning 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 perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
