Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to be more active or guzzle more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the other people in 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 manages 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, if you choose, using – that’s right – 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 awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the potential to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heating unit to warm 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the ideal temperature when you step inside.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you money. Because 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 knows that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, 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 understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
