Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or consume more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It unites you with the other people in the world through social media, 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it controls 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 guessed 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 awhile, the Lyric will learn your family’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 use geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating unit to warm your 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 perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts 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 cash. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 8 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 furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
