Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or drink more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, 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, if you want, using – you know it – your smartphone.
 
You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
After a bit of time, 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 ability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to warm your 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 ideal 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 you time and stress, they save you dollars. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it understands that during the cold months 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 turning 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 learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
