Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to get up and walk or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It joins you to the rest of 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it runs 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, of course, using – that’s right – 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 awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’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 really see where you are and, once it learns 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 ideal temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the winter 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’ll be home in an hour, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
