Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or guzzle more H20. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, 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 everybody reads 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 adjusts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – you know it – your smartphone.
 
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, 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 home, and when you leave. It has the capability to use geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your furnace to heat the home or your A/C system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you step inside.
 
It even warns 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 dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it realizes that during the cold months 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 pushing 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? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
