Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or guzzle more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, 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 Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to heat 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 desired temperature when you get home.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it understands that during the heating season 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 are 60 minutes from home, it starts raising the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
