Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to be more active or drink more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It connects you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, 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 morning Starbucks.
 
And now it runs 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 choose, using – you guessed 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 a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the capability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you get home.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you money. 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 knows that during the winter 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 are 60 minutes from home, 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 a comfortable temperature? No problem! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
