Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or guzzle more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It joins you to the other people in the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get 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 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.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heating unit to heat the home or your air conditioning system 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 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 optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. 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 lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
