Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to be more active or drink more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It unites you with the outside world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, 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 enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system to warm 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 start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you cash. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it understands that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 6 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 raising 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 learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heater back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
