Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to get up and walk or guzzle more agua. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the rest of the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, 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 runs 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, if you choose, using – you guessed it – 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 household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your furnace to warm your 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you step inside.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
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 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 adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’re about an hour away 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? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
