Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts 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 levels. It joins you to the rest of the world through social media, 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 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the ability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your furnace to warm 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 ideal temperature when you arrive.
 
It even warns 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 money. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s 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 6 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? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
