Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or consume more H20. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. 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 keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – that’s right – 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system to heat the home or your A/C 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 desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it knows 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
