Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or consume more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It connects you to the rest of the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it runs your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes 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 know 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 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 ability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heater 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 start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you dollars. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 8 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 pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
