Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to move around more or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the other people in 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 adapts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control 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 family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system to warm your 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 perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
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 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 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 the ideal temperature? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
