Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their much needed 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.
 
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 home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the ideal temperature when you step inside.
 
It even warns 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. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it understands that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts pushing the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 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 start turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
