Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or consume more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It unites you with the other people in the world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it runs your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the capability 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 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 ideal temperature when you step inside.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it realizes that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your heating system 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 heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
