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 a picture 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 controls 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, 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 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 there, and when you leave. It has the ability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows 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 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 peace of mind and time, they save you money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
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 heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
