Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or drink more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the outside world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they keep their boarding passes 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 heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – you know it – your smartphone.
 
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system to heat the 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired 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 you peace of mind and time, they save you dollars. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it understands 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 arrival.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the furnace back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
