Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or drink more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It connects you to 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-in for their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, using – that’s right – 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature 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 literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your furnace to heat the home or your air conditioner 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 desired temperature when you step inside.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
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 regulates 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 adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
