Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to be more active or guzzle more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, 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 adapts 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.
 
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 thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating unit 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 time and stress, they save you cash. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows 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 are 60 minutes from home, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
