Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or consume more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the rest of the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your home comfort 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.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating unit 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the ideal temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts 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 HVAC system’s behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature 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 furnace 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
