Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to move around more or drink more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects you to the rest of the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their daily 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, if you want, 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.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the capability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to warm 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 start adjusting 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 switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, 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 winter you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, 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? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
