Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the rest of the world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it runs 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 Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the capability to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to heat 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 also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
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 you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it understands that during the winter 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
