Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or guzzle more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the outside 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 morning Starbucks.
 
And now it controls 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, 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 A/C system 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 get home.
 
It also notifies 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 cash. Since 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 knows that during the winter 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 raising the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
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 furnace back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
