Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to be more active or guzzle more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, 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 much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it controls 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 choose, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control 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 ability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you get home.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you money. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it understands that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 8 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 HVAC unit 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 start turning the furnace back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
