Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or consume more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the other people in the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check the status of 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, of course, using – that’s right – 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.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the ability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to warm 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 perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It even warns 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 cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it realizes 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 raising the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
