Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or consume more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the other people in the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it runs your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – that’s right – your smartphone.
 
Your smartphone can control your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the capability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating unit to warm your 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 desired temperature when you get home.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it realizes that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 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 pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
