Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or drink 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 joins you to the rest of the world through social media, 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 manages 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, 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature 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 actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your furnace 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, 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 realizes that during the heating season you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature 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 the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
