Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to move around more or consume more H20. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, 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 people get their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, of course, 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.
 
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 enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts 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. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it knows that during the cold months 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts turning the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands 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.
