Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to move around more or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects you to the rest of the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, 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.
 
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the potential to activate geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to warm the home or your air conditioning 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 desired temperature when you arrive.
 
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 money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes 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 lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts turning 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? Fear not! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
