Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or drink more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It unites you with the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it controls 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 choose, using – you guessed it – 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 awhile, 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 potential to activate geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating unit to heat your 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 modify your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you step inside.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you money. As 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 understands 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 turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return 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 hold off 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.
