Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or drink more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It joins you to the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they keep their boarding passes 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 Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heater to warm the home or your air conditioner 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 get home.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you money. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the winter you’re going to be gone from 8 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 ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by 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.
