Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or guzzle more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the rest of the world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it runs your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – that’s right – your smartphone.
 
You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat 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 literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heater 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 ideal temperature when you get home.
 
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 dollars. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort 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 6 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 to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No problem! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
