Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or guzzle more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It joins you to the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – that’s right – 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.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to heat your home or your A/C system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically start adjusting 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 switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you cash. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it realizes that during the heating season 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 turning 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? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
