Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or drink more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It joins you to the outside world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check-in for 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, 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 thermostat 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 knows how long it takes your furnace to heat 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 start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It even warns 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 dollars. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it realizes that during the winter 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’ll be home in an hour, 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? Fear not! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
