Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to be more active or consume more water. It replaced baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It unites you with the rest of the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, 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 HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the ability to activate geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your furnace 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you step inside.
 
It even alerts 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 cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it understands that during the cold months 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 are 60 minutes from home, it starts raising the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
