Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or guzzle more H20. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a picture of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects you to the outside world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads 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 adjusts to your life to control your home comfort system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
Whether you are at home or out for the day (or week!), your smartphone can adjust your Lyric Thermostat, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After awhile, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the potential to use geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heater to warm your 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 ideal temperature when you arrive.
 
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. As the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it knows that during the winter you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat 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 heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
