Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to get up and walk or guzzle more water. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their daily Starbucks.
 
And now it controls your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your home’s behaviors – when you turn the temperature up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the potential to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system to heat 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 adjust your heating and cooling systems so that it is the perfect temperature when you arrive.
 
It even alerts you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it understands 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’re about an hour away from home, it starts pushing 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? Fear not! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the furnace back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
