Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to get up and walk or drink more H20. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins you to the other people in the world through social media, 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 morning Starbucks.
 
And now it controls 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, of course, using – you know it – 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.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your household’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 heating unit 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 start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you arrive.
 
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 heating and cooling behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts turning the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
