Your smartphone is command central. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or drink more agua. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It connects 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages 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 know 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.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are there, and when you leave. It has the capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heating system 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 start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the desired temperature when you get home.
 
It also notifies 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. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your home comfort behaviors, it adjusts 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 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your themostat 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 HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No problem! The Lyric understands 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.
