Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or consume more agua. It replaced baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It unites you with the other people in the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their much needed Starbucks.
 
And now it manages 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, of course, using – you know 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 SamSung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and Apple Watch.
 
But over time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the potential to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to heat the home or your A/C system 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 perfect temperature when you step inside.
 
It even warns you when the air filter needs to be swapped out!
 
All of these features don’t just save precious time and peace of mind, they save you cash. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your heating and cooling behaviors, it regulates your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it realizes that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 7 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 turning the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? Fear not! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
