Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to be more active or guzzle more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you an image of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It joins you to the rest of the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes 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.
 
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.
 
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 there, 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 A/C system 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 get home.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be switched!
 
All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you money. Since the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it adjusts your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy costs. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, 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? 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 delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
