Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or guzzle more water. It made baby monitors obsolete and shows you a live feed of your sleeping dumpling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen measurements. It connects you to the other people in the world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, 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 daily Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat optimizes to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you want, using – that’s right – 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.
 
In time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the air 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 really see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater 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 ideal temperature when you get home.
 
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 money. Because 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 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
