Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends reminders to be more active or drink more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen stats. It unites you with the other people in the world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it manages your home.
 
The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your home comfort 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.
 
After awhile, 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 capability to enable geofencing so your Lyric can literally see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heater to warm the 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 ideal temperature when you arrive.
 
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 cash. As 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 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’ll be home in an hour, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your arrival.
 
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No worries! The Lyric understands that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
