Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends prompts to move around more or consume more agua. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a picture of your sleeping darling, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It joins 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 keep their boarding passes for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
 
And now it controls 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 – you guessed it – your smartphone.
 
You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings.
 
After a bit of time, the Lyric will learn your household’s behaviors – when you turn the thermostat up, when you turn it down, when you are home, and when you leave. It has the capability to use geofencing so your Lyric can actually see where you are and, once it calculates how long it takes your heating system to heat 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 desired temperature when you arrive.
 
It also notifies you when the air filter needs to be changed!
 
All of these features don’t just save you time and stress, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it knows that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically lower your home’s temperature and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts raising the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
 
Does it only take your heating system 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? No worries! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
