    Your smartphone is your homebase. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or consume 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 connects you to the outside world through SnapChat, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everyone gets their news, where they check the status of their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks.
     
    And now it controls your home.
     
    The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adjusts to your life to control your home comfort 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 Apple HomeKit, Apple Watch, and Samsung SmartThings.
     
    In time, the Lyric will learn your family’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 activate geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it calculates 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 arrive.
     
    It even warns 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. Since 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 understands 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 home’s temperature and then, when it sees you are 60 minutes from home, it starts pushing the temperature back up so you can walk into a warm home.
     
    Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to the ideal temperature? Fear not! The Lyric learns that, as well, and will stand by until 5:25 p.m. to initiate turning the heater back on but it delivers the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
