Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or guzzle more H20. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you an image of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen status. It connects you to the outside world through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as calling and texting. It’s where everybody reads 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
optimizes to your life to control your heating and cooling system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – you know it – 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 ability to activate geofencing so your Lyric
can actually see where you are and, once it knows how long it takes your heater to warm 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 desired temperature when you step inside.
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 dollars. Because the Lyric Thermostat
learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save you money on your heating and cooling bills. When it understands that during the winter you’re going to be gone from 6 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 pushing the temperature back up to prepare for your return home.
Does it only take your furnace 35 minutes to get your home to the perfect temperature? No problem! The Lyric
learns that, as well, and will wait until 5:25 p.m. to begin turning the heater back on but it gives you the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
