Few families have lifestyles that really sync with the limited schedules their programmable thermostats can provide, so Honeywell has introduced the Lyric thermostat. The unit uses geofencing technology to connecting with family members’ smartphones. When all connected smartphones leave the sensing area, the thermostat automatically goes into energy-saving mode. Lyric turns back to heating or cooling mode when a smartphone re-enters the geofence. Additionally, Lyric’s Fine Tune feature factors in both indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, and weather, which can be viewed from the thermostat’s interface. In addition to smartphone connectivity, users can manage temperature settings using Lyric’s traditionally round dial control. A built-in proximity sensor signals the display to turn on and show current temperatures and heating or cooling status when a user walks up to the unit. Pricing starts at $249. lyric.honeywell.com
