The Lyric Honeywell Thermostat offers users the ability to access and program their thermostat remotely, or allow the system to activate and learn on its own about your habits and routines. The Lyric senses when you are on your way home, and sets the thermostat accordingly. It is aware of the weather outside and adjusts according to that as well. It also has the ability to alert you on the need for air filter changes and other problems. Visually, it has a sleek puck shaped design that displays the information that matters.

It will be available in August for a price of about $280.
