Let Your Smart Home ‚ÄòFall Back' into its Routine as Daylight Saving Time Ends
November 04, 2016
Each winter, our days get a little shorter, our families get a little more sluggish, and the temperatures outside continue to drop. With Daylight Saving Time (DST) ending on Sunday morning, Americans will have to turn back the clocks in their homes, and make sure their families adjust to the new time when they wake up on Sunday morning.
And while that change shouldn’t come as a surprise to most of the country, Honeywell is trying to make the adjustment a bit easier and smarter.
The Lyric platform of connected home products – from the new Lyric T5 Wi-Fi Thermostat and Lyric Water Leak & Freeze Detector to the Lyric Security and Home Control System – allows homeowners to take advantage of smart home tech to make adjusting to the time change and prepping for those cool winter months easier than ever. Designed with homeowners in mind, Lyric devices and the Lyric app seamlessly change the clock as DST ends, and can be programmed to account for the lower temperatures caused by the changing season.
Want warmer mornings, customizable settings or “scenes” just for your home, and a seasonal reminder to check the health of your at-home systems? The Lyric platform can do it all.
- Warm Up Your Wake-Ups. No one likes to get out of bed in a cold room! Make sure the thermostat is set to turn on at the right time to get your home ready for earlier, darker and colder wake ups.
- Your Home. Your Way. Create scenes and shortcuts in the Lyric app to customize the performance of the thermostat to your specific lifestyle, family, and routine. If you’re going to bed as early as the winter sun, then your thermostat – and home – should reflect that.
- Changing of the Seasons. Like changing out wardrobes for cooler temperatures, make sure to prepare the home’s heating system for increased activity by changing whole-house air filters or humidifiers if needed.
With Honeywell’s Lyric products, the onset of winter can be managed easily without sacrificing time, energy or comfort.
