Honeywell Lyric Smart Thermostat

The Honeywell Lyric Smart Thermostat can talk with Siri through HomeKit or with Alexa via the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Tap speakers.

It also has geofencing capabilities tied to your phone's location. When you leave home, the Lyric should automatically adjust to a more energy-efficient temperature. And when you return, it should autoadjust back to a more comfortable setting.
