MINNEAPOLIS,Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON), a leader in managing home comfort and security for more than 125 years, has joined together with SmartThings to give homeowners an easier way to feel comfortable and in control of their homes. Consumers who own a Honeywell Lyric™ thermostat (first and second generation), can now instantly adjust their home's temperature through the new Samsung SmartThings Hub and SmartThings mobile app (available for iOS, Windows, and Android).
