How to integrate geofencing with your Evansville smart home
When integrating geofencing with home security, you’ll have access to a wide range of options. Before installing your system, determining exactly what you can program through your cell phone app is a smart move. There is a definite security benefit as you can have your system automatically lock your doors, activate your alarm, and even close your garage door when you depart. Conversely, when you return for the day, you can utilize geofencing to open your garage, unlock your main entrance, or illuminate lights.
You’ll enjoy additional convenience and potential utility savings along with improved security. Just think about being able to adjust your home’s comfort settings automatically based on your location. There’s no sense in using your A/C or furnace at max effort when you’re not in the house. As an alternative, you can program it to promptly update when you exit and then switch back to your normal settings when you return.
There are various components you might program via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Smart locks
- Smart lighting and plugs
- Garage doors
- Video cameras
- Motion detectors
Seeking a geofencing alternative? Program automations and schedules
Besides geofencing, some home security systems allow you to program scheduling and automations. For example, you might order your main entryways to lock or outside lights to activate at particular times each day. You might even have multiple actions occur at the same time when you’re ready for bed. Or you can program customized “If This, Then That” rules such as disengaging your locks whenever a smoke detector is tripped.
