How to integrate geofencing with your Scottsdale smart home
You’ll discover a wealth of possibilities when using geofencing with your home security. Before implementing your system, find out exactly what you are able to program. There is a definite security benefit as you can order your system to automatically secure your main entrance, engage your alarm, and even bring down your garage door when you leave. On the other hand, when you come home, you can use geofencing to open your garage, unlock your main entry, or switch on lights.
You’ll be happy to have extra convenience and potential utility savings along with enhanced security. Just consider having the ability to adjust your home’s comfort levels automatically based on where you are. There’s no need to run your HVAC system at full throttle when you’re at work or on vacation. Instead, you can have it promptly update when you depart and then switch back to your normal settings when you return.
There are quite a few devices you might control via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Locking systems
- Smart lighting and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance cameras
- Motion sensors
Looking for an alternative to geofencing? Program schedules and automations
Besides geofencing, many security systems let you set up schedules and automations. For example, you can program your entrances to lock or outdoor lighting to turn on at specific moments each and every evening. You could even have several actions happen at once when you’re ready for bed. Or you may program custom “If This, Then That” rules like disengaging your locks whenever a safety alarm is tripped.
