How to integrate geofencing with your Charlottesville security system
When using geofencing with your smart home, you’ll discover a wealth of options. Before implementing your system, determining exactly what you are able to set up through your cell phone app is a good idea. There is a definite security benefit as you can program your system to automatically lock your doors, arm your system, and even shut your garage door while you leave. Conversely, when you come home, you can use geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your front door, or illuminate lights.
You’ll appreciate additional convenience and the greater potential for energy savings along with improved security. Just think about being able to alter your home’s comfort levels automatically based on where you are. There’s no reason to operate your A/C or furnace at full throttle when you’re not home. As an alternative, you can program it to instantly change temperatures when you depart and then resume your preferred settings when you return.
There are various devices you can program through geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Smart locks
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Motion sensors
Looking for an alternative to geofencing? Program automations and schedules
Besides geofencing, some security systems let you set up automations and schedules. For example, you may set your entrances to secure or exterior lighting to activate at specific moments each and every day. You might even have multiple actions take place at the same time when you’re heading to bed. Or you can program specific “If This, Then That” rules like disengaging your locks whenever a fire alarm is triggered.
