How to use geofencing with your Charleston smart home
You’ll discover a range of possibilities when using geofencing with your home’s security. Before installing your system, find out exactly what you can program. There is a definite security benefit as you can have your system automatically secure your main entrance, engage your alarm, and even bring down your garage door as you leave. On the contrary, when you come home, you can utilize geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your main entry, or illuminate lights.
You’ll be happy to have additional convenience and potential energy savings along with improved security. Imagine having the ability to change your home’s temperature instantly according to where you are. There’s no need to run your A/C or furnace at max effort when you’re not in the house. As an alternative, you can set it to automatically change temperatures when you depart and then go back to your normal settings as you return.
There are numerous devices you can program through geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Smart locks
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance systems
- Motion detectors
Want an alternative to geofencing? Set schedules and automations
Along with geofencing, many security systems allow you to program schedules and automations. To illustrate, you might program your entrances to secure or outside lighting to activate at designated moments each and every day. You might even have several actions occur instantaneously when you’re ready for bed. Or you may set custom “If This, Then That” rules such as unlocking your front doors whenever a safety alarm goes off.
