How to use geofencing with your Fort Smith home security
You’ll find a wealth of possibilities when utilizing geofencing with your home’s security. Before installing your system, find out exactly what you can set up. There is a definite security boost as you can have your system automatically secure your front door, activate your alarm, and even bring down your garage door as you depart. On the contrary, when you come home, you can take advantage of geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your main entrance, or turn on lights.
You’ll enjoy extra convenience and the greater potential for utility savings along with elevated security. Just consider being able to change your home’s comfort levels automatically in response to your location. There’s no reason to operate your HVAC system at full blast when you’re at work or on vacation. Alternatively, you can set it to promptly update when you exit and then resume your ideal settings as you return.
There are various devices you can operate via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Locking systems
- Smart lights and plugs
- Garage doors
- Video cameras
- Motion sensors
Looking for a geofencing alternative? Program automations and schedules
In addition to geofencing, modern home security systems let you program automations and schedules. For example, you can order your entrances to lock or outdoor lighting to activate at designated moments each and every evening. You could even have several actions occur at once when you’re turning in for the night. Or you may configure specific “If This, Then That” rules such as deactivating front door locks whenever a smoke detector is tripped.
