How to use geofencing with your St. Louis smart home
When integrating geofencing with your home’s security, you’ll discover a wide range of possibilities. Before hooking up your system, determining exactly what you are able to set up through your cell phone app is a good idea. There is a an undeniable security bonus as you can order your system to automatically lock your doors, activate your alarm, and even shut your garage door as you depart. On the other hand, when you return for the day, you can use geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your main entrance, or switch on lights.
You’ll enjoy extra convenience and the opportunity for energy savings along with elevated security. Just consider having the ability to change your home’s comfort levels automatically in response to where you are. There’s no reason to operate your furnace or A/C at full blast when you’re away. Alternatively, you can program it to promptly adjust when you leave and then resume your preferred settings as you return.
There are various devices you might operate via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Locking systems
- Smart lights and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance systems
- Motion sensors
Want an alternative to geofencing? Set schedules and automations
Besides geofencing, modern security systems permit you to program schedules and automations. For instance, you can program your entrances to secure or outside lighting to turn on at designated moments every day. You could even have several actions take place at the same time when you’re ready for bed. Or you might configure specific “If This, Then That” rules such as disengaging your locks whenever a fire alarm is tripped.
