How to use geofencing with your Killeen home security
When integrating geofencing with your home’s security, you’ll find a wide range of options. Before hooking up your system, determining specifically what you can configure through your mobile device is a smart approach. There is a definite security bonus as you can order your system to automatically secure your front door, activate your alarm, and even bring down your garage door while you exit. On the other hand, when you return for the day, you can utilize geofencing to open your garage, unlock your main entry, or switch on lights.
You’ll enjoy additional convenience and the greater potential for utility savings along with improved security. Imagine being able to adjust your home’s temperature instantly based on your whereabouts. There’s no reason to run your HVAC system at full blast when you’re not in the house. Instead, you can set it to instantly update when you exit and then switch back to your normal settings as you return.
There are quite a few components you might operate through geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Door locks
- Smart lights and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance cameras
- Motion sensors
Seeking a geofencing alternative? Set schedules and automations
In addition to geofencing, some home security systems permit you to set up scheduling and automations. For instance, you might set your doors to secure or outdoor lighting to activate at specific times each evening. You may even have several actions happen at the same time when you’re ready for bed. Or you can configure custom “If This, Then That” rules such as disengaging your locks whenever a safety alarm goes off.
