How to use geofencing with your Ocala home security
You’ll find a range of possibilities when utilizing geofencing with your smart home. Before implementing your system, find out specifically what you are able to configure. There is a definite security bonus as you can order your system to automatically lock your doors, arm your system, and even shut your garage door while you depart. On the other hand, when you return home, you can use geofencing to open your garage, unlock your front door, or turn on lights.
You’ll enjoy extra convenience and the greater potential for energy savings along with enhanced security. Just consider having the ability to alter your home’s comfort settings automatically in response to your location. There’s no reason to run your HVAC system at full blast when you’re away. Instead, you can set it to instantly update when you exit and then resume your preferred settings upon your return.
There are quite a few implements you can operate via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Locking systems
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance cameras
- Motion detectors
Want a geofencing alternative? Set schedules and automations
In addition to geofencing, some home security systems allow you to configure automated tasks and schedules. For example, you might order your main entryways to secure or outside lights to engage at particular moments every evening. You may even have several actions happen at the same time when you’re turning in for the night. Or you might configure specific “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a safety alarm is triggered.
