How to use geofencing with your Boulder smart home
When using geofencing with your home’s security, you’ll have access to a wide range of options. Before installing your system, find out exactly what you can set up. There is a an undeniable security boost as you can have your system automatically lock your main entrance, arm your system, and even bring down your garage door while you exit. On the other hand, when you return for the day, you can take advantage of geofencing to open your garage, unlock your front door, or turn on lights.
You’ll be happy to have extra convenience and the greater potential for energy savings along with elevated security. Just consider being able to change your home’s temperature automatically in response to your whereabouts. There’s no point in operating your A/C or furnace at full throttle when you’re at work or on vacation. Alternatively, you can have it promptly adjust when you leave and then switch back to your preferred settings as you return.
There are various devices you might program through geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Door locks
- Smart plugs and lights
- Garage doors
- Motion sensors
Want an alternative to geofencing? Set schedules and automations
Besides geofencing, some security systems let you configure automations and schedules. To illustrate, you may order your main entryways to secure or exterior lights to engage at particular moments every night. You may even have multiple actions happen instantaneously when you’re going to bed. Or you can program custom “If This, Then That” rules such as deactivating front door locks whenever a fire alarm is triggered.
