How to integrate geofencing with your Columbia smart home
You’ll find numerous possibilities when operating geofencing with your home’s security. Before installing your system, find out specifically what you can set up. There is a an undeniable security bonus as you can order your system to automatically secure your main entrance, arm your system, and even bring down your garage door as you leave. On the contrary, when you return home, you can use geofencing to raise your garage door, unlock your main entrance, or illuminate lights.
You’ll enjoy added convenience and the opportunity for energy savings along with improved security. Imagine being able to adjust your home’s temperature instantly in response to your location. There’s no sense in running your HVAC system at full blast when you’re not in the house. Instead, you can set it to automatically adjust when you depart and then resume your normal settings when you return.
There are numerous implements you can control with geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Entry locks
- Smart lights and plugs
- Garage doors
- Video cameras
- Motion detectors
Looking for a geofencing alternative? Set schedules and automations
Besides geofencing, many home security systems let you set up automations and schedules. To illustrate, you can set your main entryways to lock or outdoor lights to activate at specific times every day. You may even have several actions occur at the same time when you’re heading to bed. Or you can set specific “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a smoke detector is triggered.
