How to use geofencing with your Topeka security system
You’ll discover numerous possibilities when operating geofencing with your home security. Before installing your system, determining exactly what you can configure through your mobile device is a good idea. There is a an undeniable security benefit as you can have your system automatically secure your doors, engage your alarm, and even close your garage door while you leave. On the contrary, when you return home, you can use geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your main entrance, or illuminate lights.
You’ll be happy to have additional convenience and the greater potential for utility savings along with improved security. Just consider being able to alter your home’s comfort settings instantly based on your location. There’s no point in operating your HVAC system at full blast when you’re not in the house. Instead, you can program it to automatically update when you depart and then switch back to your preferred settings as you return.
There are various devices you can program with geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Smart locks
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance cameras
- Motion detectors
Seeking an alternative to geofencing? Set automations and schedules
Along with geofencing, many home security systems let you set up schedules and automations. For example, you might program your doors to lock or exterior lighting to turn on at specific times every night. You may even have multiple actions occur at the same time when you’re ready for bed. Or you can set custom “If This, Then That” rules such as unlocking your front doors whenever a safety alarm is tripped.
