Geofencing allows you to control your home’s security, temperature, and lighting all by following your regular, day-to-day routine.
Chances are, when you get home from a long day at work, all you want to do is relax. However, when you walk through the door, there are a few things you must do. For example, you may be trying to save money while away by turning off the lights and up the AC. Now that you are home, turning on a few lights and cooling things off is necessary. Even when you adjust the temperature, it will take a while to reach a comfortable level.
There is a better option. This option lets you walk into your house after you have been gone all day and go right to your favorite spot. You do not have to worry about anything – temperature of the room, lights, or even home security.
Geofencing handles all this for you – and so much more!
Geofencing and a Smart Home Network
If you have a smart home, you can use interconnected devices to handle things like temperature, lighting, and security. You control these items remotely and they will communicate with one another the same way. The best smart home elements will be linked together using a hub or control panel giving you the ultimate control over what is going on in your home.
You can set up geofencing to work with these devices. Geofencing is a virtual boundary or perimeter. You specify the boundary in a web portal or app by giving the software permissions to access the location of your smart phone.
