How to use geofencing with your Palm Springs security system
You’ll discover a range of possibilities when using geofencing with your home security. Before implementing your system, determining exactly what you are able to program through your app is a good idea. There is a definite security benefit as you can order your system to automatically lock your front door, engage your alarm, and even shut your garage door while you depart. On the contrary, when you come home, you can utilize geofencing to open your garage, unlock your front door, or switch on lights.
You’ll be happy to have added convenience and potential energy savings along with elevated security. Just consider having the ability to adjust your home’s temperature instantly based on your whereabouts. There’s no reason to run your furnace or A/C at full blast when you’re away. Alternatively, you can set it to instantly adjust when you exit and then switch back to your ideal settings upon your return.
There are quite a few implements you can operate via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Door locks
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Surveillance cameras
- Motion sensors
Looking for an alternative to geofencing? Set automations and schedules
Besides geofencing, many security systems allow you to configure scheduling and automations. For example, you might order your entrances to lock or outdoor lights to turn on at particular times each evening. You could even have multiple actions happen at once when you’re turning in for the night. Or you can program customized “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a fire alarm goes off.
