How to integrate geofencing with your Arlington security system
You’ll discover a range of possibilities when using geofencing with your home’s security. Before installing your system, find out specifically what you can set up. There is a definite security benefit as you can have your system automatically secure your doors, arm your system, and even shut your garage door when you depart. On the contrary, when you return for the day, you can take advantage of geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your main entrance, or switch on lights.
You’ll appreciate extra convenience and the greater potential for utility savings along with enhanced security. Imagine having the ability to change your home’s temperature automatically based on your whereabouts. There’s no need to run your furnace or A/C at max effort when you’re away. Instead, you can have it instantly change temperatures when you depart and then resume your ideal settings when you return.
There are numerous components you might operate via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Entry locks
- Smart plugs and lights
- Garage doors
- Surveillance cameras
- Motion detectors
Want an alternative to geofencing? Set automations and schedules
Besides geofencing, many security systems permit you to set up schedules and automations. To illustrate, you can order your doors to secure or outdoor lighting to engage at designated times each and every evening. You might even have multiple actions occur at once when you’re turning in for the night. Or you can configure customized “If This, Then That” rules such as deactivating front door locks whenever a smoke detector goes off.
