How to integrate geofencing with your Helena smart home
You’ll enjoy numerous possibilities when operating geofencing with your home security. Before implementing your system, find out specifically what you are able to configure. There is a an undeniable security boost as you can program your system to automatically lock your front door, activate your alarm, and even close your garage door while you leave. Conversely, when you return for the day, you can take advantage of geofencing to open your garage, unlock your main entrance, or switch on lights.
You’ll appreciate added convenience and the opportunity for energy savings along with elevated security. Imagine having the ability to change your home’s temperature automatically according to where you are. There’s no need to operate your HVAC system at full throttle when you’re away. Instead, you can set it to instantly change temperatures when you depart and then switch back to your preferred settings upon your return.
There are numerous devices you can control via geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Entry locks
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Video cameras
- Motion detectors
Want a geofencing alternative? Program schedules and automations
Along with geofencing, some home security systems let you set up scheduling and automations. For example, you might set your main entryways to lock or outdoor lights to turn on at particular times every night. You might even have a few actions happen at the same time when you’re turning in for the night. Or you can configure specific “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a safety alarm is tripped.
