How to integrate geofencing with your Mansfield smart home
When incorporating geofencing with your home’s security, you’ll find a wealth of options. Before installing your system, find out precisely what you are able to configure. There is a an undeniable security bonus as you can have your system automatically lock your main entrance, activate your alarm, and even close your garage door as you depart. On the contrary, when you return home, you can use geofencing to raise your garage door, unlock your main entrance, or turn on lights.
You’ll be happy to have additional convenience and the greater potential for utility savings along with elevated security. Just think about having the ability to adjust your home’s temperature automatically in response to where you are. There’s no need to run your furnace or A/C at full throttle when you’re away. Alternatively, you can program it to automatically change temperatures when you leave and then go back to your ideal settings when you return.
There are quite a few components you might program with geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Locking systems
- Smart plugs and lights
- Garage doors
- Video cameras
- Motion sensors
Looking for a geofencing alternative? Configure automations and schedules
In addition to geofencing, many home security systems permit you to configure automations and schedules. To illustrate, you can set your entrances to lock or exterior lights to activate at designated times each night. You could even have multiple actions take place at the same time when you’re ready for bed. Or you might program specific “If This, Then That” rules such as unlocking your front doors whenever a smoke detector goes off.
