How to use geofencing with your Amarillo smart home
When integrating geofencing with your smart home, you’ll have access to a wide range of possibilities. Before hooking up your system, finding out precisely what you are able to set up through your cell phone app is a good idea. There is a an unmistakable security benefit as you can instruct your system to automatically lock your main entrance, arm your system, and even shut your garage door when you depart. On the contrary, when you return home, you can utilize geofencing to open your garage, unlock your main entrance, or turn on lights.
You’ll appreciate added convenience and potential energy savings along with elevated security. Imagine having the ability to change your home’s temperature instantly according to your whereabouts. There’s no point in operating your HVAC system at max effort when you’re not home. As an alternative, you can have it instantly update when you depart and then switch back to your preferred settings as you return.
There are various implements you can program with geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Locking systems
- Smart plugs and lights
- Garage doors
- Motion detectors

Or you can program specific “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a fire alarm is triggered.
