How to incorporate geofencing with your Wilmington smart home
When using geofencing with your home’s security, you’ll have access to a wide range of possibilities. Before implementing your system, find out specifically what you can configure. There is a an unmistakable security bonus as you can have your system automatically secure your doors, arm your system, and even shut your garage door as you leave. On the other hand, when you return for the day, you can take advantage of geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your front door, or illuminate lights.
You’ll appreciate added convenience and the greater potential for energy savings along with improved security. Imagine having the ability to change your home’s temperature automatically according to your whereabouts. There’s no sense in running your A/C or furnace at full throttle when you’re not home. Instead, you can have it instantly adjust when you exit and then go back to your ideal settings as you return.
There are various devices you can operate through geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Door locks
- Smart plugs and lights
- Garage doors
- Surveillance systems
- Motion sensors

Besides geofencing, many security systems allow you to program automated tasks and schedules. For example, you can set your entrances to lock or exterior lighting to activate at particular times each day. You might even have a few actions take place at once when you’re heading to bed. Or you might program specific “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a smoke detector is tripped.
