How to use geofencing with your Mesa home security
You’ll find a wealth of possibilities when using geofencing with your home security. Before implementing your system, find out exactly what you are able to set up. There is a an undeniable security benefit as you can have your system automatically lock your main entrance, engage your alarm, and even bring down your garage door while you leave. On the other hand, when you come home, you can utilize geofencing to open your garage door, unlock your main entry, or turn on lights.
You’ll be happy to have added convenience and the opportunity for energy savings along with enhanced security. Just think about having the ability to change your home’s temperature instantly in response to your location. There’s no sense in running your furnace or A/C at full blast when you’re not home. Instead, you can program it to automatically change temperatures when you depart and then switch back to your preferred settings as you return.
There are quite a few devices you can control with geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Smart locks
- Smart bulbs and plugs
- Garage doors
- Video cameras
- Motion detectors
Want a geofencing alternative? Program schedules and automations
Besides geofencing, modern security systems allow you to set up scheduling and automations. To illustrate, you may program your doors to lock or exterior lights to activate at designated times every night. You might even have multiple actions occur at the same time when you’re heading to bed. Or you may configure specific “If This, Then That” rules like deactivating front door locks whenever a safety alarm is triggered.
