How to use geofencing with your Manhattan smart home
You’ll find numerous possibilities when using geofencing with your home security. Before installing your system, find out exactly what you are able to set up. There is a an undeniable security benefit as you can program your system to automatically lock your doors, engage your alarm, and even shut your garage door when you exit. Conversely, when you return for the day, you can take advantage of geofencing to open your garage, unlock your front door, or illuminate lights.
You’ll enjoy additional convenience and the opportunity for utility savings along with enhanced security. Just think about having the ability to adjust your home’s temperature automatically based on where you are.

There are various implements you can program through geofencing, including:
- Smart thermostats
- Entry locks
- Smart lighting and plugs
- Garage doors
- Motion sensors

In addition to geofencing, some security systems permit you to set up automated tasks and schedules. For instance, you might order your doors to lock or outside lighting to activate at particular times each evening. You might even have multiple actions take place at the same time when you’re ready for bed. Or you might set specific “If This, Then That” rules such as deactivating front door locks whenever a fire alarm is triggered.
