If you are already using our Alarm.com app, you could easily benefit from Geo-Services – a feature that allows your smart home to know where you are. The system uses your phone’s location to improve your smart home automation.
If you often forget to close your garage or lock your door, this feature can allow your system to notify you when it identifies you left the house unsecured. Just tap the notification, and the Alarm.com app does the rest. You never have to worry again.
By anticipating when you leave, the system can also set your thermostat back to save energy. If no one else is home, it will set the temperature back until you pass the threshold – called the Geo-Fence – to notify your system that you’re coming home. Then it changes the temperature to comfortable, completely autonomously.

If you have cameras, the system can know not to record any or all of your cameras while you are home. The best part about Geo-Services is the feature is easily customized. You can set multiple fences at different distances away from your home to trigger different aspects of your automation: perhaps a fence 1 mile away to trigger lights and another fence 5 miles away to trigger the thermostat. Everything is completely up to you.
