What are the Geoservices Features?

Is the Geo location piece used as a trigger for things to happen within the alarm system like lights on or garage door opening?

Geo services in Alarm.com rely on cell tower signal triangulation.

Crossing a Geofence can impact many aspects of rules depending on how you set them up.

  • You can use it to override thermostat settings when leaving home
  • You can generate arming reminders based on leaving or entering Geofence locations
  • You can filter activity notifications based on mobile devices having left or not having left a Geofence.
  • You can automate lighting devices based on crossing Geofence locations.

It cannot be used to initiate security-based rules. You cannot disarm your system automatically by crossing a fence, or unlock a door, etc.
