Ever wanted to automatically close your garage door or lock your doors or turn off your water or make sure all your lights are turned off when you leave your home?
How about automatically turning on your driveway lights or disarming your alarm or turning up the heater when you arrive, again all automatically and you don't even have to pick up your mobile phone.
Well this can all easily be done and very inexpensively I might add. In fact, if you already have a Vera controller and your devices already installed, it is totally free.
The technology is called Geofencing and we tell you how to trigger scenes with your Vera using this technology.
You will need the "House Modes Plug-in" as described in this video.
If you are not sure how to set up a Geofence, don't worry. We have a complete step by step video here.

Did you know that countries have different Z-Wave frequencies?
Z-Wave is a wired and wireless standard. On the wireless side, It uses a known frequency to communicate with other devices and controllers.
When buying Z-Wave products, you want them all to have the same frequency or they will not be able to communicate with each other. You should be able to check this frequency in the products specifications. If it does not say it, you should ask the seller if it is the frequency you need.
This should not mean much if you are buying your Z-Wave parts from a local supplier but if you like to shop on Ebay, Amazon and Alibaba, you may want to make sure your Z-Wave parts are working on the same frequency as your Z-Wave controller for your country.
For the USA and Canada this frequency is 908.42
Below is a chart with other countries and their freq's
