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.
Want to know how to automatically arm your alarm by driving down your driveway?
In this instructional video, we show what a geofence is and how to set it up on your Vera Home Automation and Control System.
After setting up your own geofence, your home will automatically do things like turn of the lights, lock the doors and arm the alarm automatically when you leave your home and do the opposite when you come home.
If you are interested in getting a Vera home control / automation system for yourself, you can find them here. These controllers start at less than 100 dollars.
