The Geo-services feature provide the Alarm.com app user with a variety of alerts based on the user's physical proximity to the alarm system. Physical proximity is established by setting up a virtual “fence” around the alarm system's location, and alerts are triggered by passing over the boundary of this virtual fence.
Current features include:
Arming reminders: the app will alert you if the system is armed or not armed based on entering or leaving the virtual fence.
Thermostat control: automatically adjust target temperature on a Z-Wave thermostat based on entering or leaving the virtual fence (Z-Wave devices and Premium Control plan required for this feature).
Turn Video Recording On/Off based on entering or leaving the virtual fence (Cameras and Complete 2.0 plan required).
Requirements to use Geo Services:
A Mobile Pro or Total Home monitoring plan.
-iPhone 4 or higher with the latest version of the Alarm.com app (download link).
-Android v 2.1 or higher with the latest version of the Alarm.com app (download link).
