How does Geo-Services work?
The Geo-Services feature provides 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: Alerts when the system is armed or disarmed based on entering or leaving the virtual fence
Thermostat control: Automatic adjustments to 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)
Automate 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.
