Thermostat Geofencing Could Be Just the Ticket for Your Home in the New Year

Considering how hectic life can be nowadays, any new technology that promises to make your life a whole lot easier is certainly worth a look. Thermostat geofencing is a feature that can make your life more convenient and cheaper. Keep reading to find out more about this smart thermostat feature.

What is Thermostat Geofencing?

Geofencing can be described as a virtual border around your house. Thermostats that offer the feature use your smartphone’s GPS to tell your location.

You’re taken to be at home once you cross into the virtual territory. The thermostat will then automatically set your preferred temperature. However, when you go outside the boundary, the thermostat will consider you to be away from home. It will then raise or lower your home’s temperature a little to save you money.

The Benefits of Geofencing

Geofencing amplifies the luxury of smart thermostats. It takes the effort out of setting your thermostat. Once you arrive home, it adjusts your indoor temperature to your preferred preprogrammed setting.

After long and exhausting days, you’ll come home to a cozy living environment. If you’re always out and about or have an unpredictable schedule, you’ll find this feature to be hugely beneficial.

Geofencing also helps you save energy. Once you’ve left your home, the thermostat switches to away mode. It allows the room temperature to fall or rise a bit to reduce unnecessary energy consumption. That will positively impact your energy bills.


Geofencing requires your thermostat to be linked to your smartphone and to use its GPS to track you. For it to work, there are certain settings that you’ll need to always keep on, including:

  • Wi-Fi
  • General location services
  • Background app refresh (for iOS devices)
  • “High accuracy” location services (for Android devices)

Geofencing will transform the way you use your thermostat. It will add to your home comfort and help you optimally use your HVAC system to save on energy costs.
