Make Life Easier with Geo-Services
You’re probably aware that a smart security system provides you with a safer, more secure home and that our smartphone app keeps you in control, in the know, and one step ahead of unsual activity. But did you know just how helpful a Jump.ca Security x Alarm.com powered home can be?
Alarm.com’s opt-in feature, Geo-Services, is helpful when you’re leaving your home or on your way back.
Using a digital map, it uses your smartphone’s location on a digital map to understand where you are and which direction you’re headed. It makes several things easier when you setup your Geo-Services rules in your Alarm.com dashboard.
1. Forgot to lock-up? No worries.
Do you ever leave home and question whether you left the garage open? Geo-Services is here to help.
2. Save energy when you leave the house.
When you’re running behind, it’s easy to forget to set your thermostat back a few degrees, which is an effective way to lower your energy bill. A Geo-Services rule for your Jump.ca Security smart thermostat will take care of this. When Jump.ca Security sees that you’re leaving (and that no one else is home), your smart thermostat will set back for automatic savings – until you...
3. Return to a warm welcome.
Geo-Services works in reverse when you’re on your way back home to ensure that things are comfortable when you return. Not only can it turn your thermostat back up, but it can also turn on your smart lights as you arrive home.

4. Pause your security cameras when you don’t need them.
You want to see the activity that your smart security cameras capture when no one’s home, but you don’t need a video alert every time the kids run through the house when you’re there with them.
Geo-Services allows you to automatically pause any, or all, of your cameras’ recording schedules when you’re home, making it easy to conserve video clips and eliminate alerts you don’t need.
5. Use multiple geo-fences to customize your rules.
It takes longer to adjust the temperature than it does to turn on the lights, which is why a single, circular geo-fence won’t time every task perfectly. But it’s easy to set up more than one geo-fence! For your ‘returning home’ rules, you can create a 10-mile fence to trigger your thermostat and a 1-mile fence to turn on your lights.
