What is geofencing and how to make your life smart with Easykon

Did you know that geofencing can make your life smarter?

Geofencing: what is and how does it work

Geofencing is a location-based service that makes one of your devices run a programmed action as soon as you enter or leave a specific real geographic area bounded by a virtual border, i.e., the geo-fence. It is an "If/Then" system (if this happens, then this happens). So, once the condition (if) is met, it activates a trigger that performs the required action (then). For example, as soon as you enter the virtual boundary you set, the heater or air conditioner in your home will automatically turn on!

Awesome, isn't it?

Do you have an ordinary KNX light? By installing Easykon for KNX, you will be able to integrate it with all smart platforms, such as Apple HomeKit, in just a few moments.
