You can setup Geofencing events. You might be wondering what’s Geofencing, don’t worry because I am here to explain. Geofencing helps you define a virtual boundary with the help of GPS technology, then you can create trigger events on the top of that Geofencing, like when you as an owner come within that range, then the lights should automatically turn on. This is just one such example of Geofencing but it really can do many things, the possibilities are endless when all these technologies are integrated seamlessly.

Caseta Smart Bridge is available for sale on Amazon at $119.89.
