Ring Adds a Geofence

A geofence is a concept to integrate specific programmed reactions to changes in physical location.  Usually leaving some 'fence' or multidimensional area.  For example a geofence might be set to open a garage door when their automobile gets inside an established 'geofence'.   Ring describes its system: 

Geofence in the Ring App

This article will cover commonly asked questions about the Ring Geofence feature.

What is a Geofence?

A geofence is a virtual perimeter or invisible boundary around a particular geographic location. When you configure a geofence in the Ring app, the Ring app can remind you to set your Mode to “Away” when you exit the geofence.

Ring devices are designed to make your home security simple and convenient. You want them to be helpful and there when you need them, and blend into the background when you don’t. Rolling out today, Geofence introduces certain automations for the Ring App, such as receiving fewer alerts from your Ring Video Doorbell and Security Cameras when you arrive home, and getting reminders to switch your Ring Alarm and other devices to Away Mode when you leave. Geofence makes your home security more convenient and tailored to your personal preferences than ever, for added peace of mind.

When you set up Geofence, you create an invisible boundary around your home or business.
