Geofencing Automation Tiles

Article Summary

You can easily geofence any of your automation tiles. Geofencing prevents users from triggering the action linked to the tile if they aren't within a certain distance of the tile.

For example, you may not want users to be able to unlock doors or check in while they aren't in your space by taking a picture of the tile and scanning its QR code.

When geofencing is enabled in a tile's settings, the tile can only be used if the user reading it is near or within your space. You can define the center of that area along with its radius (how wide the circle around that center point is).

  1. Log in to the Admin Panel if you aren't already.

  2. Click on the tile you want to geofence.

  3. Click on the Restrictions tab.

  4. Enable the Geo-fencing toggle.

  5. Look up your space using the Search place bar.

  6. Define the tile's geofencing Radius.

The Radius is based on the location you've defined in step 6.

If your location is '12 Chester House, SE5 J7K' and you set the tile's Radius to 2 meters, users will be able to trigger the tile's action up to 2 meters away from that location.

  1. Define the geofencing Precision.
Precision relies on each user's phone geolocation accuracy.

The higher the precision level, the more accurate the user's geolocation must be for them to be able to trigger the tile action.

Tiles placed indoors typically require a lower precision level since phones geolocation is hindered within buildings.

  1. Click the Save Changes button.

All set! Your tile is now geofenced.
