Hello Forum people, My name is Zach and I am a Moderator for Amazon. I enjoy Film Making, Graphic Design and Web Design in my free time (Different than Kindle Freetime of course). I am also an avid adventurer, looking forward to my next outing!
I don't have it yet but I think it already does that. Just say you are leaving. That is how it works. Geofencing would make a lot of sense though. Can just be via IFTTT. I do that with my thermostat and two other smart home devices, motion sensing and cameras.
I would like to see this feature added as well and I’m amazed that it wasn’t included when guard was launched. It’s absurd that within routines, I can adjust my thermostat, turn off my home theater system, lower blinds, lock the deadbolt, turn off my lights, and be alerted when someone comes onto my porch. All by just taking my cell phone with me. But I can’t enable an alarm automatically? (I can set a reminder for when I leave to enable it through the app! But I seriously can’t automate this?!)
its, just, absurd. I LOVE everything my echo does and it’s an incredible ecosystem. But this seems to be a significant oversight by the development team.
