It can trigger many actions directly, or simply display a notification on screen to do so. In other words, the app works in a similar way to apps like Tasker, which allows certain events to initiate an action on your smartphone or even a remote server. * New for developers: Now you can develop your own plugins for EgiGeoZone * * See: http://www.egigeozone.de/developer/default_en.html * Note: To configure server connections and to send e-mails in the background a some special knowledge is necessary! Before leaving a bad review, please inquire for advice in the forum. The following actions can be triggered when entering or leaving a zone: – Contact a geofencing service, such as the Geofancy module from FHEM, to control home automation devices, or call your own URLs when entering or leaving a zone. – Send a text message – Send emails – Other actions: Call ‘Tasker’ tasks Switch Wi-Fi on or off when entering/leaving Switch Sound on or off when entering/leaving Switch Bluetooth on or off when entering/leaving – Live Tracking Possible applications: – Open or close your garage door, turn on the heating or turn it down, switch lights on/off, etc. EgiGeoZone can interface with most home automation servers – Co-ordinate your car share.
