OREM, Utah—Pinnacle Security believes geofences could help keep its customers from straying.
The leading summer-sales-model home company, based here, recently announced the launch of Alarm.com’s Geo-Services technology. With the free service, customers can set geofences, which are perimeters around locations, using an iPhone or Android device. When they leave or enter the geofenced area with the hand-held device, they get automatic reminders sent to the device to remind them to arm or disarm their system.
