Answer: "This is a boundary that is created around the location of a smart phone. It is mainly used by the advertisers to shoot ads at you mobile if you enter their area. But now it is being used widely in home automation. Appliances in the house can be set to turn on or off based on whether the house is within the owner’s geofence. A thermostat integrated with geofencing technology can turn on or off around the times you typically enter or leave your home on a given day. You do not have to program the temperatures according to your schedule."
