Geofencing boundaries are defined according to GPS coordinates, the area of a cellular radio network, or the WLAN network. Beacons can also be used in smaller coordinate systems. The geo fencing can cause actions and responses from devices with signals when they connect to the system. Device reactions sometimes depend on additional data collected by additional sensors. Via IFTTT instructions (if this then it is) complex applications can be implemented which sometimes require extensive user knowledge and additional sensors or devices.
These are considered to be important building blocks for the daily use of the internet. Geofencing examples in daily use are the positioning of mobile devices, protection against the theft of machines, vehicles, or objects, finding people and equipment, and the latest promotional messages that are personalized to provide relevant information on a point of sale or point of interest. Some retail and hotel businesses even impose virtual geofences around their competitors’ territories. So when you approach this limit, consumers will get a notification asking you to visit another company.
