I use these routines for each phone for presence.They are Not local.
VP x is a virtual presence device and I then have routines for each phone one for on and one for off, someone is present, no one is present, all phones are present, and no phones are present. When an entry point is opened all VP x’s are turned on which forces a presence check All of these are local and it has been working without any issues since I set it up.
If this is something that you want to try but don’t quite follow what I described I could post my routines
Yeah just did that. I think this might be the correct phone but I no longer see my presence device within the ST app. Did we ever see that? Maybe the ones I seen previous were the life 360 ones? Confused.
When a device is chosen for presence through the official features (and it is the device which was running the app where you made the selection), there’s no longer any indicator in the app itself, which is actually pretty annoying.
The only thing that happens is that it shows up as an option for “member location“ when you create a routine.
OK, you can’t get those back in the new architecture. You can create a virtual device to serve as a proxy for presence, and then it will show in the app. A lot of people do that. But you’ll have to have a routine to turn it on, and a routine to turn it off.
Yeah I’m not too fussed about having the icons back.
My iPhone presence isn’t currently working for now ever since this new iOS update.
I’ve correctly created the correct routines but they are not triggering when I leave now.
I also use vEdge Creator as the virtual presence sensor for people in my house. I then use people’s phones as the trigger for the sensor. When Life 360 was available for presence detection, it worked great. With it gone, phone presence works great on my Android to detect presence and trigger the sensor. However, my GF’s iPhone is wonky. It will detect her departure, but never detects her arrival. Makes it hard for routines that require all members be present or when I’m not home but she is.
You mentioned in the phonetracker readme that you have an executable to run for the phonetracker… can I get that somewhere? I’m having problems with the py script. My python installation was missing the requests package. When I finally figured out how to install that, now I’m getting trace back errors. I figured it might be easier for me to just run the exe.
