I am writing to report an odd situation I have come across. I have two phones, one is a Samsung Galaxy S8 and the other an Iphone SE. Recently, I was working on getting an automation to work that resets my mode to night between certain times if all users are present. I don’t use native presence sensing of the ST app using phones as I have found it to be rather unreliable. Instead, I have found greater reliability using the presence sensing capabilities of the Life360 App and plugging that status in as a seperate “Presence Sensor” device. I use this in all my location based automations. They all work fine.
However, I was recently trying to troubleshoot my “night mode reset” automation and on both platforms, the triggers, which include a time range and the location status of home are consistent. However, on my iphone, it is showing the 3rd trigger as Member location. That is to say, it is trying to use the traditional sensing method. The where and when is set, but the who is not. Again, I don’t use this method. On my android phone, it correctly shows the two separate presence sensing devices with correct status as triggers. When I try to update the IOs app use the right triggers, I hit done as if it went through and when I go back and look at the automation, it still shows the traditional sensing as if I didn’t make any changes.
I have been having some on and off issues updating automations on the IOS app where I get “network error” even though I’m connected to either cellular or wifi. Everything works fine in the Android App. I have tried logging all the way out and signing back in on both apps. That helped my “network error” on the IOs but still doesnt seem to be syncing the automation correctly. Has anyone else seen any issues like these?
