Arrival and leaving routine--why is there a delay?


(Dan Carter) #1

Im currently using my Android as a presence senor, when I arrive I can see it kick in and raise my garage door, within a block of my house. When I leave, it’s at least 3-4 mins before the leave routine kicks in. Why is this?

Are you doing this with a goodbye routine?

If so, when you set the routine to trigger when “everyone leaves,” there is a setting on that screen that says “action delay time (minutes).” You can configure how long ST will wait for you to be “away” before the routine runs.

It’s helpful to prevent false positive goodbye events. Since mobile presence is never 100% accurate, you don’t want your goodbye routine to fire if your geolocation momentarily places you outside your configured home radius, for example.
