Arrival sensor without Smart things app


(Stephen Fowles) #1

Does anyone know a way of having a smart phone (Android) as an arrival sensor without installing the SmartThings app itself and giving the person full access to the configuration? I don’t mind installing anything else.

Life360 is an official integration that will do this.

Some people find that too intrusive because you could track them throughout the day. So you can also use IFTTT just have it turn on a virtual presence sensor. That way there’s no tracking until the person gets to your house.

Wi-Fi connection tracking is yet another option. These are all discussed in the presence FAQ. :sunglasses:
