Curious. I’ve been using BeaconThings for about two months now, but don’t find them very reliable. I’ve been sitting two feet away from a RadBeacon in my office for the past four hours. Smartthings shows I left my office 8 hours ago and haven’t been back.
I thought that these “laggy” types of responses might be because I had background app refresh off for BeaconThings, but that isn’t even an option under iOS 9.2.1. If I open the BeaconThings app, select a beacon that’s nearby and hit save, BeaconThings will usually update itself to the appropriate presence (meaning, I’m not away, I’m sitting two feet away from the RadBeacon), And then sometimes after BeaconThings updates, Smartthings will also update to the correct presence status. Other times… not so much.
