Our presence sensors are extremely reliable at determining whether we are home/away but (as is well documented) our mobile presence is all over the place. My daughter’s older iPhone (running an older version of iOS) updates correctly and timely about 80% of the time. My i5 is pretty accurate (I’m always on ST!) but my wife’s is never accurate. She has to physically open ST when home or away to update the correct current location of her device.
No surprises I’m sure.
So I thought I could use the presence sensors to ping our iPhones for location updates every time their values changed from home to away and vice verse. The code is straight forward and appears to function correctly as I have it sendPush to confirm that it’s been run. Unfortunately, it still fails to update the location on my wife’s phone despite acknowledging the fact that her car has left.
Is there any other method that will invoke what I’m looking for? Any ideas or methods that have been found to increase reliability of mobile presence? I know the issue is widespread and commonly reported - just trying to increase accuracy. It’s hard to arm security functioning of ST when it doesn’t know whether or not your home.
