Garage Door + Presence Sensor?


(Joe H) #1

Are there no longer any default apps that allow me to do something simple like open my garage when I arrive home via mobile presence? I don’t see any default apps out there anymore for this.

I find it odd that it is still extremely convoluted and difficult to automate some of this stuff after so much time has passed. Even to find a smart app in the iOS app is difficult as nothing is categorized and named in ways that make it quick and easy to navigate.

So I set my phone up as a mobile presence and it asked me what I wanted it to do when I arrive home. I typed in “open garage door.” Boom. Done. Where is the additional configuration? Why doesn’t it point me straight to apps that have to do with what I have typed in?
