iPhone as presence sensor?

I took a break from Smartthings for awhile and now trying to get back into it. It’s amazing how much I’ve forgotten. I had created virtual presence sensors for each family household member and I thought I had each virtual switch tied to each of our iphone’s geofencing, but for the life of me I can’t find the automations that trigger these virtual switches. How do I create new ones? The iPhones are not devices, so there is nothing to test for. Help.

Phones no longer show up as Devices, but you can check for their presence as “member location” when you go to create a routine. So you can use that to turn your virtual Presence sensor on and off.

Phones do display in https://my.smartthings.com :slight_smile:

Thanks. I remember now.
