About Android Presence I have noticed with both an old Note 3 and new Note 8. We do not use iPhones. So do not experience the consistency with those with this particular problem.
When I am at home, it may say I am AWAY… even if I open Google Maps app, refresh location, still says I am AWAY. I also reboot phone. Turn off wifi, wifi back on. Still says AWAY.
Tried resaving location for geofence in SmartThings. Still shows AWAY.
BUT… if I sign out of my SmartThings account, and sign back in it seems to update my location and no longer away after a few minutes or so.
This tells me it’s not necessarily Googles fault? But yet Samsung’s?
This is what irks me, their very own manufacturers devices do not work with their system, but their direct competitor, Apple does!!! Wtf?
Same with Samsung Cameras? Works with competitors but not theirs? I mean most of them, not just 1 or 2.
I still have to try life360… but really feel shouldn’t have to having a “Samsung” note 8??? Life360 also wants my cell number??? I don’t want different apps having this.
What would be nice is a “thorough” explanation “why” Android Presence doesn’t work from the actual developers of SmartThings. (Probably why ADT doesn’t incorporate it either).
