Life360 Presence Setup and Multiple Circles

(Keaton Hoskins) #1

I have currently #life360 setup with a couple circles configured. I have my immediate family (Wife and kids) in my main circle and I have an extended family with another circle. I am wanting to add another circle for adhoc needs, i.e. house keeper, gardener, visiting family etc. to allow for presence options or such.

Mainly, I want to use the extended family circle for my in-laws to allow when they stay to not trigger the alarm to set when we leave them home. I am only finding that I can setup 1 circle, thus meaning I would have to share my location with those people. I only want to share my location with my wife/kids in my main circle and not the others.

Is there a way to have multiple circles setup to use for these automation pieces, not allowing anyone outside of my immediate family to see my location, or my wife/kids locations?

I am not sure what I did was correct but it does seem to be working. I have @tmleafs Life360smart app installed. I created a second smart app by coping and pasting the code but changing the name. So I know have 2 Life360 smart apps installed and can add the second home circle.

Assuming OP was referring to the official smartapp, it may be that you can’t install multiple instances of that one, but you can do so for the community-developed version.

That would seem to be one way of getting multiple circles, from what you’re describing (the only way?).

Thank you so much for the SA link. I will give that a try! That should of been my first search, for a community developed Life360 app and not the native ST one.
