Ive been trying to use my phone, or actually 2 phones as a presence sensor in the new app. My old phone was added in the old app and worked fine.
Now i have 2 new phones, which i want to use as presence sensors.
Both phones are added to the smartthings app and seem to be working fine. The ‘smartthings find’ plugin also shows the correct location of my phone.
I just cant seem to use the presence for any automation. Firstly ofcourse i tried the built in automations to use presence to switch on or off a simulated switch… its not working.
I tried changing the device type from ‘placeholder’ to ‘mobile presence’ as it was in the old app… also not working. Tried to use the webcore device type and again no luck.
Ive tried all the regular trouble shooting things like restart, remove and add again etc.
The ‘new’ app is already 1 or 2 years old? And presence is a built in function which should work automatically. Am i missing something or doing something wrong?
Is this working for anyone else or is this thing broken?
