I’m hoping it’s just my lack of experience but I bought a bunch of hardware, everything is setup and working, except the online docs (and phone app) lie and don’t let me do what I want to do.
I want the simplest automation ever. When I come home from work… turn on the lights. That’s all.
But it’s not that simple. For starters - the online web page (https://support.smartthings.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002056383-Custom-Automations-in-the-SmartThings-app) is wrong. Step #2 says to touch/select “Custom Automation” which doesn’t exist in my app.
Onto the step #3 what I want is " Touch Based on a member’s location to trigger an Automation when your phone arrives or departs from your Location’s geolocation." Where is this option???
In my app it hints that this exists (“Member location. Example - When Dad comes home”. But other than that there is no such option. The two options I have are “When member is home” and “When member isn’t home”. There is nothing for when “When member arrives home.”
My geolocation is set to my exact location and the map is spot-on over where I live.
Yet I have no option anywhere to do something simple like run an automation when I arrive home.
Any ideas why? This is my first day with the device and I’m a bit disappointed that it lacks the functionality to do something as simple as this.
Thanks in advance !!!
