I’ve been trying out the presence sensor of the phone app for the past week or two. I’ve set it up to arm or disarm SHM based on my presence, and give me a notification when the change occurs.
I walk to and from the train station for my commute. When I am 400m from home (±25m) the presence sensor changes. Its pretty predictable. However, its not a direct path to 400m - there are some turns and I have to cross a stream, so it ends up taking me about 7 minutes from when I close the door to when the presence sensor changes. Its always at pretty much the same spot though.
There are a couple of reasons this isn’t that great. One, I might stop and talk to a neighbor and I’d rather not disarm (and unlock the door and turn on the lights) 5 or 10 minutes before I can see my house. Second, I’ve had the experience while running errands that I flip presence while driving a few streets away.
Is there a way to change the threshold for presence? I’m guessing its 400m, and I would love to try it at 100m or even 50m.
