The presence arrival sender/ sensor works just fine, but I notice that presence arrival sender does not change the ‘Smart Home Monitor’ setting. It will report as Disarmed, even when I am away according to the ‘My Home ‘ app page
The presence sender eats batteries fast.!! A brand new Duracell after a few days is shown as 75% on the Notification, Activity Feed page
I have also Arlo Pro and Arlo Q cameras, and the Geofencing arm / disarm used to work with an older phone running Android 6 Marshmallow perfectly.
A phone with Android 8 Oreo has erratic Geofencing due I understand to the battery saver changes in Android 8 Oreo. The Arlo app was running in the back ground.?
Does the Smartthings Geofencing app work reliably with Android 8 Oreo.??
If it does, I can save some battery costs instead of using the presence arrival sensor.
Welcome to SmartThings community.
If you are using a ST Presence sensor for your car or back pack and are a tinkerer or even a wonnabe tinkerer. Than you may want to investigate this option for your keyfob presence sensor battery issue.
Check out this thread:
For cellphone based presence detection, you may want to integrate with Life360 for Arming/Disarming your SmartThings Home and you Arlo cameras.
And as for Arming/Disarming your home, you should do this in the ST Classic ap routine settings.
