I just setup smart things in the home in the last couple weeks and I also have a new Google pixel phone running Android 7.1 Nougat (bone stock).
I’m having a problem where smartthings frequently thinks my phone has left the home, sometimes even while it’s in my hand, then within a few minutes it thinks my phone has returned. This causes certain automations to trigger in smartthings the most problematic of which is A) setting the alarm while I’m still home resulting in intrusion events (and a loud siren I have setup) and B) when it thinks my phone has returned, it opens our garage door. The last couple times I tried putting my phone back into these routines we found the garage door had been open all night because smartthings thought I left and came back while I was sleeping.
I’ve verified my GPS is set to highest accuracy, I significantly widened the geofence area for my home and I’ve made sure to exclude smartthings from doze…same problem.
My wife’s iPhone 6 works flawlessly, not a single issue with this, so thinking it has to be phone related, maybe with nougat and it’s doze/sleep/battery optimizations?
Anyone else seeing the same and have a resolution?
