This is not really an ST issue, but was hoping someone here might have some insight.
I use Android presence on my Wife’s and my phones to turn my ST alarm on/off when we leave and arrive. It works just fine. And has worked for sometime. It has been very reliable.
In a sense it is still very reliable. The problem is it has gotten delayed by a couple minutes. At the point where the alarm used to come on is now maybe a 1/2 mile further, if not more. When we would come home the alarm was usually disabled while we were a block or so from the house. Now we end up waiting at the garage door for it to go off. It always goes on or off, but just not timely.
I use a combination of ST android presence and Life360. I have found that one or the other always works.
By looking at the time the location was sent to the ST app or the Life360 app I can tell it is probably an Android issue. I just can’t figure out what it is. Both are phones are running Android 8.0. It has worked fine with that version until recently.
As an experiment I also tried IFTTT location. Same issue there. Also tried the new Samsung app and same result there.
I have checked battery optimization, battery saver, every other setting I can find. I looked at the location circles and no change there. I have researched android gps issues and can’t find anything there.
As I said it always works just not timely.
So just wondered if anyone here had any other ideas.
