I set the “get location” function from the smartphone, on the SmartThings app.
since the phones are not displayed between the devices in the app, wanting to know if I am displayed as absent or present, I created some switches with vEdge Creator V2.5 that should turn on if the memro’s position is “at home” and turn off if “away from home”. but these switches do not change status!
What am I doing wrong???
in the IDE I can see them as “iphone of xxxx” Type placehoder, location
home, online status, last activity 5 minutes ago, in the events list, I see the status change from present to absent
ok but so I should select me absent or present, and not the smartphone directly in ase to my position
I would like to do everything automatically thanks to the position revealed by the smartphone! but first I should figure out if it works or not! because at the moment I cannot understand if from the app (not in IDE) I am displayed present or absent
smartphone and ST Get Location provides your position. The virtual presence sensor (or virtual switch if you choose that option) reflects the status through Automations to sync between the two. The virtual presence sensor offers both (Present or Not Present) and the switch (on/off)
ok tests done, I set both the virtual presence sensor and the sending of a message, both in the case of absence and presence.
I left the house and after a few minutes the sensor changed status, and the “absent” notification message arrived
now I’m back, for more than half an hour now … and nothing … no message and no change of status, the presence sensor gives me absent! while on the IDE in the event list, it turns out that I have been present for 48 minutes now!
what do i know? can it be wecore’s fault? even if I have installed it but never used it?
no controlled automation and nothing is wrong! then, however, I did 2 automations, one of the virtual presence sensor and the other of notification with message! still gives me absent since yesterday!
