Samsung smart tag 2 as presence sensor?

Basically a rehash of the question here: Smartthings Galaxy smart tag or Samsung presence sensor

Just wanted to see if new tag has added presence sensing function or not…


I have low hope this will ever change. Why a location device wouldn’t be used a presence sensor I am surprised… But it seems it has been omitted by Samsung for reason… I can’t see how battery life would be any different, if the update rate to the cloud is the same… Then why would it add any power consumption for SmartThings to recognise its inside a certain geofence.

Such a shame I didn’t realise this before buying these for geofence of specific devices (car, house keys, my wallet, dog etc). I guess that’s on me, but I had expected a device like this to be able to trigger automatons based on location so didn’t research too much.
