@Derekeys and @aaronburro - It looks like SmartThings have reverted some software to address the discovery problem with iOS apps, so if you were having this issue, you should try again now and see if it works.
Thank you!!! I went ahead and got a cheap android tablet and that did the trick so i can’t test if I can just discover through iOS just yet. Thank you for your work, do you have a Venmo or somewhere we can donate? Thank you again!
Hi…all installed no problem
I want to use the presence sensor to show if someone is at/away from home (the iphone doesnt show that as you know in ST app) Then I can use that presence to trigger something else…
Do I create a routine to switch presence sensor on when iphone is present,(using member location) then another to switch it off when not present? - so 2 routines per phone?
I think thats what is said on an earlier thread , BUT having tried that , its showing as NOT present when at my home location?
Do I have to switch it on manually first time to get it to “sync”
sorry for the basic question…ive not used virtual switches before !
Thanks Brad…yes iphone has a similar location access which I have on…
That looks like what ive set up except I want mine to stay on rather than turn off.
Problem is it seems to think im not present when I am?
maybe I have to leave and come back for it to sync first time…
I DID use life360 for all this , but of course its disappearing in ST…
I was using Life 360 as my presence sensor in smarthings to trigger rules… , which worked really well… but its being removed from Smarthings integration as an app as part of the migration , as far as I have read …so I need to now move to iphone presence to control lights/alarms etc…
Hopefully iphone presence is more reliable than it used to be
I had similar situation first time I set this up. I turned off the presence sensor and turned it back on. It worked perfect ever since. Only thing, you need to keep your Wi-Fi on at all times. Even if your not home. Geolocation on phones work better when Wi-Fi is on. Also check that you gave ST app the permission to check your location “Always” in your iPhone settings. If it’s not set to “Always” it will only check if you open the ST app.
