Triggers based upon multiple distances from home

Hitherto, via IDE groovy, I’ve been able to trigger my heating to come on once I’m 5 miles from home

I feel sure that it is possible to set up such a trigger with edge tools, I’ve just not yet identified the solution

Grateful for any advice (nb I’m an IOS user)

If you use Amazon Alexa and have the Alexa app on your phone, you can create Alexa routines based on geolocation of the phone.

What method were you using?

As I have commented elsewhere, the SmartThings Location allows the configuration of 3 Linked Places in the same way as the Location, and that includes a geofence radius up to about 18.6 miles. On introduction they were only available on Galaxy phones and when you tried to set up a Member Location in a Routine you got a warning if not all the phones supported them. I have a non-Galaxy phone and I no longer see that warning and the mobile presence device definitely includes the Linked Places. I haven’t been able to look further into it yet. So I was wondering whether the iOS app also reflects these changes.


Thank you

I was really hoping that “Linked Places” would offer a solution

However, in an IOS world, all Linked places are blanked out

Thank you

Yes, Linked Places would work perfectly.

Unfortunately, IOS phones are still unable to use this feature
