@theedpope I know how the app is supposed to work. It just isn’t updating SmartThings consistently, unfortunately. Randomly it just fails to update at all. For what it’s worth, it seems to update just fine for my phone, but not my wife’s phone. The main Life360 account is my account and her account is just “associated” with my account as a person of interest or whatever. I’m not sure if that has something to do with it.
@625alex Yeah, I tried that, but unfortunately, the SmartThigns presence seems to like to find us at an intersection (even while at home) that is about a half mile from the house. There is just no way to include that intersection without picking up some of the highway. The result is having to decide what kind of false positives I want. Falsely tell ST that we’re away when we’re at home still, or falsely tell ST we’re home when we’re just driving semi-close to home.
For now, Life360 seems to be much more accurate and I’m just hoping it begins to actually update ST like it should. A backup I’m looking into is utilizing Tasker to POST to ST when we’re home based on Wifi network. My wife and I always have our phones on us and are always on Wifi so that is just as good as GPS for us. We also both have Android phones and I’m already well versed in Tasker.
