    FYI, BLLAN doesn't work if iPhone goes to sleep, but if iPhone uses a location service like FollowMee then BLLAN works. See:

    Just found this looking for something else...
    I've started doing this using homebridge and my iPhone

    My "Home/Not Home" device is available to homebridge as a switch, and I've set automation events on the phone that turn it on/off based on geo-fence. I am using apple's new home app in the iOS 10 public beta, not sure if the geo-fence options are available in iOS 9.
    This does require an appleTV in the house to work, so that you can access your devices from outside your home network.

    I used to do it with IFTTT, and had it turn the same device on/off
    I was having problems with this. I live in NYC, about 1/2 block from the subway. And my phone wasn't handling the re-establishing cell signal and entering the fence at the same time very well.
    If I was above ground as I approached home, it worked very well.

    Hi Steve,

    Probably best to post the error messages from the log that happened during the install in a new thread here: http://board.homeseer.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1488. That way sooty/Paul will see the post.

    Cheers
    Al

    Thanks,

    I guess this is a script that runs via an event. Any of you guys tried it on Linux?

    I have now migrated to the SEL pro.

    Seem to recall using a similar PI on windows called find my phone but think that died due to lack of support.

    Regards

    No. PHLocation is a plugin. It's not in the updater though as it's free. It's absolutely the cat's meow. Check it: http://board.homeseer.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1488

    Hi Steve,

    Geofency talks to PHLocation, although you could set it up to talk directly to HS as well using json or a custom asp page. Using it with PHLocation makes it much easier.

    Cheers

    +1

    If you want to use it with a Geofencing app, Geofency works really well.

    Cheers

    Mmm, I guess that would be the case. Sounds as if I'm back to square one. Surely there's a demand for a reliable geofence app, tried a few but never been successful. The quest continues [emoji20]

    Regards
    Steve

    I have found that ithings don't respond to a ping when the screen is off.
