    The Profit, thanks for this information. Since Geofence appears to support web hooks, I wonder if similar functionality to PHLocation could be implemented via the BIG5 or BIG6 plugins? In the meantime, I'm experimenting with a combination of motion detectors and HSBuddy geofencing.
    PHLocation used to have a lot more functionality than just Geofency but the iPhone and Android features have dropped due to security changes that have been made.

    Even though PHLocation still works with Geofency, it might be time to move on to a new plugin just to have the support. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Motion detectors might be a little better than the iBeacons as Bluetooth can obviously reach beyond walls. I guess it depends on the use case. I use iBeacons in each car. When my phone enters my home geofence and I’m also in my car then it opens my garage door.

    jeanv, can you provide more information about "...AND my phone sees the iBeacon (within 60 seconds..means it is close to the door)...?" How is this implemented? How does HomeSeer know that your phone saw the iBeacon within the past 60 seconds? Thanks!
    He is using an app called Geofency on his phone with an HS3 plugin called PHLocation. Geofency works with both iBeacons as well as geofences. When he enters a geofence it lets HS know which person has entered the fence and then when he gets close to the iBeacon, the Geofency app will send another message to HS.

    Geofency doesn’t have any monthly subscription, unlike some of the other solutions, and has been working great for us, unfortunately the plugin developer no longer supports PHLocation so it looks like HS has removed the plugin from their list. It does still work with HS4 but unless you already installed it, you might not be able to use it.

    You can't enable/disable codes, only add and remove them.

    Does anyone know:

    It sounds like you can manage codes in the locks root device but I’m wondering if you can enable and disable lock codes via an event? I’m wanting to create a code for a neighbor but only want it to be enabled when we are on vacation or enable the house cleaners code on the day/time that we expect them to arrive? Is this possible?

    Hmmmm, so this presents a bit of a problem. I bought the homeseer motion detector that is literally hard-wired into the eve of the roof...(https://shop.homeseer.com/collection...odlight-sensor).

    The ZWave controller is on the opposite corner of the house. Is there any sort of hand-held module I can buy to walk up next to the motion sensor and include it without having to try to figure out how to power the wires while standing next to the controller?

    I guess it's the opposite as bringing the device next to the controller, I want to bring the controller (or controller tool of some type) next to the device.
    Z-Net and a portable battery to power it work great.

    It's because both the inclusion and exclusion process requires direct line of site. The regular use of the lock with z-wave is facilitated by the mesh network.

    Yep same. What ultimately worked for me, was completely disassembling the lock, walking over to the z-wave controller, and setting it up there. Then re-installing it on the door.

    Installed it, no problem, added it to the network and it sees it but gives an S0 security error and the only device created is the name of it with no controls.
    no battery, no nothing. any ideas?

    I removed it and re-added it, same Click image for larger version

    Nevermind.... I went back and restarted the zwave interface,,, tried again and it completely bombed...said it added a node but nothing was there.
    removed that and retried and got 6 devices. Guess mine just wanted to be finicky.
