    Paul has been called to help a friend’s business. He wrote to me that it was demanding much more time than he expected, leaving him very little time to spend on this project. He said he wanted to get back to it, but was unsure when he would have time again.

    My employment has similarly affected my ability to spend time on these forums, so I completely understand.

    All that being said, PHL2 is working perfectly for me. There is only one issue of expiring cookies for iCloud authorization tokens. I reset my accounts monthly to avoid getting nag emails from Apple. There have been two instances of Apple breaking the authorization scheme over the last 8 months. Once late last year and again a few months ago. Other than those two instances, mine has been working well since initial installation.

    PHL2 requires 2FA (2 factor authorization) to be used, it will not work with 2-step authorization. The one issue that Paul hoped to address is the expiration of the authorization tokens, but as of the last time we spoke, he still had not found a solution. He has not been able to find anything from Apple to allow the tokens to be persistent or to automatically renew.
    Thanks for your update rprade

    I find this works perfectly with GeoFency.
    Love it!

    Don't waste the time for me. I just dumped and rebuilt everything and it's all working.

    I’m going to set up a test installation over the next day or so so I can test on a clean system. You should be able to delete iCloud devices and recreate them. You also should be able to “Rebuild Child Devices” under the root device.

    Has this project stopped?
    There's been no new release sins January, and no post form developer.
    Anybody know?

    So I dumped the nodes and iCloud accounts now I have created the iCloud accounts and verified but in create device drop down there is no iCloud account pick to set up the device. Do I need to remove the plugin and start all over? My Geofency devices are working BTW

I have re-authorized the iCloud accounts, stop and re-start the plugin, signed on the iCloud accounts via PC (they are showing the movement) and still no updates. Should I shutdown the plugin remove all the HS3 nodes and let the plugin rebuild everything?
    Have the phones moved more than the minimum distance? Nothing will update until the phones post a new location that is greater than the minimum distance to move.

    You can force an update by selecting ”Force update of position devices” under Other on Configuration, then manually polling the accounts.

    I do not see any difference . I just changed (in geofency webhook tab) the http post to a http get call to call the json api .

    What’s the battery drain like?

    I have also not bothered with the iCloud setup and use GeoFency with the plug in - As you said, it works perfectly
