    Are they API errors? If so, you can disable the logging of those under the API tab on the plugin Config page. Once 2FA is reset, you should not see any messages about that. My understanding is that there's nothing that can be done about the need to reset 2FA every thirty days or so. Best to put a reminder in your calendar for every 25 days or so, so that it can be done pro-actively.

    Must say that PHLocation2 seems to work very well with GeoFency on the iPhone.

    Well done Paul

    Just a comment on the User Guide for PHLocation2. GeoFency page. The text says:

    "The unique DeviceID from the mobile app is required but this ID is not available to the user within the app's GUI so has to be obtained from the first data upload to the plug-in.
    Set up and configure the EgiGeoZone app on your mobile device as detailed in the app set-up section below and send a test request from the app."


    I assume it should say

    "The unique DeviceID from the mobile app is required but this ID is not available to the user within the app's GUI so has to be obtained from the first data upload to the plug-in.
    Set up and configure the GeoFency app on your mobile device as detailed in the app set-up section below and send a test request from the app."

    Also for accuacy I guess the following line

    "Within that message will be the DeviceID for that instance of the application enclosed in square brackets. e.g.[A123B654C987]. The ID is the part between (not including) the square brackets. Copy the ID from the HS log and enter it here."

    Should really read

    "Within that message will be the DeviceID for that instance of the application enclosed in square brackets. e.g.[A123C12A-98F0-1234-1234-A123C4567D12]. The ID is the part between (not including) the square brackets. Copy the ID from the HS log and enter it here."

    Need to test this a bit further but currently highly impressed so far.

    Thanks, I'll set up a reminder.

For my wife's account, got the "verify" button right away but had to keep trying the code...about 20 times until I finally got verification.

    Pleased to report that all seems to be working properly...and no more "account access" messages from Apple.

    Will start playing the maps and geofences next.
    Cheers! ...and thanks Paul ...donation on its way.

    Wow, didn't realise that phLocation2 was in the works. I absolutely LOVE the Life360 integration, and it's much more stable than the other android apps I've tried!

    However, I've already made some locations in LIfe360, and I was hoping to import them rather than having to recreate them in phLocation2. The app has syncronized multiple times, but there's still no button showing up on my Life360 account root device (under properties, of course).

    Am I missing something?

    I'm seeing an issue when leaving my home area. I've noticed that after just one or two location updates (I have Backitude sending updates every 30 seconds with a minimum distance to move set to .08 miles), my Home Direction will change from Stopped to Approaching. My path leaving home winds back around through the neighborhood so I'm sure that between the first and second location update that my distance may get closer to Home. The issue is that I thought there is supposed to be at least 3 location updates before the direction is updated from Stopped to either approaching or leaving. It's almost like the plugin is remembering the last updates from the previous day and sn't being reset to 0 when the direction changes to stopped after I've been home for some time.

    Here are my config file values:

    HomeLocDirTimeOut=5
    HomeLocDirCount=3
    HomeLocDirBuff=128

    This may have been answered before but I cannot find it. Is there a way to have the map viewer trace a route as opposed to spot collections of locations? It would be much better if it just followed the road rate in the numerical order. This may be too difficult to accomplish however?

    Some questions regarding PHLocation. First some background - I'm a longtime user and fan of PHLocation V1. I use it with Geofency to trigger events when an iPhone goes in and out of specified fence areas. I also have iBeacons in my home and cars so Geofency can tell if we're at home or in the car. So far, I've only used Geofency with PHLocation. I haven't had a need (yet) for HomeSeer to know our actual locations. When I need to know someone's location, I can use the iPhone's "Find Friends" app. But, I haven't had a use-case for sending location-specific (e.g. latitude/longitude) information to HomeSeer. Having said that, some questions:

    1. Other than "keeping up to date" for future fixes/enhancements, if Geofency is all I need for now, any benefits to upgrade from PHLocation V1 to V2?

    2. Is the interface between PHLocation V2 and Apple location information based on official Apple APIs?

    3. If I don't need location-specific information (latitude/longitude), is Geofency still the best way for Geofence use, or can built-in Apple functionality provide Geofence info to PHLocation so as not to need Geofency?

    Regards.

    Think I got this setup correctly with Egizone… it even saw my first zone (home).

    but no devices are showing up in device manager. this is what the log looks like:
    Apr-26 8:15:05 AM PHLocation2 (BuildDeviceLists) Device list rebuild complete.
    Apr-26 8:15:05 AM PHLocation2 (BuildDeviceLists) No external devices to monitor, disabling monitoring.

    Apr-26 8:15:05 AM PHLocation2 Error (BuildDeviceLists) Error: DeviceID EDO is nothing for EgiFence Ref:1323
