    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:

    No word from Paul regarding 2FA yet. It is working again as of a week or two ago, but it still expires after a month or so.

    Is there any status on the 2FA for iCloud solution? I noticed that the thread seemed to be quite for the past week or so. Mike

    I can verify that I too was able to get my 2FA for iCloud Service to provide a working code which I did Saturday evening and it seems to be work still (waiting for shoe to drop!)

    Paul, has something changed or was this an anomaly? Mike

    Same for me, now both iPhones verify 2FA no problem. Much relieved. At least for now.
