    Understood and thanks. Should have RTFM.

    Not sure how that got checked, but now all three of my service accounts show up with the Granddaughter's e/mail on the Edit Service Account screen.

    Thanks again,

    MM

    What does "ignored because not known" mean and what do I need to do to make it be "known?"

    It means you have “Ignore Unknown Devices” checked on her service account. See the user guide:

    https://jphuddlestone.co.uk/phlocati...udAccount.html

    Ignore Unknown Devices

    DO NOT enable this option until you have added all the User devices that you want included in the plug-in as this option will prevent new devices being discovered.

    A single iCloud account may have many devices registered to it but you may only want to monitor some of them in the plug-in. Once all required devices have been added, enabling this option allows the plug-in to ignore the state of the non-included devices which speeds up the polling process considerably for accounts with multiple devices where only some of those devices are included in the plug-in.

    Paul is aware of the 2FA expiration issue and is trying to fix it. It was all good until Apple changed something. He does not have a fix at this time but is endeavoring to find one.

    Here I have 2 Icloud account connected. But didnt register them with the plugin at the same time.

    I had to redo the 2fa for my account 3 weeks ago.
    At the same time I redid the 2fa for my GF account.

    But last week I had to redo It for my GF account like if the last time didn’t happen.

    so i guest there is a predifined period of time for this

    Same here. Does the 2FA checks expire for the plugin?

    Thanxs gentlemen, like I mention earlier I thought I missed a trick somewhere.. So using two VD (Current2 and Previous locations) we get a FIFO logic which then would provide the proper sequencing between true previous and current locations. I have to say PHL2 has introduced me to several new concepts, events and implementation cross platforms, apps and alerts.

    Paul, I've continued using EasyTrigger with "Status Only Device:" deselected albeit I get all of the controls being displayed within right most panel. Did Spud make any commitment of modifying EasyTrigger to manually remove the controls? Mike

    Randy, your suggestion works I've created two events with two VD and they work as advertised, thanxs. I'm not sure how to apply your statement below, are you inferring that we can somehow capture specific data from the message panel and/or history map (database) and if so how? Mike
    This begs the question: what automation need is driven from the value of the previous known location? If it is just for data, the PHL history report, the message panel or a history map will have the data.

    The previous location device will never contain None as a location since I only set the device when entering a known location. In the next iteration, I'm going to do what Randy suggested and store the current location to a hidden virtual device when entering a known location and then copy that devices to the previous location when exiting a known location..This way the previous device will always contain the previous known location instead of being the same as the current location.

    I'll then be able to use this previous location to announce the last place someone was if their current location is None and then what city they are currently in. For example, let's say I just left work in Houston and had to drive to Dallas and my current location is None. If someone wanted to query my location, the system would announce that I was at work and currently in the city of Dallas along with distance and drive time home.

    I have an event that utilize the previous location to announce when I'm leaving from any known location. Rather the creating a separate event for every known location, I can just use the one event and the previous location to announce where I just left from without having to create new events every time a new known location is added. I also use the previous location to override the "exiting Any location event" for when I want to do something different. I do this when leaving home or my in-laws at the moment.

    You're correct. Since I'm updating the previous location with the current location, you have to do it when you enter a known location. This means that the previous location and current location will be the same when you're at a known location.

    Since I only needed the previous location for one specific event, I didn't care if it was the same as the current location. I was lazy and did not create another virtual device to temporarily store the current location so that the previous location could be updated when exiting a known location rather than entering one. I'll probably update this in my next set of updates.

    Also, I'm still using the script commands to update the virtual devices since I did not want all the controls visible for the virtual devices. Hopefully Spud will consider allowing status only devices to be copied so we can use easy trigger to update the virtual devices.

    I thought I remembered something similar where as one was using Virtual Devices to capture previous condition whilst combing throught the forum but can't remember where. Mike
    The first step is to outline what it is you want to do.
    • At the moment you leave a known location you need to write it to a virtual device as a previous location.
    • This means you must store the current location in a virtual device upon entry to a known location, call it "current location virtual".
    • Then you must write the value of "current location virtual" to another device, call it "previous location virtual" upon departure from any known location.

    So you need two virtual devices and two events.

    Event 1
    If user enters any known location
    Then write the PHL current location to "current location virtual"

    Event 2
    If user exits any known location
    Then write "current location virtual" to "previous location virtual"

    This begs the question: what automation need is driven from the value of the previous known location? If it is just for data, the PHL history report, the message panel or a history map will have the data.

    Just think about it...

    You are triggering on the phone entering a known location. At that moment the current location changes to where you are right now, then the Event copies your current location to the previous location - making them both your now current location. You will need to move your current location to the previous known location before you enter a new one. This will be difficult logic to figure out.

    I would be curious how Steve's works since he uses the same logic
