    It is not going to be the same. It was clumsy to create a known location for each known location and each device. There is now a pool of known locations for all devices. There is still a trigger and condition for each device as it relates to a global known location. The triggers are “Location Enter” and “Location Exit”. The conditions are “User at Location” and “User Not at Location”. The only things missing are direction and distance from location. Straight line distance to home is provided. So you can Trigger when you enter or leave the Vortex.

    Having known locations calculating driving distance, time and direction of travel was dependent on Google and required every device to have its own known locations. This plug-in has eliminated all reliance on Google and has centralized known locations so that every device relates to them.
    This should answer my query above, but I don't see how to use it. I cannot see anything in my events to use location enter and location exit, could you explain a little more please?

    Now understood, all sorted thanks

    Hi Paul, I've only just upgraded to this version, mainly to get rid of the elevation errors as the old version worked very well still, however I seem to have lost some important functionality. I use near and not near to home and known locations to trigger events and set and unset my alarm, unlock doors, etc.

    However none of the new devices created in PHLocation 2 seem to have the same function so for example each device has a 0.1 mile radius and in the old version used to indicate near or not near to all known locations based on that. Am I missing something obvious or do we need to do that differently now?
    I've tried using current location changed and is not equal to or is equal to home, which looks like it will work, however the other known locations I have entered are not showing in the child devices so how do I use them?

    Same here. Everything is configured like it should, but I still get API lookup errors.

    No, it doesn’t. Drive time to home and distance to home require 1) a home location to be set up and 2) you have traveled away from home more than the minimum distance to move as configured for that device. The time at location will start running as soon as you move more than the minimum distance to move as configured for that device.

    Thnx,

    I did set-up some additional API's and now devices are working except "iPhone John Time at Location" .

    I assume this device does not require an API,

    Hi All. I got a new iphone. So i reset my icloud service account and authenticated the 2FA piece with no issue. When I try to poll the phone however i get the following message: PHLocation2 Error, (PollAccount) Auth failed for AppleId. and (idmsaAuthenticate) Missing result data for Ref:4538. I'm not sure why this is happening as the Phlocation 2 iCloud service shows that I've successfully verified it. Does anyone else have this issue?

    Here you go .


    Make sure ''Enable control using JSON '' under ''Remote Control Settings'' is activated ( Go to hs3_IP:Port/setup and click on Network tab).
