If you scroll down in the list of devices you should see the tiles specificly.
At least that is how i have done the flow

Im not on 2.0 but my tiles (pro) work but “freeze” after a while. I’m afraid that it won’t be resolved in 2.0. Not sure when I’m going to upgrade. Your issue sounds a little bit like mine.

My workaround is to have a flow to reboot the Homey every night.

I can not get my beacons to work :disappointed_relieved::frowning:. First, I tried to add my chipollo classic with the app, but both are not recognized. of course I have removed the chipollo app from the cell phones so that they can be found as well. Unfortunately without success. However, the chipollo can be found with a beacon scanner … apparently the chipollo are simply not supported.

then I tried it with beacons from gimbal (fyx.com). the beacons are recognized correctly by the app and can be added. However, these are only recognized for 2-3 minutes and then no longer until I remove the battery and insert again.

With other apps, these are recognized permanently. the gimbals are set to 100ms.

Use the latest homey Firmware an beacon App (beta) version

I do not know what else to do … does anyone have an idea?

Hi @Gerrit_Ekelmans thks for your answer. Thats a huge difference 6 or 20 m. with my tile mate ive got Always arround 8m. Going to test a bit more, and considering a tile pro, 20 m sounds prommising

Meanwhile if there others with suggestion to get more distance, glad to hear that.

Ok, so my flow triggers when i come home /status set to home when beacon is inside range. But it do not trigger my flow when i leave / status set to away when beacon is outside range. The prescence is detected correct if i check my tile in the device tab. Anyone with the same problem ? (I am on Homey v2.0.5.)
