Location and Presence (Owntracks) - HowTo

@scanno Menno, can you add this info to the above info, in case one uses the IOS app:
Authentication is a settings option which can be disabled with a slide switch. So no Editor and stuff needed.

I have a question in Flow options : when i see Enter Geofence trigger, if i set all users, that mean any users of the list need to arrive or all users of the list need to arrive ? There is less less less options than the default location…

Good Q. It says Wildcard with the All Users choice, so my guess it triggers the flow whoever enters the geofence. BUT all users should have given their geofence the same name, f.i. [home]

What options are you lacking?
F.i. with ‘geofence leaving trigger’, when the last person is set to Away, it automatically marks that person as the last person who left. So it’s a bit more combined.

Sometimes i need to set the last person who left or the first person who arrive or a specific person who arrive and another who is already here, etc…there is not enough possibility to configure unfortunately.

What is the equivalent as

When
-the first person arrived
-the last person left
-someone arrived
-someone left

And
-somebody at home
-nobody at home
-specific person at home
-specific person not at home

Examples for arriving @home:




I’m sorry, i just get it. I will try that. Thanks !

Well, i tested this app for days and it never work on my wife iPhone…
Can’t have her in my fences…
Same configuration on our iPhone…
I gave up ! :cry:

@jeremypsl To be honest it didn’t work for me as well. I had the same problems as Raytestrak reports early in this feed. With the Authentication settings almost everything was solved immediately. Fence detection took one or two days to calibrate as it seems. Now it is working perfect.
If you want to try again there is a lot of help standby to help you out!

Did you create a seperate “user” for W’s phone inside the L&P app’s config?

What is the equivalent as

When
-the first person arrived
-the last person left
-someone arrived
-someone left

And
-somebody at home

If you have additional Q.'s, just ask

The best solution is to desactivate the homey location and use this app in a flow for each person to trigger his stats (present or absent) and then, keep using stock cards.

Which homey location desactivate? there have 2 option enable Home/away detection or Find homey’s location automatic? And if I desactivate, this may have an effect on e.g Sun Events app

The home/away detection of each devices in homey settings.
The Location and Presence app will do the job instead.

ok I will try. one more think Location and presence app settings need enable this 3 option?

And if I use Location and presence app and off home/away detection , Can I use the homey factory presence card, or just Location and presence app card use it. becouse than I will rewrite all flow are uses factory presence…

As i said, you keep the homey presence cards.
You just change the way you are locate.
