Prescence?

Prescence stopped working in my flows around 14 days ago.
Anyone experienced the same or am I just unaware of some “upgrade”? Or just plain stupid…?

What is it exactly that isn’t working for you? Is it not noticing you leaving/coming home?

Yep. According to Homey I left the house 12 days ago…
… and never came home(y).

Did you check the location of homey in settings in the app. Had one time that my homey was 2km away suddenly😬

Yes. I checked. It is correct.

I also noticed it was not working right.
But, was still looking if it was because of something I did.
It is still working but not always.
I think for me it is working about 60 percent of the time.
Glad it is not just me.

Did you check the apps access to your location? It might have changed rights or something.

If I check the app’s “Location”, my position - that is my phone - is on the right spot.
However, I don’t know how Homey itself knows where it is? Is there a setting for that?

A few days ago I had the same issue. After a reboot of Homey the problem seemed to be solved. For me still not clear what causes the issue.

Glad to hear that! After several reboots here - I’m still not at home…

Does the better presence app give you a different result?

I don’t use the Better Presence app. And I don’t want to. I want Homeys announced presence function to function.

Nah, u want us to gamble what options u tried and which u didn’t.
We have to guess if u checked ur location.
We have to guess if u did a PTP.
We have to guess if u re-installed ur mobile Homey app.
We have to guess if u turned the automatic location finder off and on again.
We have to guess what Homey version u are running.
And we also have to guess what phone OS u are running.
Blaming Homey’s announced Presense doesn’t work is the easy part.
Giving as much information as u can is always the hard part!

Thats very clear to me. … you left the wife 12 days ago…and moved in with your girlfriend. And the wife wont let you in the house anymore to get some clean underware. So sounds logic, homey thinks the same (its a smart ass)

Oke serious, what you could try… change the location in the homey app (even when its correct) to “verwegistan” or the place where the girfriend lives. And after that wait a while and change it back to the correct location.

“Nah, u want us to gamble what options u tried and which u didn’t.”
Nah, I just started the thread with a question if anyone else had noticed the same u-no…

“We have to guess if u checked ur location.”
Nah, alreday said I did…

“We have to guess if u did a PTP .”
Well nah… did that dude… first thing

“We have to guess if u re-installed ur mobile Homey app.”
You mean something went bonkers with all the families phones/apps? At the same time?

“We have to guess if u turned the automatic location finder off and on again.”
Yeah - sure did that!

“We have to guess what Homey version u are running.”
Threepointtwopointzero ya’no…

“And we also have to guess what phone OS u are running.”
Apple OS 13.3 is the name

“Blaming Homey’s announced Presense doesn’t work is the easy part.”
But spelling presenCe isn’t so easy.

“Giving as much information as u can is always the hard part!”
Now I tried!
Nice talkin to ya!

Damn, you got me! Actually I’m in Tanganyika… :wink:
Haha!
Thanks for your suggestion. I will try to position me on the African continent. Or so.

Correct, sorry for that.

Lovely to see that we are all so nice to eachother :heart:
