Use Tile (BT beacon) with Homey

Hello,

I would like to use a Tile (beacon) with Homey so Homey can know when I am in its range.

I tried the application called « Beacon » in Homey but the Tile is not detected.
Is there a procedure to follow? I see there is a button on the Tile.

Thank you in advance.

Chris

what about starting here

I must do something wrong…

On the Homey:

  • I go to devices
  • I press the + button
  • I select « Beacon »
  • it installs « Beacon »
  • it displays « searching for devices »
  • I tried to press on the button of the tile (I saw on the internet that it is the procedure to make it discoverable)
  • timeout 30000ms

:pensive:

You did ofcourse first register the tile in the Original tile app (not the homey app)?

After that, you did set the tile on hide?

Its not a tile 2020?

Hi Roy,

I did not register the Tile with the original Tile app. Do I have to?
It is the tile mate 2020.

Best regards,

Chris

Tile 2020’s have been reported not to work with Homey, read about it in the thread of the app
