[APP][Pro] Life360

I just restarted the app. (Did already the same yesterday) and now I receive data! :slight_smile:

Log shows update every minute. Seems to be working now, let see tomorrow if my debug messages come through when I leave for work.

A few feature requests:

  • Please make the device an on/off device corresponding via the left/arrived status. That way it shows usefull information great on HomeyDash
  • Please make the device show (at least) when the device left/arrived on the device history page
  • As requested before; please add an additional trigger that triggers when a device leave or arrives
  • Please make the device integrate better with Homeydash; let it show all possible ‘capabilities’ on long pressing the device

Am not at all sure that it is even technically possible, still it would mate the app even better.

TIA, Cheers, Cacti

I wast just going to the forum to ask / suggest for the feature to make the device go on/off (white/grey) according of the status of somebody being home. So I agree with first suggestion above.

Regarding integrating with homeydash, this is not a part of this app, but homeydash should be altered, and I do not expect that to happen soon as this is a device not used by many people I suppose. But you can always ask in the homeydash topic.

To conclude, for now it seems to work with me as well and this is a very nice presence solution. Thanks!

I just added the device to homey dash, and I can already see the following capabilities:
-battery percentage
-distance to homey
-GPS accuracy
-Speed

What else would you like to see? But again, this needs to be added on the homeydash side.

Yup, Homeydash does show some values now. Didn’t try affer the latest update. What I would like to see is the place someone is at, and maybe a different color for the tile when someone is moving. That would be awesome. :blush:

Regarding homeydash.com:

Numeric values are automatically shown on a device tile, no change in homeydash.com needed for that.
Showing the place someone is at is not that easily integrated.

@MarcelT if you can create a boolean capability indicating the ‘home state’ I can add it to homeydash.com. When you do, please add the same one to the Family iPhones app.

(You should be able to create a hidden capability using "uiComponent": null unfortunately it seems it’s still not documented)

I had some trouble with setting the heimdall status when someone left. It sets the alarm on even when another device is still at home. So that does not work very well yet. I have a combination now from tge homey pressence and Life360. So when I am set away by Life360 and no one is at home (thru homey pressence) then heimdall sets the alarm status. This seems to work so far. I have also added 5 places now in life 360 and they all give a status via homey now. Awesome :grin::grin:

The question is what is the homestate? How will it be defined? Close to Homey?

Hi, I think your internet connection dropped. I will check if I can better handle the error.

I’d see the same value’s that triggers the “Device kwam binnen” flow trigger.

My life360 app on homey stops working every time. After a minute of 15 or so. A restart helps, but only for a limited time. Somebody else with the same problem? Or a possible solution?

Could you send me the logfiles? I think this has to do with internet connection…

Do you mean “Maak diagnostich rapport”?

You might be right. I had some issues with homey being not available from time to time as well. Replaced my router yesterday, restarted the app and it is still working up until now.

However, last night it did 2 times think I was 27km from home for a short while, resulting in setting my status in homey at “away” and back home a bit later. This morning that happened again. Did anyone experience this behaviour before?

First of all what a great app. I am using it for home detection. I noticed a strange behavior that sometimes I got a notification in the timeline that my battery status is xx%.

Probably updates in the timeline for apps is set to on

There isn’t a setting for apps regarding the timeline so far as know.

Yes there is:

That’s interesting… I don’t have that option.

Hmmmmm. I run the android app
