GPS scene trigger does not work


Go to solution Solved by MaikiMaik,

Question

Hi guys,

 

I'm going mad with Fibaro GPS scene trigger which refuses to work although my movement traces from my mobile are sucessfully recorded within Fibaro.

 

I have done/checked/tried:

 

  • create a custom location in localisations panel instead of using my predefined HCL location
  • using a separate variable instead of direct GPS location
  • checked data privacy settings on my IOS and allowed it for Fibaro to collect GPS (otherwise traces would also not be visible in Home Center)

 

Home location:

Collected movement traces:

Fibaro test scene:

What else can it be?!?

 

Note that I can trigger the scene manually and i get the notification.

Also I can trigger the scene via IFTTT even location-based!

 

Help much appreciated!

 

 

Home-Center light is on latest version 4.560.

  • I don't know why but after recreation of the applets it looks now similar (like right applet on screenshot above).

     

     

    Fibaro confirmed it is a bug!

     

    "We’re aware of this issue and we’ve already forwarded it to our engineers, who are currently working on resolving it as soon as possible. I’m very sorry for the inconvenience it caused but I have to ask you for a little more patience."

    First of all, triggering the scene manually, will always work. This is the way the block scene designed, to allow to user to verify the setup. The triggering portion of the scene is ignored.

    I'm using GPS location for my users and it works fine, but the different that in my scene (HC2 lua code) I'm using user ID for triggers. Block scene uses events trigger type  GeofenceEvent. see below Lua code of GPS block scene

    Have added this type of trigger to my location scene and it doesn't work either ???!!!

    I think it will be best to ask fibaro support for help and fix the problem.

  • Fibaro support asked me to simplify the trigger.

     

    Here it is but since the previous had only "or" conjunctions nothing changed:

    I try to make this work since 3 months and only recently upgraded to 4.560. Before I always was on the latest version as well.

    Were you able to get this to work?

    I am at the same position as you, my phone is tracked and i can see the points but it is not "triggering"

     

    I am testing the LUA scene at the moment with no luck.

    As the OP said i can manually run both the Z BLOCK or the LUA scene with no luck.

    Currently running 4.560 but has not worked on anything below either.

    Hi,

     

    It doesn't work for me either.

     

    I am at the same position as you, but my phone is tracked on only 28. september and i can see the points on just this day and it is not "triggering".

    I enabled everything on my phone, but not work.

    Currently running 4.560

     

    What is the solution?

    I had a lot of problems with the gps function of Fibaro and switched to IFTTT.  Battery saving as well with IFTTT instead of Fibaro GPS.

    Scene 1:

        GPS function off

        Manual

    With IFTTT: when I enter an area, start the scene above so that variable Yhome is set to 1

     

    Scene 2: Any scene that needs to happen when I come home I put the variable Yhome in.

     

    This worked as long as I had HCL.  (Now I switched to HC and having some issues, but trying to solve them)

     

    It's a workaround but I hope it'll help you.

    @Fodder1

    What trigger you're using in Lua?

    Hi @cag014,

    I used Notepad++ to open it, which messed up the formatting. I used wordpad and its all working quite well now!

     

    thanks

  • @den tsjonker Thanks for the workaround!  That is a great idea and also possible to achieve a "if A and B" condition with multiple variables and that should work indeed.

    My only problem with IFTTT is that it always triggers when I am leaving the place but only sometimes when I arrive.

     

    Does it look for you like this also? (I am wondering about the different wording in both applets)

    I haven’t had that problem.  Both leaving as entering the zone worked fine for me. 

    I’ve put my circle on 200m.

    The difference in the name is indeed awkward but they have both the same (yet opposit) function. I think it’s because of different creators of the app.

    Hi, I am on 4.570 and my scenes have not started working either. The device is reporting its geolocation (always has).  The device can move into and out of the  geoloation zone without triggering the scene...  UPDATE:  I think I have fixed this by recreating the scenes (removing some of the distance limits I had previously) and selecting a newly named device. It seems to be working.

  • Hi!

    I am on 4.570 now and it finally works!

    I have edited my scenes to insert a notification upon first test so as @Hankster says this might be necessary.

    But this is using the older Fibaro mobile app?

  • Do you guys experience the same that yes GPS is working since version 4.570 but not consistently.

    For me I mostly may only have 5 or even 0 data points per day, although my polling interval is set to 1 minute.

     

    Hence triggering of scenes is very unreliable.

    I have 2 iphones in use and behaviour is same for both.
