This is a thread for iOSLocator QA that allows for tracking iPhones with the HC3. 

It is installed with

Please login or register to see this link.

 

The QA has been floating around in various threads in the past and this gives a home for discussions and new versions.

 

QuickAppVariables

  • HomeVar
    Defaults to 'iOSHome' and is the name of the global variable where home status is stored.
    Possible values: 'all_home', 'all_away', 'some_home', 'unknown' 
  • status
    Where all location info for users are stored
  • HomeName
    Defaults to 'Home'
    Name of the place home. To avoid that home is logged as the HC3 name...
  • AwayName
    Defaults to 'Away'
    Name of the place away from a location

 

The QA uses the defined locations, defined in the general/location panel

Inside the QA a table 'ACCOUNTS' need to be defined

Ex.

Please login or register to see this code.

  • 'name' is username - should be without spaces and strange characters (used in global variable name)
  • 'home' is true if user is part of people that live at home - used to decide if all at home etc.
  • 'deviceName' is name of iDevice, matches so "iPhone" matches 'Jan's iPhone'.
  • 'deviceType' is name of iDevice type. Also matches.
  • 'id' is the HC3 user id. If the user is not an HC3 user the id is not needed. This allows the QA to track non-HC3 users too.
  • QA if not nil creates a child device for the user with the status if the user is home or not
  • global if not nil will create a global variables with the user's current place
  • icloud.user is icloud username
  • icloud.pwd = is icloud password

 

Besides setting the global variables - that works for any user, not only HC3 users. If the 'id' field is set to a HC3 userID a GeofenceEvent will be emitted when user enter and leave locations, similar to the builtin geolocation function.

 

If you use ER4 you can use rules to trigger on geo events.

 

If id is set you can capture it with a rule like

if not you can use the global variables

  • The problem is that you can't have ' inside a string defined with '...'

    Please login or register to see this code.

    The string stops before Nee and starts again after. 

    Try another character, like the forward or backward leaning tick.

    Good morning Jan,

    I am cleaning up and combing some QA's in the IOS locatorthere is a small problem but cant find the solution.

    I still have in my variables listed your names Allice, Ann, Tim and Bob.

    In the QA those names are replaced by my family names, so no Allice, Ann, Tim and Bob anymore in the QA.

    If I do a search on those names the system can't find them.

    I checked all my devices if I dont have by accident a second IOS locator running. If I remove those names they will come back.

    How to sort this out, what am I overlokking?

     

    In QA Updater I dont see IOS Locator listed

    Thanks in advance,

    //Sjakie

    Great share as always 👏 Thank you

    Would it be possible for you to enhance it to support Android users, getting the location from Yubii App - so they are counted as users for the home?

    of cause getting android location from Google maps could be great as well - I would like to sponsor an Android phone, if you are willing to invest the time :-)

  • I haven't found a good api that doesn't require api keys and payment (googlemaps api, google play api, google geolocation api)

    Have you seen anything?

     unfortunately I was not aware the api was a subscription service.

    what about getting the data from Yubii app , even though its not as good as the iCloud solution

  • Yes, just merging in the location events from devices not being tracked by the iOSLocator app would probably work - the advantage would be the allAway and someAtHome tracking.

    I'm doing some refactoring of the app so it will work better with the updater (keeping main only for user setting like ER4)

    Jan, names I sorted out. I am mnot used to look in the variables of the  QA, sorry. I changed it overthere and problem solved.

    One other thing is I modified in QA variables HomeName = Thuis it shows also in General- Variablesso fa so good but in the log of my IOS locator it show home is  set to HC3-serienumber.

    What did I forget?

  • You say that "This error comes up for both users", but Arleta seems to get her position according to your log?

    The 401 error you get is identification error. Check email address and pwd again - and retype it to make sure no "invisible" characters have snuck in...

  • It has nothing to do with your current location.

    This error

    [19.06.2022] [10:13:42] [ERROR] [QUICKAPP1802]: Error {"type":"error","msg":"Access denied for Sjaak :{\"data\":\"\",\"status\":401,\"headers\":{\"X-Responding-Instance\":\

    says that you are denied access to iCloud by ....Apple. (status 401)

    Usually that is because of wrong credentials.

     

    I admit that the error you get is strange. The 401 should have generated another type of error. and the data is an empty string too...

    It's almost like you are blocked by Apple. Can you log in again to iCloud and see that it works?

    Maybe you have hit them too many times with bad credentials in the past so they have blocked your IP?

     

    In the code there is a line

    change it to another number by modifying the last digit and see if it changes anything
