Geofencing-anyone, any help


Neo Andersson
 Share

Question

Hello guys

I have tried to contact fibaro support regarding my geofencing issues, but appart of thedefault questions and answers unfortunatelly noone could help me.

Maybe here I can find some answers.

My geofencing doesn't work at all. Never triggers.

All the usual, and necessary settings are correctly set up.

Location allowed for always

No restriction to run in backround

No battery saving restriction

I enabled for Yubii everything.

I have tried with several different accounts, not only with admin.

Double checked gps coordinates.

I  YUBII setting, geofencing is ON, so as I say, everything is set as it should be. Still nothing triggers.

 

Any Fibaro experts here?

 

Thanks a lot

Fellow HA's

In HC3 my GEO does't work either.

A very good alternative is IOSlocator QA from JGab.

    As a temporarily workaround, you could use IFTTT. 

    IFTTT and FIbaro...Uhhh...I have tried several times, several tasks...never worked..Or to be honest sometimes worked sometimes not.

    Very unstable connection of IFTTT and Fibaro..but thanks for the suggestions

    What kind of solution did you find on IFTTT bytheway? What applet is that?

    @Neo Andersson

     

    In IFTTT you can make a Geo Fence for leaving or entering an area. IFTTT can trigger a small scene e.g. for notifying someone of turning off the alarm.

    If you only see an Applet when you arrive at a destination, just make a new applet:

    Push new applet

    Push +This

    Fill in “location”

    Select location icon

    Select “exit” icon

    Select Geo Fence

    Etcetera

    Two question..

    1. On your  phone can you config to notify when Ybii accesses GPS location?

    2. Could you post your scene that Geofencing triggers?

     

    I am using Geofencing almost an year on my HC3  (and HC2) for all mine family members and it works fine...

    I meant set notification on your mobile phone when Yubii app accesses to Location. AT least you will know that app is works. 

    (I'm using Samsung "droid" phone) 

    Another suggestion , you can download

    Please login or register to see this link.

    just to monitor geofencing... )let me know if you need help)

    Use this line 

    {"$geoAction",{state="enter",trueAct={"","debug","$geoUser, $geoAction $geoLocationId"}, falseAct={"","trace","$geoUser, $geoAction $geoLocationId"}}},
     

    You should be able to see who, when and where ...

    Yes, i know what you mean. I have enabled everything for YUBII. There is nothing in Android that I can enable. Notifications, Location, Battery...everything. If there is any special setting panel in Android what I coouldnt see, please give m

    some advice where it is, becuase i scrolled through the entire phone settings like 50 time, and there is nothing more I can allo for some application.

    Maybe this problem is al related to my Android setup, i dont know, but i swear i have controlled every single setting option in my phone..There is nothing more I can do in phone settings.

    So when you go to settings-> location (Resent access)  you are able to see that Yubii has accessed the location?

  • Yes, i can see there, that Yubii accessed location 15hrs ago, its around 23:50 yesterday. At that time I was at home more than 6 hours. 

    And the scene that should start when I enter, never tirggered.

    I have found another very strange behaviour.

    If I want to track users location by calling

     

    fibaro.getValue(user_ID"Location")
     
     
    Then when I try it for admin, it give me some location in Warsawa
    when I try it for other users i am getting 0,0 always

    Yeap, Fibaro have decided not to update user location in devices anymore..

    Did you set to prevent the Yubii application from going to sleep...

    May I ask you again to try to use All-in-One QA, it should react to any user at any defined location. After that you can delete the QA.

  • I would really want to try your All-in-one-QA, but after i installed, i didnt really know what to do with it.

    Will try it again.

    I am still looking for some settings that might be badly set in my phone, but really no clue what to search for.

    Very strange, that trying to check location by IFTTT doesnt work either.

    I will try to use All-in-one QA again.

  • Okay, i did it

    Your QA has listed me, who has turned ON geofencing.

    How can i learn from this, why isn't it working?

    I am attaching the pic
