Ever since Life360 departed the scene, my location-based routines are not working reliably. I converted everything to use IFTTT Location, including creating an IFTTT account for my spouse. I have about a 1 mile radius set on my home location, and IFTTT still cannot get my porch light turned on before I get to the door; it works about 20% of the time. I have an IFTTT Pro account, and I usually get a location change at some point in time for each departure/arrival, just not very timely. My spouse has a std IFTTT account and we can go days with her coming and going, and not see a single change in location from IFTTT.
Wi-Fi router connections will not work for me. By the time the router sees me, I am already in the house. The location “fence” is not far enough out to do me any good.
Have you guys considered approaching Life360 to get direct access, similar to what you did with Tuya? They apparently have no love lost for IFTTT, so maybe you can work something out?
Any other ideas?
