Mobile app presence detection has become erratic since yesterday

I'm using the Android app. Since yesterday, the app shows me as being "present", unless I manually send a geo event.

Background/unrestricted data is enabled for the app

The app has location permission enabled all the time

Physical activity is enabled - whatever that does

Nothing has changed on my phone since yesterday. In the screenshot above - my Alexa Presence and Life360 Presence are also phone-geofencing dependent, and they continue to work. And I haven't installed any new apps on my phone. Several apps were updated during that time, but I don't believe the Hubitat app was one of them.

What should I try? Delete app data & cache? Remove/re-install?


Try going into the device on the hub and click away, see if it updates tile?

I haven't noticed any problems recently, but after reading your post, I looked at the Debug Information in the mobile app and saw several errors for yesterday and this morning. There was always a successful geofence api posting within 10 seconds of an error, so maybe that's why I hadn't noticed.

Do you see anything odd in the Debug Info?

I've seen the errors since I move over ( few weeks), sent a screenshot to HE support but not had anything back.
Mine works fine

As we get older it is often hard to tell if we are present or not. My better half often needs to nudge me to see if I am still awake. :wink:


FYI - this resolved after a reboot. Back to working perfectly again!

Do you know if that works on a personal level. I sure could use a good reboot. :wink:
