GPS – Configuration and Scene

Description

From this article, you’ll get to know how to define geographic points which you can use together with users’ locations in Scenes. At the end of an article, you can see an example of a block scene which uses GPS. To run the scene with GPS you will need a smartphone with GPS module.

  • You can’t define geographic points on your mobile app.
  • If more than one person is using geographic points from one Home Center use multiple accounts.
  • To use geographic points you have to turn on Location on your mobile phone.

 

If you have Location turn on but it isn’t working check permissions for our app. Follow this path to do it:

  • Settings -> Apps -> Fibaro -> Permissions -> Location (for Android)
  • Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services (for iOS)

 

If you want to use location in scenes, your app has to work in the background.
