Vera Mobile Geo Fence
« on: July 08, 2015, 09:41:05 pm »
It seems the Geo Fence in the latest revised android app is not usable. The previous version was not perfect but this is a big step back for me.   Even if the radius is set to 400 m it changes from enter to exit every few minutes while the phone is in the same inside location.  Phone is set to high accuracy mode.  I notice that if I open the app is will seem to put the mode back to home if it is away.

Any thoughts?

Latest play store version or the latest beta version? They fixed some issues with Geofencing in the latest beta. I have mine set to 100m radius with 50m accuracy and so far I've only seen it freak out once. I'm actually not sure if that was the app or the GPS in my phone. It was laying on the charger  and all of a sudden notifications started flying : home: exit, home : enter etc. The sounds of that is  what alerted me to something being up.

I picked it up and under my modes went to the map and enlarged it. I could see the GPS dot jumping all over the place. In and out of my radius. It stopped after about a minute or two and the dot settled where it was supposed to be. I have not seen that behavior again since.

I am running the latest version in the Play Store.  I did not realize they were still updating the Beta after they rolled out the improved version to  the Play Store.

I joined the group, I suppose I am missing something obvious, but how do I get the beta download?

Once you are approved (doesn't take long) when you go to the play store, Google will present you with the beta instead of the production version. When the beta is updated, it'll get the updates. Wait about a day and then check the play store...
