Time for MIOS to get Vera working properly...
Thanks for your time, nearly wasted a day over this, I wouldn't have thought that the Phone UI would have not been so different between Ios & Android.
Obviously it is, otherwise I would have picked up on your solution earlier and realised that what I proposed was not possible with a Samsung.

I have a problem that i have two fences and only the one works. And the only fence that works is where my home button is selected.
The other fence does not work. Do i forget something? Both phones are iphones 5 and 6 series.
Slowly getting tired of this problem.

Geofencing seems to take a bit to notify Vera if your phone is not connected to your local WiFi as it has to go via Vera's servers. When I leave it takes a minute or so for the notification to pop up on my watch. When I arrive sometimes it pops up just before I pull into the garage and sometimes it takes up to a minute longer.  But rarely more than that.

My Geofencing was working well until recently. Now it won't switch to House mode unless I'm actually in the house and even then it may take a few minutes. Changing the radius has no effect. I have location on my phone set to Wifi and GPS with Wifi always on. I wonder if any of the recent updates have anything to do with it?

Does anyone know how frequently the Vera app checks for the location when Geofencing is turned on?

I had this same issue.  We believe (we as in me and tech support) that my Concord 4 app was taking up a lot of Vera's time preventing proper notification of a geo fence entry or exit. 

Vera techs did something which seemed to settle everything down.  I did remove the "device" for the concord 4 panel.  Gave it a few days and re-installed from a backup.  Problem solved.  I could never get a straight answer on what exactly if anything the Tech's did on their end.  I do know my geofence is fixed.

I contacted CS about the problem with Android fences (or lack of them).


Their response was that they are aware of it, the Geo FW is a beta and they will get onto it soon.
