Geofencing is a feature that uses the physical location of your mobile device to alert MyPlace when to go into “Home” or “Away” mode. Subsequently, any rules related to “Home” and “Away” mode will be affected. There is a zone established by a virtual boundary in a circle at 1/3 of a mile from your home (500 meters). A “Home” or “Away” change will trigger when your device checks in after it passes into or out of the zone.
If you are home, in “Home” mode, and you leave this zone, two things should happen: you should get an alert “Going into away mode,” and your mode should automatically change to “Away.” When you return to the zone, you should get an alert “Arrive at Home,” and your mode should change to “Home.”
Geofencing is located on the “Modes” page. You can access it from the MyPlace Home page located at the top of the menu; by default, it is set to “Home” mode. Tap the toggle at the bottom of the Modes page to turn Geofencing on. Tap “Geofencing” to set your home location.
Note: Like all applications that access device “Locations,” you may be asked to give MyPlace permission to access it. In fact, you may be prompted twice: once to enable Location access in general and once to let MyPlace have access. If you navigate to your location settings, go to: Settings > Privacy > Location Services
Geofencing on multiple devices is not yet supported. If you have two devices with Geofencing linked to your system, it will respond to the most recent event.
