I have installed companion app in my wife and kid android phone. They have one dedicated tab available with basic info, and I use their phone to track the places (for my kid) and if they are home (with sensors)
I have noticed that sometimes - especially if their phone drop battery below 15% (which is happening quite often) companion app stops reporting. Most of the time I have to open their app in order to start working again.
is there any kind of automation that could help or a way to wake app companion app?
