Mobile App: iOS device_tracker not showing up

#1

Hey there,

i am using the latest hass.io release and the latest beta of the new mobile App (2.0.0 (58)). I have mobile_app: and zero_conf: in my config-file and also connected the App with my hass.io installation. Most things work fine. I also have new services for notify.mobile_app_tims_iphone which is working fine. But I am not able to get the device tracker working. I have [sensor.geocoded_location_13] which is updating, but no device_tracker component is created.
I set up an empty known_devices.yaml file, before installing the app but no new device is created. Auto-Discovery is turned on.

I hope someone is able to help me.

Are you sure track is set to true? in your known_devices.yaml?

#3

The device is not showing up in the known_devices.yaml file. I have connected the App multiple times, but it does not appear.

#4

Okay, go through these instructions to reset the app entirely and go through onboarding again which will create the device_tracker. BTW, before you do that, make sure you don’t actually have the device_tracker. It has a crazy random name right now, like device_tracker.dfas8asm348 or something.

#5

I followed the instructions, deleted everything and reinstalled the beta App (2.0.0 (58)) from Testflight, but no device_tracker entity was created.

This is my configuration.yaml

Do you have any device_tracker entries at all?

#7

no, i don’t have any device_tracker entries

i just activated an empty device_tracker: component in configuration.yaml and repeated the steps, but it did not work

#8

I had the same problem, I solved it by uninstalling the beta app and then reinstalling again which is the last step of the cleaning between builds…
Tracker has a long name and is the UDID of the iphone

#9

It did the above steps sseveral times, but nothing changed. The sensor.geocoded_location is updating but no device_entity is created.
I tried it with an iPad and my iPhone but neither of it worked.

No advices?
