Need help configuring proximity via icloud

Hi all,

first of all, I’m just starting with HA, so please excuse me if I missed some documentation/post about this:

We only have iPhones and MacBooks at home, so I was trying to create proximity notifications where HA pulls location data via iCloud (not via HA App - this way people cannot cheat by deleting the app).

For example, my wife went shopping, took her iPhone with her (device_tracker.wife_iphone shows away), but person.wife is at home). The following devices are connected to her person:

- device_tracker.wife_iphone
- device_tracker.wife_ipad
- device_tracker.wife_macbook

is this something I did not configure correctly? Is there a way to set if one devices is not at home, person is also not at home


I didn’t configure persons myself, but looking at the documentation ( it looks like this is intended behaviour:

You just left home. ‘tracker_gps’ shows status ‘not_home’, but the other two trackers show status ‘home’ (they may not have yet updated due to their ‘consider_home’ setting see device_tracker). Since the stationary trackers have priority, you are considered ‘home’.

I saw that, but, for me at least, it’s a bit confusing, as I do not use an external device_tracker (I get the data from iCloud). The thing is, I have no Idea what to configure, and where…

I was looking at this page, but did not get any smarter. I should config. it like this

  - platform: netgear
    host: IP_ADDRESS
    username: YOUR_USERNAME
    password: YOUR_PASSWORD
      track_new_devices: true

but I am not using any platform, or is iCloud considered a platform?
