I have had a whirlwind introduction to Home Assistant and it’s been a great few weeks. I can see how I’m going to build my home around this wonderful piece of software and have also signed up to the Cloud service which has made Google Home integration and absolute breeze.
I have an issue however with the data collected from my iPhone. The data seems to be collected on first install of the app but is then never updated.
There is a field called ‘Last update trigger’ which is sitting on Initial still after 2 weeks now. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and that doesn’t fix the issue.
The location seems to update ok - in that I am able to see my live location on the map (checker that last night while I was at my sister in laws house) but everything else doesn’t. Still showing my steps, battery life et al etc from the first install.
Am I missing some crucial step to force the data to be updated? I have checked that the app has all the access to the phone that it requires and also has permanent access to the device location.
What I am after here is giving HA as much data as possible from my phone to drive through tea about what I can do / trigger with that data so I’d like it to be as ‘Live’ as I can make it (ie if I dock the phone on the charger I’d like the data to update instantly etc).
Would also be interested in any other integration apps for the iPhone that are out there if anyone has any recommendations.
Thanks and nice to be part of another thriving community!!
