With OwnTracks stopping using ibeacons on Android, I have started to look to new ways of tracking when we arrive home. I did try “monitor” by andrew j freyer and I thought this was my golden ticket, but I cannot get any of my android phones to advertise, therefore trigger an arrival message.
So I found Beacon MQTT, which hasn’t been updated for a year and appears to hammer my battery when I changes the settings to make is usable, i.e. trigger automations (send a mqtt arrival to “monitor” BEFORE I walk in the front door.
Does anyone else have a decent solution to this please? it is driving me crazy
The Netgear Orbis I have are detected well outside oh my house, but they take a good few minutes to pick up the wifi and then be detected within HA…
