Track device is not working?


I was tracking the device using locative and currently switched to iosApp. I see that status is changing correctly, but the automation is not working.
I triggering it by using

  - platform: state
    entity_id: device_tracker.myphone
    from: 'work'
    to: 'not_home'

Is it a correct way to use it? Is it requires ios_ preffix like device_tracker.ios_myphone?


Yes it should be ios_name_iPhone.

Its the Device_ID that’s in the ios app under settings.

Yes, but in the app my device it is “myphone”
Please confirm I should use device_tracker.ios_myphone ?

You should use the name the device tracker actually has. Look in dev tools. I don’t have an ios before my device.

ok, that makes sense. actually i found that probably my script used in automation still wasn’t updated to use ios device tracking instead of locative.
