Zone Notification (from "home") Not Working

Hello All -

I’m a Vera convert trying to slowly get my arms around HAAS as I believe this could be my new home (coupled with MSR).

I’m testing out Zones to find out how well HAAS will do with presence detection. I have to say that I’m impressed. It’s much more accurate than Vera and other plugins I’ve tried.

That said, I’m having issues with using the Zone Notification Blueprint (/config/blueprints/automation/homeassistant/notify_leaving_zone.yaml) when leaving my “Home Zone”. I’ve verified that it works from other Zones, however, such as one I have setup for Work. I read another thread with someone having this issue but no resolution.

Note I have a zone ring around my home for 2 miles in addition to the home zone. This will eventually trigger pre-arrival events, etc. Could it be confilcting?

  platform: state
  entity_id: person.travis_bully

  person_entity: person.travis_bully
  person_name: '{{ states[person_entity].name }}'
  condition: template
  value_template: >-
    {{ trigger.from_state.state == zone_state and trigger.to_state.state !=
    zone_state }}
