Geofency Device Tracker


This platform allows you to detect presence using Geofency.

You must have the Geofency component configured to use this device tracker.

Geofency will automatically generate the device tracker name used for geofences, and you will find it in known_devices.yaml after the first request. For beacons, the device name will be beacon_<name from Geofency>, e.g., device_tracker.beacon_car.

When you enter a geofence or stationary beacon, your location name in Home Assistant will be set to the name of the geofence or beacon location in Geofency. When you exit a geofence or stationary beacon, your location name in Home Assistant will be set to ‘not home’. For mobile beacons, the location name will be ‘not_home’ whenever the beacon is entered or exited outside of a zone, otherwise, it will be set to the name of the zone.

To make Geofency work better with the proximity component, you should enable the ‘Send Current Location’ feature in the Webhook configuration screen. This ensures that the current GPS coordinates are included in exit events instead of the coordinates of the (center of) the zone that was exited.
