Locative


Locative is no longer under active development. See https://blog.locative.io/bye-everyone-df01871fe949

This platform allows you to detect presence using Locative. Locative is an open source app for iOS and Android that allows users to set up a GET or POST request when a geofence is entered or exited. This can be configured with Home Assistant to update your location.

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

When you enter a geofence, your location name in Home Assistant will be set to the name of the geofence in Locative. When you exit a geofence, your location name in Home Assistant will be set to “not home”.

To use Locative in combination with another device tracker, such as Nmap or Netgear, fill in the mac field to the Locative entry in known_devices.yaml with the MAC address of the device you want to track. The state of the device will be determined by the source that reported last.
