I am looking for some help solving an issue with proximity automation. I’ve read all the literature I could find on this topic but have not been able to solve the issue.
- iPhone 6S Plus, Simple Control app is NOT always open, location services set to always, background refresh on
- iPad Air 2, never locked, screen always on, Simple Control app IS always open, location services set to always, background refresh on
- Lutron Caseta Smart Bridge Pro, dimmers, switches
Turn on lights when the iPhone enters the range of the iPad when the Simple Control app is NOT running in the foreground of the iPhone, but IS running in the foreground of the iPad.
The proximity automation works perfectly as long as the Simple Control app is running in the foreground on my iPhone; however, it does not work when the Simple Control app is not running in the foreground. I have tried every permutation of settings I can think of, and I even see the geofence icon for Simple Control on my iPhone when the Simple Control app is not open, but it’s unclear what it’s doing.
