IFTTT and Life360 End of Lifed

Hi All,

Just received this email from IFTTT - Slightly annoying as I've just subscribed to their Pro tier so it seems they waited before sending notification!

On December 2, 2020, the Life360 service will be removed from IFTTT because the Life360 team no longer supports the service.
For alternative services, take a look at other smart hub & systems services on IFTTT.

I've been using Life360 for location updates and to control variables for when me and/or my wife are home.
Life360 had some great features like triggering when the first person enters or last person leaves a location, which was great for setting a 'somebody's home' variable.

Is there an alternative that can do something similar?

Life360 has been rock solid for me for the last 5 years or so, I'd rather not lose something so reliable

I personally use HomeKit Bridge and have it setup with triggers for geolocation to activate virtual devices and action groups in Indigo. Works perfectly.. I have it set to turn on the kettle when I’m driving down the road to my house

Ah of course!

I've tried to set this but am running into an issue, I'm sure it's me doing something wrong.

I've created 1 Virtual On/Off Device
On activates a 'Home' Action Group, which just sets a variable I'm using to 'Home'
Off activates a 'Away' Action Group, which just sets that variable to 'Away'

I've added the On/Off Device to Indigo as a switch device.

Then in the Home App I tap to switch my location On/off, but in Indigo the device only ever switches on - never off:
Action Group Pete Home
Virtual Devices sent "Pete Location" on
Action Group Pete Home
Virtual Devices sent "Pete Location" on
Action Group Pete Home
Virtual Devices sent "Pete Location" on

Where have I buggered up? :)

I've created a plugin https://www.indigodomo.com/pluginstore/256/that you can try for Life360
