Part of the issue maybe the fact the Find My iDevice relies on reverse engineered access to the Find My iPhone service.

I don't see any issues opened in the Github repository, nor any notes about supporting the 2 factor authentication. I'll try to submit those as issues, and see if anyone has any ideas.

Re: FindMyiDevice

See the other discussion on passwords ... Many emails send from Apple and how to fix.

Haven't tried it myself, but see this thread for some details on how to avoid having Apple email you every time it connects.

Re: FindMyiDevice

When i get the notification emails it says that it's coming from an iPad. So, I'm guessing you are somehow accessing the data available through the find my iPhone app normally used on an iOS device. If so, then you might be able to leverage the new family sharing option for sharing your location. Which should bypass the notification problem.

Actually, it's a web request, from the plugin.

The header information was reverse engineered from a iPad.

I'll see what can be done, but at least for the short term, there's nothing that I can do to prevent that from happening.

Re: FindMyiDevice

Got the same problem starting last week.

I've noticed this in the event log:

Sep 26, 2014, 9:09:03 PM
Find My IDevices Manual iDevice Update Requested (from Trigger)
Find My IDevices location: {'latitude': 39.386114487461171, 'timestamp': datetime.datetime(2014, 9, 26, 21, 6, 11), 'longitude': -75.076781809399904, 'accuracy': 10.0}

The line in bold print caught my eye. So I tried disabling the plugin. Since then, no more emails about Find My iPhone. I'm guessing that Apple changed something when accessing iCloud ever since the celebrity hack took place/

Dear all,

I recently implemented apple's iCloud 2 factor authentication and FindMyiDevice has stopped working. I tried using an apple application specific password (which in effect bypasses 2 factor) and it doesn't work. If I revert back to my iCloud primary password I get 10's of emails informing me that my account has been accessed by an unrecognized device. Is anyone else experiencing the same issues or have a resolution.

Thanks, Mark

Ignore my post. Found the solution from earlier posts.

That is correct.

The Emails are not due to the 2 factor authentication.

It is simply that you have logged into iCloud. Find my iPhone requires a login to iCloud (at least via the mechanism that Find My iDevices uses), and that will cause an email to be sent.

Now, unknown to me, there has been some talk here in the forums about how to get around this.

Evidently your UDID has to be set to the same UDID of an device that you own. This makes sense, Apple is checking for a known device that you own to be accessing iCloud. The instructions are here viewtopic.php?f=33&t=12633.

I may look into integrating this into Find my iDevice. But I'm tied up on other projects at this point.
For now at least, it's an option to prevent the emails from Apple.

I just glanced, and it appears to be someone else's rewrite of the find my iPhone code.

The original code was in PHP, and then migrated to other languages (e.g. Python, ruby, etc), and now it looks like someone full-circled it, and made a different version in php.

I have newer code, which I need to sit down and look at implementing in the find my idevices plugin... I'm also considering trying to add bluetooth detection into the plugin, but it's a matter of time and energy.

I'm sorry to hear that. Can you give me some more details?

Can you post me the log file, right after reseting the FMID plugin?

Re: FindMyiDevice

I'm working on releasing an Alpha iFindStuff plugin that's designed to manage multiple iDevices and use them for tracking & geofencing. The main motivation was extending the abilities of my NEST Home plug in but I was persuaded to make the plugin standalone so it might be useful here.

I've already got an Alpha working with Family Groups, Individual Accounts and it seems to work ok... still the Alpha will tell us :D

Do you fancy helping me test?


Sure, contact me at Benjamin AT schollnick dot net, and we can talk about it.

FMID, has always been a bit of a beast to support, since it's all reverse engineered and Apple doesn't officially support it's use in this manner.

my apple id doesn't show up in the dropdown for an idevice

Using 1.715 of the plugin in Indigo 6.1.4.

I installed the plugin and created a device for my apple id. Next I created an idevice registration but nothing shows up in the drop down list for 'choose an applie id' and in the log I get this error:

Code: Select all
  Find My IDevices Error          Error in plugin execution GetUiDynamicList:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "plugin.py", line 527, in Return_List_of_iDevices_from_Apple_IDS_for_entry_screen
<type 'exceptions.KeyError'>: key AppleID not found in dict


So it seems the plugin is unaware I have created an apple id. I don't see any other errors (or other log activity for that matter). I tried doing a force update but that didn't change anything.

I've read through the old 27 page thread and didn't see anything relevant and I'm also new to Indigo so may be doing wrong but I haven't been able to figure out what. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Re: FindMyiDevice

Ben:

FMID was working for awhile but I changed my password for icloud. When I went back to alter it in the device setup, my idevice does not show up when I choose idevice registration.

There does not seem to be a variable being created. I do not remember creating one in the past. Do I need to create a variable to get it to show up under idevice registration
