Does the automatic pro adapter function with gps location fencing? For instance I would like to have my a/c or heat turn on 15 miles from home... and if so how do I do this?

One of the touted it features of the new adapter Pro is that it doesn't require a cell phone, and I have found my cell phone location is somewhat unreliable when it comes to IFTTT (has to be running in the backgroond) for it to determine my distance from home... is this a feature that is technically possible and just not available yet?


iVe owned version 1,2 and now the Pro and have just given the other units to friends or family members when I upgraded... I remember when the first unit came out, it got bad reviews the app sucked and it was a constant work in progress... But you eventually got it right and it was a huge success ... I hope the same plans are in the works for this one

Yes, this is in the works! And yes, as I understand it from the engineer I just talked to, it will use the adapter itself for the geofencing trigger. 

I think you'll be happily surprised at the rate of development on the new product. The app was built from the ground-up and done in a way that makes it much easier for our product team to iterate, evolve and refine quickly. 

Thanks for all your support and for being a loyal Automatic customer!

I just purchased the Automatic Pro. I also want geofencing and IFTTT compatibility.  I currently setup the PRO and Abode, so that when my car turns on my home alarm is armed and when I shut it off, it disarms the alarm. So it happens even when I am not home! It needs geofencing so that it works only when I am not home.  Thanks!
