[quote=“ChrisTheC, post:25, topic:177230”]Hello,
Two problems I am trying to figure out on both v1.21 & v1.30 beta3 (Vera3 1.5.622)
I’m testing 3 iDevices with three separate Apple IDs. During testing, I’ve tried to delete individual devices, ex. delete “Dad’s iPhone” but leave “Mom’s iPhone” remaining. It seems that if you try to delete one device, it won’t delete. Even after reload’s & browser refreshes. You must uninstall the plugin completely, reinstall & start over. Is this the intended behavior or am I doing something wrong?
Second question: Has anyone gotten this to work with an iPad (3rd Generation)? I’ve tried multiple ways, first from scratch (remove & reinstall plugin), the plugin creates the default device (iPhoneLocator). Modify the settings as required for “Dog’s iPad” with the proper id, password, & device name on iCloud.
The iPad has never displayed location, it is always “none”. Advanced tab shows Location:none & LastUpdate:0.
I then tried another method. (Uninstall & reinstall plugin 1.30 beta3)
Add “Dad’s iPhone” modify plugin settings = Working OK
Add “Mom’s iPhone” modify plugin settings = Working OK
Add “Dog’s iPad” modify plugin settings = NOT working.
I’ve tried to press the “Refresh” button. Sometimes the locator shows up on the iPad (which could be coincidence), most times not. Either way, the device does not update. I’ve read both threads and do not remember seeing anything related to the iPad. Browsing to the iCloud link is the same “https://www.icloud.com/#find” for both iPhone & iPad.
Is there a way to test iPad?
Anyway, thanks for creating this plugin amg0.
on version > v1.30, devices are created automatically based on the content of iPhoneName parent device parameter. this is a string which controls which device you want. it does not matter if you delete them, they will be recreated again at the next time the luup engine is restarted. The iPhoneName parameter should be a comma seperated list of names you want to have.
[ul][li]"^iPhone." : all devices with names starting with iPhone[/li]
[li]".": all devices in the iCloud account[/li]
[li]“iPhone of mrX,iPad of msY” : the 2 specific devices named and nothing else[/li]
[li]"^iPhone.*,Dog’s iPad" : all devices with names starting with iPhone AND the ipad called Dog’s iPad[/li][/ul]
I have a iPad2 and it works perfectly. from the plugin standpoint, there is really no difference between iPads and iPhones, maybe check that this iPad is really enabled for location reporting in the IOS settings. one way to be sure is to use v1.30 and put ‘.*’ in iPhoneName. it will fetch and create a device for every single iDevice associated to your iCloud account which is enabled for location tracking
Hope this helps
