Random Exits/Entrances
« am: 06.01.2016, 22:53:22 »
I saw on my phone this a.m. that the app updated overnight.  As my phone is sitting next to me it is randomly indicating that I have left and entered the fence....yet I have not moved.

I am noticing it is occurring when my phone indicates that it is locating GPS.

I assume the app may be picking up some sort of trigger and thinks that I left and re-entered during the timeframe of location determination via GPS.

It is not continually happening.... but has happened 4 or 5 times in the last hour.

Prior to the app update this type of thing may have happened once or twice in the last couple of weeks.

Have you used the accuracy in your zone? I removed that future in 2.0.5, but put it back with 2.0.6 and now it should work again like before.
This jumps are a problem with the Google Geofence Service which is used by the app. Like you said, it reports exits and entrances even the device is not moving.
Have you set the location to high accuracy?
Do not use a too small radius. I am using 500 meters.

I have accuracy set at 0 since I don't know how it works.  There is nothing in the Manual area of the application site to tell you how it works to let the user know what the setting does.

I have it set at 400m.  I have another app that uses geofencing as well and it provides a notice of exiting and entering the same fence area as EgiGeoZone does so I know the 400m is fairly accurate.

Let me know how to use the accuracy setting and I can give it a go...

Cheers.

You may set an accuracy which should be smaler then the radius.
So if the location is reported by the Google Geofence Service to the app, an accuracy of the location is reported also.
The app will then consider only events in which the accuracy from the app is smaler reported accuracy. This means some events will be bypassed. You have to consider this!

Example:
radius in app: 400
accuracy in app: 100

Reported accuracy when you enter/exit a zone:
- greater 100 --> events will not be executed
- smaler 100 --> events will be executed

I'll set it for 100 and see what happens.

Any plans to add ability to use the Dwell feature?  See topic - Use the dwell transition type to reduce alert spam here:  http://developer.android.com/training/location/geofencing.html

I thought about it, but I didn't see any benefit. Do you have an example for it?
