Hi all,
Since updating to iOS 13, all my HomeKit automations which require geofencing, ie turning on and off lights, stopped working. I am using an Apple TV as a hub and everything is updated to the last version.

Is anybody else experiencing this?

Cheers,
Fatih

I’ve always found HomeKit to be more reliable when my HomePod is the hub. All of my Geo fencing works perfectly. Could you perhaps change devices? I’m not saying it shouldn’t work with the Apple TV, I’m just saying that it works better for me with the HomePod.

My only geo location service I use is for Arlo. Today currently, geo-fencing seems to be fouled up, yet again. I think it‘s just that app. Don’t use geo-fencing anywhere else.

Interestingly, if I choose Home from the locations, it doesn’t show a radius but if I choose an address, it shows the radius. Just weird
