So I have my wife's iPad setup as the home hub. Setup automation for leaving and returning. My question is how do I see/set the geofence parameters? How do I know how far away I Have to be from my home?

Yes thank you! I was looking for where you can define the geofence parameters
[doublepost=1517959045][/doublepost]What is happening with me is that when I attempt to set up a geofence automation, the default location is "Home", but I cannot define a radios from the "Home" location like I am able to do with any other location. If I put in my full address for the location, I can define a radius. However, I do not want an automation entitled "When I leave ... my address" instead of "When I leave Home." I this a bug or am I missing something? I

Has anyone got an answer to this? It appears that in the current version of homekit a radius can only be defined when a full address is entered. Simply using home does not allow a radius to be defined.
