    Homekit is sending notifications when camera and door sensors are triggered when I am at home, even though it is set to send notifications anytime i am NOT at home. Does this to me and my wife's phone. I have toggled notifications on/off and toggled other options but that's about it. Have not deleted and re added devices. Any help appreciated.

    iPhone X, iOS 12.1.

    you've set up where home is?
    go to settings app -> contacts -> my info

    make sure your card is selected, and the home address is correct

    if you go to your map app of choice (google or apple) does it find you properly

    I have this issue frequently as well. My contact card appears to be correct.

    I also read to share your location...Settings > iCloud

    I had not purposely done this before a few days ago. Even after doing so, I still have the issue intermittently.

    One of my issues, I believe, is that I carry 3 phones, all tied to the same iCloud account. Maybe one or more is slow to identify me as being home? I dunno.

    on the settings page you mentioned, you select which device your location is shared from, the other 2 phones shouldn't matter.

    I've been having the same problem for the past few days as well.
    My location is correct, and shows properly on the map.

    Same here, suddenly started happening on Saturday. We are 2 people, we have set HomeKit to only send motion notifications when "nobody is home". We were both home. Needless to say, it is a new HomePod, has been doing its work for a few days and just suddenly started notifying us as if we weren't home, but we were.

    If you open up your maps app, does it show as a 'gps lock' on your address.

    I've noticed that when I get the problems, my gps is bouncing around the house.

    I'll have to check, though I don't exactly know what you mean by "gps lock".
    This never happened when either of our Apple TVs was the Home Hub. Since the HomePod, the Hub has been the HomePod. And since you can't change it manually...
