Geofencing never works

Geofencing never works

I don’t know what it is but I tried everything. All my iCloud settings are configured correctly, Find My only tracks our specific phones, I tried to delete and recreate Home in HomeKit and nothing works. My goal is to do one simple thing: run a single scene when the last person leaves and when the first person arrives. And clearly the thing never starts. The scenes are Pause and Resume Thermostat. I have an ecobee and I tried to start geofencing in the ecobee app to see if that would help and I wasn’t lucky there. Right now, I’m looking for solutions, such as using another smart hub that is impeccable in recognizing this signal and having it trigger my HomeKit scenes. Any suggestions? It would also be great if this could do other non-HomeKit things, such as recognizing sunset / sunrise and helping me trigger scenes then
