How do I set up automations based on a second home? (using Apple TV as home hub)

Cupertino, November 22, 2021

I moved from Australia to Asia, but I still have a family in Australia. I have an Apple TV there and any automation based on the presence of people who are at home works well. The problem is here in Asia. I have a second Apple TV in Asia and when I try to start an automation based on arriving at home and leaving home, the map in the Home application shows the location of the Australian house. On my contact card I have both the Australian and the Asian home address there, and the Asian home is clearly marked as home and in Apple Maps. Am I doing something wrong here? I really hate that you can't enter an address for every Apple TV and rely on Apple's "magic" to make it work, but it clearly doesn't work for me right now. I'm also hesitant to remove my Australian home address from my contact card because I don't want to upset the automations I've already set up in Australia. PS - I bought the Asian AppleTV back in Australia and installed it there (but I attributed it to the Asian house in the Home app). Would that have made a difference? Or will the Asian AppleTV finally discover that it is in Asia?
