Increase geofencing distance for gate opening

Cupertino, July 27, 2023


I’m struggling to find a reliable way to open my gate automatically upon arriving home. The problem I’m facing is that while my shutters and front door open at a perfect timing - up to me parking the car to the latest within my garden - the gate needs to be opened earlier for me to park).

For it to happen I would need the geofencing of my home to be triggered earlier which I believe would need to go through a greater distance for the geofencing

The issue I encountered by defining another zone close to my home as a trigger is that the automation needs a confirmation and doesn’t run automatically.

Anyone worked that out for their case?

This is the last bit of my no key project.
