Location-aware function Apple Homekit - Apple Watch

Cupertino, October 21, 2020

With Apple changes, which now allow a family member to use an Apple Watch without having access to an iPhone, can Apple Homekit do geofencing based on the location around your home to do automation and / or scenes?

As my daughter is in high school, I don't feel comfortable having another cell phone, but I plan to get her an Apple Watch SE that is set up as a "family member." To do this, you will need to have a separate Apple ID, which is of course obvious. If she is added / invited to "home" when she arrives and / or leaves, could she trigger automations and / or location-based scenes?

A perfect example of this is when he gets home from school.
