Another feature request

Hi amg0,
Can it be possible to return the battery percentage when a particular IPhoneLocator device is queried from the iCloud?
Thanks,
Chris

Good idea, I created v2.45 with that feature.
it is not yet in MCV app store but you can get it directly from https://github.com/amg0/IPhoneLocator

Thanks a lot Amg0!
Works good!
Chris

Just updated the plugin. I’ll see how VeraMate displays the battery.

Edit: I guess this version is 2.45. I’ll have to wait a little longer.

Hi amg0,
And now when battery is low make announcement on Sonos, Please charge your Iphone ?

That’s easy to do… with a scene triggered by the battery level.

When i try to create the scene, i give me only 3 trigger choices:

1-A device is present or away
2-Distance goes below
3-Distance goes above

Otherwise if you use ALTUI, you can trigger through a variable watch on the battery level. On UI7, you can also set the variable watch in the startup LUA but it takes a bit more coding.

Works but after 2 or 3 hours it show Iphone battery at 0% why?

the 0% is an indication that icloud lost track of your phone. This has nothing to do with the plugin but rather the connection between your phone and either GPS satellites or internet as it needs both to update icloud. I have observed this too and I found that checking the extra polling helps decrease the frequency. It does not appear that icloud polls the phone that often either so the API sometimes gives an empty response and needs a second poll after it found the phone.
