Two Mobile Device, Map Trigger


I have a project with map trigger widget. Widget connected to V7 pin. I enabled gps.

Question: I logged in with my blynk account on two android phones. I am controlling my home automation with these devices but map trigger is not working. I guess two device is not suitable for this or i am missing something.Any idea?

When logging into same project, each phone will be trying to control/utilise the trigger… I have no idea if/how to isolate one phone short of disabling its GPS from Blynk App

I turned off one phones location services but got same result. If i turn off location services in one device, can i get gps values from another phone to device?
Simple turn on/off button for location services for blynk app may be useful.

P.s. i want to control my security system with gps so i need this feature on two devicew

There is no way that I am aware of to make the project determine which phone is which. I think I recall Pavel doing something but not sure if there was any specifics.

Ok. I will work on it. if i found a solution, i can compile all of it.

Thank you for yor attention.

I do it with IFTTT Location + Maker Channel to Blynk.

  • Person A sends IFTTT trigger to V0
  • Person B sends IFTTT trigger to V1

Then on the hardware I can compare and, for example, decide if I should arm/disarm the motion detection alarm.

I solved that with ifttt. First it did not worked but i disabled battery saver to work gps services on background.

It works great now. Topic can be marked as solved. Thanks for your help

@yilmazyurdakul Well, I am glad you figured it out :stuck_out_tongue: I have never used IFTTT so not a clue how you solved it :blush:

Is IFTTT location + Maker Channel some form of App installed on each phone to send different signals to the sketch?? Googling it seems to indicate a website as a channel for… well, makers, so not sure that is the correct search parameter. I think I need to read much more on this :thinking:

I am working on a big tutorial about all of my peoject but i cant find enouhj time to finish. I am a teacher :slight_smile:

Each phone has ifttt app and individal ifttt account. First phone sends value to virtual pin 6, second pin sends value to 7. I get that values and using ‘or’ function in if cycle.

Also i am using cortana first device, google assistant on second device. I will share all my codes, circuits and mistakes

Thank you for your attention
