    Lightbulb Multi-user Geofencing

    It would be nice to have the capacity for the system to have multi-user geofencing. If my wife is at home and I leave, have the lights remain on. If we both leave, have the system ask to turn off the lights (in case the kids are at home with sitter), etc...

    I was really disappointed by this as well. I bought it for automating but I guess it was made only for single people :)

    Unfortunately, there is no logic functionallity for Geofencing for multiple people using it at the same time. I will forward your concerns to our engineering department as a possible future upgrade feature for the Caseta system. Thank you for your concerns about the product and ways to make it better for our customers.

    If two users both log on using the same Caseta account, is the bridge sophisticated enough to know when one stays, then the geofencing scene is not triggered? (Assuming I am just looking at lights off when you exit area).

    No it is not that sophisticated. The event will occur regardless of whether someone else is within the radius or not.

    That's a bummer. When the wife is home and I leave, then the lights would still be triggered OFF. With the Connect Bridge coming for RR2 and HWQS, this would be something that would definitely be asked by end users using the geofencing feature. Might be worth looking into on the development side for all the systems- assuming the Connect Bridge cloud features are based upon the Smart Bridge architecture.
