Multiple individuals in one household

Will Mysa be able to detect if there are multiple people in a house and not cool down for the people left inside?

Yes! As long as you Share Access with all those in your household Mysa automatically will detect each user entering and exiting the geofence radius. Your thermostats will not activate the exit action until all phones have exited the geofence and will activate the Entry action once the first phone enters!

View how many people are inside or outside your geofence

You can navigate to your existing geofence at any time and check the status of all shared users. This can help you determine why the geofence may or may not be changing the status based on the users who have Entered or Exited.

To set your location within the App you can:

  1. Ensure that the Pin is in the correct location as close to your Mysa as possible.
    • You can drag and drop the pin if it is not in the correct area
  2. Additionally, you can adjust the boundary (radius) for entering and exiting your location
    • Currently, 200M is the recommended boundary. Exceeding this may result in the geofence not working correctly.

After setting your location you will be asked to set what action you would like Mysa to take when entering the geofence.

This is based on existing shortcuts within the Mysa App (see Shortcuts) these include:

  • Home
  • Away
  • Vacation

Additionally, you can select to customize your shortcuts directly from this section.

Customize Shortcuts

To do this select Customize Shortcuts, select the Shortcut you wish to adjust, and change the settings accordingly. (see Shortcuts

Updating a geofence

Joining an existing geofence

If you have been invited to share access to Mysa you also have the ability to join an existing geofence that may have been created for the shared location. This will help to ensure that the thermostats within the building do not try cooling or heating additionally while you are still in the building.

To join an existing geofence navigate to the geofence section, from here you will see the current geofence settings with the ability to 'Join' the geofence!

Manually Updating Home or Away

In the case that Mysa loses communication at any point and does not correctly update an Entry or Exit of the boundary, you can manually adjust this within the App.

To do so navigate to Geofencing, select Status

  • Select Out to override Mysa to mark you as outside the boundary.
  • Select In to override Mysa to mark you inside the boundary
