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 anytime 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.
Navigate to Geofencing

Setting up Geofencing
Proceed through the getting started steps and be sure to 'Always Allow' location as Mysa needs this to send location updates from your App to the Thermostat.
Select Setup Geofence to create a geofence for your home and the Mysa within
To set you location within the app you can:
- 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
- Additionally, you can adjust the boundary (radius) for entering and exiting your location
- Currently, 150M is the recommended boundary exceeding this may result in the geofence not working correctly.
After setting you 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:
