  • Blessing Dragon commented,

    Steevio, do you actually mean a shortcut? Or do you mean giving the request to Siri for the Home app?  I can report that geofencing within the Home app works the same as a geofence automation withi...

    Steevio     SMS? Simple Messaging Service? Only place I get the “Not possible…” is when I try to run the shortcut SC creates.
