Thanks for the kind words about EventLoggers Jesse - I use the Google Photos integration every day for my food diary and tracking my “free” time and outings. I’m surprised that more QS’rs don’t use their phone camera as a tracking tool.
I’ve tinkered with Google Maps data but, at least in my case, I find the data it provides either isn’t very accurate (it’ll log a visit to Tim Horton’s as a trip to the adjoined gas station, for example) or at the least, it requires a lot of manual work to fill in all the “missing activities”. Here’s an example from just today…
But now that I think about it, that may be partly because I live in a fairly rural part of Canada in a small town?
I haven’t explored bluetooth beacons in any depth though I have looked at stand-alone IoT buttons . (There’s another thread on this forum that bemoans the lack of a reliable, inexpensive IoT button, btw.)
While the idea of passively tracking my location by room, etc is enticing, I’m concerned that the data might not correlate to specific events/actions which is what EventLoggers.com is all about. For example, a bluetooth button could confirm that I was in my office from 2 to 3 pm but it probably wouldn’t be able to discern whether I was working, cleaning, napping, etc.
If you have buttons that log data to an APPI endpoint though, please get in touch and maybe we can whip something up for you to see if the data would be useful. I’m curious!
