Before you set up your Notion bridge, the mobile app will prompt you to turn on location services. The app needs to check the location of your home so that it can know when to switch between home and away mode.
(Need a reminder about why home and away mode is important? Check out our article on notification preferences here).
Location services is a requirement for setting up your system, but after that it is up to you if you want to leave it on or not. You are welcome to turn it off either for your entire phone or just for the Notion app after everything is set up.
If you do turn location services off, your Notion system will no longer switch between home and away modes on its own. If you want to take advantage of different alert settings when you are home or away, you will need to manually switch the mode in the app. From the home screen, click your home or away status in the upper right hand corner. Then click "At Home" or "Away" depending on your new location.
