Trigger an action by GPS location from smartphone?


First of all: Great product. :heartbeat: I’m using n8n for a few days on my raspberry pi and I’m loving it.

Is there a solution like IFTTT to trigger an action by the GPS coordinates from a smartphone (iOS)? Is there any third party app, which could deliver this data to n8n?


Hey @Jonathan_English!

You can use Pushcut to trigger actions by GPS coordinates. If there’s any other app that allows making an HTTP request based on GPS coordinates you can connect it with the Webhook node.

Thanks for the fast response! I will try this.

Hey @Jonathan_English! You can also use the Shortcuts app. It allows you to create location based triggers.

And then you can make a request to a Webhook node which can trigger a workflow. I haven’t tried this out myself yet, but in case you face any issues, let me know and I’d be happy to help :slight_smile:

Thanks for the advice. I have no experience with Apple Shortcuts, but I will check this out.
