Imagine if your closed-loop system knew how to automatically adjust to your exercise setting when you arrived or left a certain location? We use this when we arrive at the ski club for my daughter to snowboard. It automagically sets her Loop system to give her less insulin for the duration of the exercise period. You could also have a higher override kick in when your child arrives at school or a lower override to walk home.
The nice thing about these shortcuts is that they don’t require an extra app and can be set both on location > arriving or leaving and a time range. So if you only want the override to kick in when you are leaving school between 2pm and 3pm but not at lunchtime that is totally customizable.
Loop version 0.10.1 or newer
iOS version 10.3 or newer
