It's possible to use routines to alert when you have arrived home or left home, shame their is no Geofence option to say alert if a device leaves a perimeter.

@Obsydian: This should be possible, however you'll need to set it up at home. To achieve this, head to Settings > Advanced features > Bixby Routines > Add routine > If > Place > Select your current location > When I arrive > Done > Then > Effects > Beep once. You have some artistic license here, so you may wish to set it up to play music, or show a custom notification etc. If you set up another routine, but choose 'When I leave' when adding the location, then you should be good to go. 

EDIT: My apologies, I read your post as 'is it possible...'. As the steps could be of use to other Community members, I'll leave them in place :smiling-face:

Thanks I tried it, got the IFTT type routine, then realised why I gave up on geofencing as so late with alerts or none
