This publication describes methods of creating local relative geofences for Ultra-Wide Band-enabled (UWB-enabled) computing devices that facilitate the position of such UWB-enabled devices to be determined relative to a defined boundary (e.g., geofence). In aspects, a first UWB-enabled computing device (primary device) receives information defining a geofence from a user, utilizes UWB to determine the location of a second UWB-enabled device (secondary device), determines if the secondary device is located within the geofence, and generates a notification for the user responsive to determining that the second device has moved to a position outside of the geofence.
