You can stand at the center place in your home to check the right direction of every area. If you stand outside the main door, it'll tell you the opposite direction, example, if your door is facing east, and you are standing outside the door than your phone is facing the west direction and it'll not be the correct.
If you stand inside, in the center, it'll give you the right direction.
