Photon Q: Location Triggers Don’t Work Very Well

2012-10-15, 14:24 PM


I have a Smart Action setup for work using a location trigger.  Sometimes it works but often it doesn’t.  As I’m typing this Google Maps and Google Earth can both pinpoint me but Smart Actions thinks I’m a mile away.



Last week one day it was working fine while at work but didn’t turn off until I was almost home (I live about 7 miles from work).



There are some things I’ve wondered about location triggers:



How often does it check for a change in location?  Is it continuous?  If not, how often does it check?  Are we talking minutes or tens of minutes?



When using an address for a location does it use a range around that address?  If so, how large of an area?  Would it be possible to make this configurable in the future?



I see that a lot of people have mixed results with location triggers on different phones.  I hope the bugs can be worked out as I think this is a great feature.
