Smart Actions: Why is wifi connection necessary for Locational SA?

2011-11-14, 2:43 AM

Why do we have to constantly keep our Wifi connection on thoughout the day for Locational Smart actions to work properly?


 


Why cant we have Location in Trigger and Wifi(on) in Actions since its also using our GPS location to location us and Wifi for more accurate location?

Smart Actions loves Wi-Fi, this is the best method for detecting location. GPS is typically a big battery drainer and Cell tower isnt very accurate. Nowadays, WiFi chips use very little energy to run at idle, and typically take less power to send data than 4G.
