no motion sensor trigger in smart actions?

2012-02-21, 21:14 PM

 I was googling around the interwebs to find out more recommendations for smart actions rule settings, and I noticed some references to a motion sensor trigger (for example, in the BGR review of the Droid Razr Maxx).  I don't seem to have that trigger in the version of smart actions on my new Droid 4, though?  Is that a hardware sensor limitation?  Or do I need to change a setting somewhere to make that trigger come up in the list?

Droid 4 doesn't have the hardware to enable the motion detector trigger.

hi,


I am assuming that the current motion detector feature uses the gyroscope to detect motion. I was wondering if in the future the motion detector feature can be made to work with an accelerometer? I believe all smartphones have accelerometers in them and I feel like the motion detector feature is one of the best ability of smartactions especially for saving battery life. While an accelerometer may not be as accurate as the gyroscope that is in the droid razr maxx, wouldn't it detect enough motion to work a motion detect for when someone is actively uses the phone as least?

Hi Money,


I'm asking someone on our team that knows more about motion detector than I. Should have an answer soon.
