    Smart Actions Question

    I'm trying to set up a smart action using my location (home) as the trigger and I'm trying to get it to turn Wifi on when I"m only at this location. For some reason I can set the trigger no problem but when I go to select Wifi in actions it's greyed out and I can't select it. What's going on here? It's driving me nuts.

    Thanks in advance

    Smart Actions requires WIFI to be ON in order to use Location for a trigger. Since you are trying to use Location to tell it to turn ON WIFI, it's a catch 22. This is why you can't select Location for a trigger AND WIFI on for an action. This is an anomaly of the Smart Actions Location trigger, and at this point there is no workaround using Smart Actions.

    There is however a workaround that accomplishes the same goal. What you need to do is download and install Verizon WIFI Auto-on. Once installed run it and set your home location as a point where WIFI is to be triggered on. When you arrive at home, Verizon WIFI Auto-on will turn WIFI on, and when you leave again, it will turn it off.
