    I came from a Razr Maxx and used the Smart Actions all the time. That's about the only thing I miss about the Razr. Does anybody know of an app or anything like that I could employ to do the same stuff? Most interested in automatically having the phone silent automatically during the night. I know, I know, I should just lower the volume, but I have to remember that ... and so far ... I'm not doing a good job of it.

    Check out Nights Keeper. Will do just what you're looking for, and will allow you to 'white list' calls from certain people in case of emergency.

    Or use the built in blocking mode...I believe that would accomplish what you are asking.

    llama https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kebab.Llama is what i have been using since switching from a moto phone.
    in addition to doing what you want it can use location profiles from cell tower signatures (which saves battery over gps). so in addition to setting silent at night, it can learn when you are home so it doesn't change to silent when you are still out but will change as soon as you are in the home area.
    it can also learn any area you want such as work etc to set different volumes and many other things you choose. this is very useful as you are not restrained to a time frame if you don't want to be.
    it only took me a few minutes to set it up and can learn any area based on the amount of time you tell it to learn. usually a couple hours per area is enough. setting the learn time too small could result in missed towers if you move around in the area such as work.

    hope that helps.

    Tasker is also great... The learning curve not so much...

    I'm using Llama with my new S5. I don't like it as much as the Moto Smart Actions, but it does the job.

    Under settings > Blocking mode (under personal) will turn off calls, notifications and alarms for a specified amount of time. The part I really missed from smart actions is also included: allowing certain contacts to ring through. I've been using it for a week, works like a charm.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I went with Nights Keeper. Really simple to set up and very similar to Smart Actions.
