    I set a trigger for my work location with an action to connect to the wifi and to disable cellular.
    Works flawless so far as i arrive on location. The problem is leaving. I would figure once leaving to location it would reverse the actions, but it doesn't turn cellular back on.
    Do i need to set up another location a block or so out of the locations radius? Is there a way to make the radius smaller?

    I probably end up just changing it to turn off when connected to that particular wifi, but still would like to know the above mentioned questions ...(for future reference)

    I don't know of any way to make the radius smaller. I have a smart actions for work that turns on when connected to wifi too. It took mine about 2 blocks to not be able to connect and turn off the smart actions. I have the mine set to vibrate at work but when I leave it stays on vibrate (which I don't want) . You could make a smart action for a timeframe of when you get off work or make a basic smart action that will only have to sense motion to turn your other actions on

    I just removed the location trigger and triggered it when connected to our works domain. Now if i walk out of the wifi it switches cellular back on. Working great!

    Another SA I use at night(or anytime) when I plug into charger, notification sounds are set off. Then i made a VIP allowing only my wife and kids' notification to alert me ICE (I sleep days alot don't wanna be disturbed )

    Using location for the trigger is not nearly as successful for me as using the WIFI. For those who don't want to keep WIFI on, download and install Verizon WIFI Auto On. Set up locations to trigger WIFI on, such as work, home, your favorite coffee shop, etc. Then you can use the WIFI connection as the location trigger for Smart Actions. This works great for me since I don't have to keep WIFI on and drain the battery. As I arrive in a known WIFI hotspot, the Verizon app turns WIFI on, then Smart Actions takes over. When I leave, the Verizon app turns off WIFI, and Smart Actions then responds by reversing the actions it took.

    How do you set this up so that only the notification sounds are turned off? I only see the option to turn down the ringer volume, which when my mother was sent to the hospital a couple of months ago in the middle of the night, I decided I did not want to do anymore since I missed that phone call. But I don't want to be awakened by email notifications during the night. So as of now, every night I turn off notification sounds only....but I am doing this manually.

    I think I figured it out. Use the silent ringer mode but give VIP status to my family members.
