    Sweet! We had a snow storm today so I could not test if when I left home things came on I was hoping this might be the case!

    If your home WiFi is the only Location trigger, then simply unplugging your WiFi (Router?) should do the trick for a quick test.

    Just received Jelly Bean update 4.1.2 (Verizon). The update broke the SmartActions "Play music" action. It ALWAYS shows the following message: "No playlists found. You can add and manage playlists from most music player apps downloadable from the Google Play Store." (see attached picture). I used the pre-installed Google app "Play Music" to generate a playlist but SmartActions cannot find it. I've downloaded several music manager apps and generated playlists from each. Still, SmartActions "Play music" action cannot find the playlists and displays the error message. I talked to Verizon's level 2 tech support and they could not find a solution or even a workaround. Verizon would not even try to reproduce the problem on an actual phone. They did, however give me Motorola's tech support phone number to call. The tech I contacted at Motorola was sharp :hail:. He rounded up a Droid Razr Maxx (same as mine) which had the new release on it and tried it. He was able to reproduce my results within 20 minutes, as compared to Verizon's 2+ hours with no results. Bottom line: Motorola is now aware of the issue and is working to find a solution/workaround. Will post whatever Motorola comes up with.

    I really like the Smart Actions. I use a work rule to make sure that my ringer is turned down low, and a home rule to turn it all the way back up (because I always forget when I leave work). I noticed a pretty severe battery drain when I started using them though. I turned them off last week to confirm my suspicions and sure enough my battery life is a lot better. So as long as you're ok with less battery life, keep using them.

    I just checked the Smart actions in the Play market, and there are several issues people are having ever since the JB update came out. This is why I think I'm going to still wait to update my Maxx to JB.

    I hope they correct this soon.

    I used this function on the original maxx and RAZR maxx HD. With this new Droid maxx, is there something similar? I had a sleep action which would come at a set time. I miss the Smart Actions function.

    Yes. Look for an app named assist.

    Tasker is another option. It's working logic is a little weird, but only if you want to get really technical.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.
