GeoFencing
« on: May 04, 2014, 03:38:22 pm »
Looks like iPhone and Android now have Goefencing.  Any plans to bring Geofencing to the Windows Phone platform?

i.e. When phone is in X radius of home ..something can happen (like setting a virtual switch active). 

Just another one of many feature suggestions.  I understand it not may be on the roadmap...and if it is...may take a while.

I'll definitely look into that when phone 8.1 is officially released. Currently i do track the change of your network connection and then try to resolve the best url to use.  Thats my poor mans solution for simple stuff.  :-)

Any more thoughts on this?  I believe 8.1 supports this now.

WiFi would be the best start (and handy if you can link your phone to a Virtual Switch).  This would meet my immediate need.

Obviously, a GPS like "near home" radius geofence would also be awesome addition too.

Do you use ping sensor or seen the DDWRT thread on setting your router up to check for your phones mac address. The router then switches a virtual switch.

Ping sensor also has a long thread and vera pings your phones local IP address for when its connected to your home network and also switches a virtual switch.

Those 2 could get your going for now while windows phones slowly die off get better apps and support.

The geofencing is on my to-do list to research in the 8.1 client i'm working on
