Face up, intermediate, and face down are currently options. However, I would also like to see vertical and horizontal, please. When I put my phone in the car holder in vertical, I don't want the screen to turn off. Right now, any slight angle activates the intermediate trigger.
I was able to get a similar effect by setting the rule condition of missed call combined with incoming call of the same group of contacts.
This sounds great. The condition would be "number of missed calls > #", where you would specify how many missed calls would trigger the Loud profile. Once you clear the missed calls, the rule would no longer be active.
Since Android does not update the motion sensor information while sleeping, this option may not work reliably.
Perhaps you can set the night profile (I assume that means quiet mode) to activate while the screen is off between 23:00 and 7:00?
If I want to de-activate a rule based on a condition, like "vacation," then I just put it in the logic. Just add "where calendar event is not vacation" to the list of conditions. In my opinion, the inverse logic condition provides the necessary functionality to satisfy this request.
When I activate a rule using the "timed" option, SP does not check to see which profile should be active according to the rules when the time runs out.
For example, I activate profile 1 for 45 minutes when profile 2 is set to be active in the rules. After 45 minutes, SP goes to the default profile instead of profile 2. When I check the rules, the rule to activate profile 2 is green, but profile 2 is not active. I have to manually disable the rule and re-enable the same rule in order to activate profile 2 according to the rules.
What would happen if you answer a call, and hold the phone to your face, covering the light sensor?
When inside a building, my phone sometimes cannot be more accurate than a 2 mile radius. Thus, Setting Profiles could not distinguish between one building and another. When I'm outside, I can get the desired accuracy, however, my location based profiles tend to be inside a building.
