Trigger - Phone Cell GSM

The trigger Phone Cell GSM is executed when the device connects or disconnects from the defined cells. Changes within the defined list of cells don't invoke the trigger.

Warning: Some devices don't report the cell to Automagic when the screen is turned off.

 

Examples:
  • Turn WiFi on, when the device connects to one of the cells at home
Settings
Method
Whether the classic, a modern or both methods should be used to find cells. It's highly device dependent which method works best.
Trigger when
Whether the trigger should execute the flow when connected/disconnected from an area defined by a list of cells or on every cell change (can be frequent).
Location Area Code (LAC) List
A comma separated list of location area codes. A location area is set of base stations and usually covers a large area. Glob patterns (*, ?) are supported. Variables are supported.
Cell ID (CID) List
A comma separated list of cell IDs. Glob patterns (*, ?) are supported. Variables are supported.
Cell ID (CID) List to Ignore
A comma separated list of cell IDs to ignore. Glob patterns (*, ?) are supported. Variables are supported.
Connected / Disconnected
Whether the trigger should be executed when the device connects or disconnects from the listed cells. Changes within the defined list of cells don't invoke the trigger.
Wake device
Whether the trigger should wake the CPU of the device every X minutes or not. This is necessary for some devices when the cell is not updated regularly. Consumes more battery when a shorter time interval is chosen.
Turn screen on
Whether the display should be turned on briefly or not. This is necessary for some devices when the cell is not updated otherwise. This option increases battery consumption and should only be enabled when the cell is not updated otherwise.
Force update
Whether the cell update should be forced. This option increases battery consumption and should only be enabled when the cell is not updated otherwise.
A variable is a container for a value that can be used in many actions and conditions to dynamically define a part of a text.
See action Script for a description.
