Android Wear 2.0 WiFi control

Post by Serum_114 » 28 Jul 2017 16:34

Hi,

I've noticed that since updating my watch to Wear 2.0, I can still use "Set WiFi State (All Wear devices): On" to turn WiFi on but "Set WiFi State (All Wear devices): Off" doesn't turn the WiFi off. NB: directing the command at a specific Wear device also doesn't work.

Hi,

Could you please try the action one more time, then open the log in Automagic and use menu->Download Android Wear Log and use menu->Send Log to send the log by mail to me so I can check what's going on.

Thanks & Regards,
Martin

Hi Martin,

I tried your suggested workaround:
Add an action 'Set System Setting (Android Wear)' to your flow directly before the action 'Set WiFi State' is used to turn WiFi off.
The action should have following settings:
Category: System
Name: clockwork_wifi_setting
Value: off

It works now! Thank you!

Hi,

Thanks for reporting and testing! I'll extend the built-in action of Automagic to use this workaround starting with the next update.

Regards,
Martin

Hi Martin,

I've had to add an exception to the flow. Once in a while, I'd get a failure on the workaround. It was rare but it happened.

Thanks again.

What kind of failure? Did it just not turn off WiFi or did you get some sort error?

I find a stop error waiting for me sometimes in the notification bar. I've never been able to reproduce the error by manually running the flow. I've removed the exception that proceeds to the next step and will post the exact verbiage of the error.
