Movement Detection

Movement Detection




Movement Detection is an add-on app for Tasker or Locale, which lets you detect various types of motion, such as driving in a car, riding a bicycle, or walking - or when NOT doing any one of those things. You can make sure that your "Work" settings aren't triggered until you have stopped driving, or enable Bluetooth & disable Wi-Fi while you are riding in a car.

Please note: this is a plug-in. You MUST have either Locale or Tasker installed for this to work. It is built as a plug-in for either of these, and will never function on its own. If you don't understand what Locale or Tasker are, then please do not install this plug-in. Please do not accuse me of scamming or misleading; I've made this as clear as I know how.



Detected movements: in a moving vehicle, on a bicycle, walking/running, and standing still (i.e., not doing any of those other movements).



Tasker Users: To use: go to Profiles, and add a "State" condition. Within the pop-up that appears, you will see a button labeled "Plugin." Tap that, and you will see "Movement Detection."



Technical Note: If the Location Mode is set to "Device Only", Movement Detection will not work. "High Accuracy" and "Battery Saving", however, will work fine.

Great plugin and amazing dev I had trouble updating to the full version after trying out the trial version for a while. I emailed the dev and he responded very quickly! He gave me some tips, I still couldn't get it to work (lack of know-how on my end), so I emailed him again and he answered and told me exactly how to do it. Now it works flawlessly!! Thank you for the awesome customevr support! And yes, the plugin works like a charm! :-)

Sometimes, not working. Nice, but sometimes it won't work. My GPS is already calibrated. Maybe I should try out the lower confidence!

NOT TRUSTABLE. Keeps trying to go online. It keeps connecting to the internet in the background for no reason. Not safe. Look elsewhere.

Very useful and reliable I use this plugin to control Tasker profiles to log my location periodically, but only when there's a good chance that it has changed (i.e. moving). I've found the plugin to be very reliable and easy to use. Worth paying for. Nice work dev.

Great, but poorly documented How does the %movement VAR work? Is it a boolean flag? I can't exactly test it out while driving. edit - Thanks! And is it set to null when no movement is detected? or is the variable uninitialized?
