Location automation on Android


Hi! I’m trying to help my less tech-savvy husband with something at work. He mentioned off-hand the other day that he wishes that his phone could automatically go silent when he enters a conference room and go back when he leaves. He said it in a way that indicated that he thought that was impossible, but I think it might be possible?? It would have to be a more discreet location than just a gps, etc, because it’s all within the hotel where he works. Rose mentioned something in one of the episodes about doing this with her phone, but is it possible on an android? He has a new Samsung. Thanks!


The technology you would want to look at is “beacons”. Maybe this thread will provide some background in regards to practical Android use?
