    Default Turning on Wifi based on location

    Is there a way to set up wifi so that it turns on when I am at a known location (like home) and then turn off (mobile data only) when I am not there? Sort of like the feature in Juice Defender?

    I think Tasker will do that for you.

    AutomateIt Pro can do that also.

    I was hoping to do this without a 3rd party app, and without rooting.

    WiFi Auto On works the best for me. Tasker was not reliable for me.

    You're going to need a 3rd party app.

    I'd suggest getting some NFC tags. I use them all the time.

    I have one at the front door to my house that I scan and turns wifi on when I get home, scan the same tag, it shuts it off when I leave.

    I have one next to my bed that shuts my notifications off when I go to bed, and one at work that puts my phone on vibrate when I arrive.
