I've got my set up to unlock with my fingerprint scanner. And it works perfectly. So I set up the location setting on it to deactivate the scanner when I'm home. This works most of the time, but then will start requiring me to scan my finger. Anyone else having this issue or know of a solution?

Do you have any Device Administrators (like corporate e-mail accounts) that might be disabling the Smart Unlock? My company, for instance, does... If I want my work e-mail on my personal phone, they enforce either Password or Fingerprint, no Smart Unlock or PINs.

Also remember that location might not be accurate so the device might be thinking you're not home. And it'll also require your fingerprint if the device hasn't been unlocked for a few hours or after you leave the house and come back.
