As already said in this article, the camera wake-up feature can have a quite erratic behavior with some devices and some android version.
Here is an alternative method to achieve quite the same result, using 1 great third party app :
- Motion Detector : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.motion.detector
Here is how to use them :
1 - Turn OFF the 'Wakeup with camera' option in ImperiHome :
Preferences => Dashboards settings => Wake up with camera : Disabled
2 - Install & Configure Motion Detector
Install from this link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.motion.detector
Launch the app
- go to the settings and set it to look at the front camera :
- back to the app, enable the "SEND" switch from the Notification section :
- And tap the Detector button to enable the motion detection :
You're set !
When in dashboard screensaver mode, your phone/tablet will wake-up as soon as it detects motion with the front camera.
