Cell tower near
A decision block that checks nearby cellular towers.
If the proceed option is set to Immediately,
then check if any of the cell towers is currently nearby without pausing the fiber.
If set to When changed, then the fiber will pause until the device comes near any of the cell towers, or until none of the towers is nearby.
If no cell towers are supplied, the nearby cell towers are collected/scanned and assigned to the
nearby cell towers variable without a (intersection) check, proceeding through the YES path.
The cell towers input argument can be a single cell,
a text of comma separated cells, an array of single cells
or a dictionary where each key is a single cell.
The arrays assigned to Nearby cell towers
and Signal strengths are of equal length, sorted in signal strength order.
Note! Finding nearby cells will be slow for devices (Samsung) that doesn’t report neighboring, unconnected, cell towers.
Some devices only report cells when the screen is lit, use the Device keep awake block
to keep the screen on continuously, or at regular intervals.
Note! Android 6+ devices may require that system Location setting is enabled.
A cell is text that begins with a network type followed by one or more optional hexadecimal properties separated by colon:
- Proceed — when the fiber should proceed.
- Cell towers — cells to check if they’re nearby or not.
- Nearby cell towers — variable to assign an array of nearby cells.
