  • The trouble with managing our connections on Android is that we have to keep coming back to them for activating or deactivating certain services to preserve battery life. In case of WiFi it is the same thing and while some apps would automatically act based on certain aspects, most of the time it comes to manually having to handle it.


    For managing your WiFi connection you have a lot of solutions available. One of the most popular and easy methods is placing a widget on one of the homescreens to quickly turn on and off the network connection. Another method that works good is using the manufacturer provided shortcuts in the notifications tray, also found on Android 4.2. Finally there is the solution we’re about to show you and it involves using and setting up just one app. You will find that this works best as once you have adjusted the options you will not have to worry about turning on or off WiFi ever again.

    Sentry by Aaron Dimet was made so that users could forget about having to worry about activating or deactivating WiFi whenever needed. Take for example when you leave home and have to deactivate the wireless connection for not to drain your battery. In this case Serenity acts by turning the connection automatically off then starts polling at certain definable intervals to find another compatible network. When you get home you will find that it’s just a matter of seconds before the app reacts and turns the connection on. The settings menu will allow you to start the app at reboot, set the time between scans and other specific features.


    Sentry is offered in both a free, ad supported version and a purchasable variant at a very good price.
