I use an app called Y5 Battery Saver. Not sure exactly how it works, possibly with cell tower location services. Once you install the app, you just turn it on and have it connect to Wifi the first time and then it remembers the location automatically. Does not use GPS. So, once it's set up, I walk in the door at home and it turns Wifi on automatically and when I leave my house, it turns it off and switches to 3G/4G LTE. You can set it up to remember multiple locations...home, work, etc. I tried using the SmartActions app, but it had too large of an area where it kept Wifi on which created conflicts with other SmartActions that I had set up. Y5 Battery Saver was much more precise.
