    I have my Note 8 set to "No Lock" when at my home, but the setting is not working. My Note 8 keep locking after a few minutes. I have the correct address (my home, where I'm at now), with Location turned on. What could be wrong … ?

    Your home might be in a difficult location for proper geotriangulation.

    I don't think WiFi Triangulation is the problem .... Smart Lock problems is a known issue that many people have ....

    We have had probably more than 50 different devices connected to our WiFi (not all at the same time), with no problems.

    There have been times when we had around 20 different devices connected to our WiFi at the same time, with no problems.

    Yeah. Never had any luck using proximity locks. It's better to lock as an error than to unlock as the error.
