Rules can be configured in 4 ways:
- Location - Rules based on a geographical location that is defined by you
- Motion - Limit access if the device detects motion
- Day and Time - Specify apps that are restricted during particular days or times
- Ad Hoc - Create. rule that can be applied ad hoc to block app categories for a specified time period.
