The answer doesn't seem high tech to me. They are trying to apply science to arbitrary and ambiguous definitions like this:

The answer is High tech, just create a free app for their cell phones that calls them to prayer in their homes or businesses. It is the best for both worlds they get their call and we get peace and quiet five times a day.
So how do you scientifically define when the morning light no longer looks like the "tail of a wolf"? I don't see how you can since it's not a scientific description, so they resort to asking a lot of people for their opinions. Science is supposed to be based on independently verifiable measurements, not opinions. Apparently a lot of mosques just used 1 hour and 40 minutes before sunrise and it seems life would be a lot simpler to just do that instead of figuring out when the sky looks like part of a wolf in the opinions of many different people, many who may have never even seen a wolf.
when the light “spreads horizontally” 2 and not when the light “looks like the tail of a wolf” 3 or is “vertical” 4 [which is the false fajr].
