    Alarm set to play some loud wake up music along with a nice greeting that im awesome

    The popular find my phone received text, which i edited to include date, time, battery, location, and memory

    Automate a birthday greeting to a few of my family members at 8am on their birthday

    Text for if i misplace my phone to crank the media volume and start playing music

    Gesture when flipped will load Work email

    Reads battery power when initially plugged in

    Turn off volume when camera is launched

    Few other widgits with stats for phone

    One thing i am tryng to currently figure out is if i can remotly via text change my lockscreen to a PIN or password. Any help would be appreciated
    I am assuming in your text to find your phone and for your misplaced phone you have a secret word that you text. Also I assume you don't use a keyguard right now. If you do you should check out this thread. Tasker + Password Lock plugin - Tasker | Google Groups
    It should help you with a plugin that allows you to switch between the types of locks.


    Setup the type of lock you want in settings - Location & security - set up screen lock

    In tasker: The context for what you want would be the same as your other texting profiles only searching for another secret word.

    the task would be as follows
    + - display - keyguard on


    You could also set another profile to search for another word to remotely turn it off
    + - display - keyguard off

    The link to the password locker plug in is bad in the link above. Use this: http://www.appbrain.com/app/locale-p...PasswordPlugin

    Good info on the Lock question thank you
    Does anyone know of a way to edit the slide to answer, use camera button to answer or create a widgit to answer for example.

    Got a question about the screen timeout in tasker... here is what I have set up:

    Context: Power - Source = any
    Task: Display Timeout = Secs * Mins * Hours *
    Task: Stay On = Mode With AC or USB Power

    When I plug in the phone, the tasker notification pulldown shows that the profile is active, but the phone screen still times out after 5 minutes (which is the default longest timeout via settings/display.

    Any ideas why the profile isn't actually working. I know I could get the same results via settings/applications/development/stay awake, but I don't understand why tasker isn't working in this case.

    Why have the display timeout in there?
    I think that is what is screwing it up

    I'm confused on what you are asking.

    Are you trying to answer the phone with the camera button? Or are you just looking for a single button press instead of a slide to answer?

    Okay, going to try it without the display timeout... thought I read somewhere that it was necessary to have that as well as the Stay On task, but for some reason it never occurred to me to try it without...

    Does anyone know how to get sunrise / sunset information from the phone or internet to use as a parameter in Tasker?

    Thanks,
    Hey tom,
    Don't know if anybody got back to you... not sure if there is some kind of http get u can pull from weather sites about sunrise but why don't u just...

    Profile Day
    Two contexts
    Time 7:30am-5:00pm
    State - power - source any
    Action
    Display - brightness - drag slider to full
    Maybe add an exit task for auto brightness?

    Profile Night
    Same thing just change times
    And use display - auto brightness

    u can just change the times as seasons go by with clicking on the context and editing it.
    U prob figured all this out already.

    IIRC the screen will dim based on the display timeout setting even on AC power where the device is set to stay on. I have a similar profile that sets the timeout to something like 23 hours to prevent the screen from dimming when the profile is active.

    Underground/Subway/No Service Battery Saver

    Living in New York, I often find myself underground. When phones lose service, they increase signal strength trying to make a connection, so I built a profile that turns on Airplane mode when I lose signal for more than a minute. It then turns off airplane mode to check signal every 10 minutes. I believe it will stop running once it checks and signal is restored, but maybe I need to create an exit for it?

    Profile: Underground
    Context 1: Variable, %CELLSIG=0
    Context 2: Time, Repeat every 10 Minutes

    Task: Underground
    A1: Airplane Mode - Set - Off
    A2: Wait 1 minute
    A3: Airplane Mode - Set - On - If %CELLSIG=0

    Update: This didn't work, because the repeat is meaningless, and because %cellsig rarely actually hits 0. The solution is actually simpler:

    Profile: Underground
    Context: State - Signal Strength - 0 to 1

    Task: Underground
    A1: Wait 1 minute
    A2: Airplane Mode - Set - On - If %CELLSIG<1
    A3: Wait 10 minutes
    A4: Airplane Mode - Set - Off

    If there's still no signal, it will trigger the task again.

    Tommyz,
    I think I have an idea on how to make it adjust to sunrise and sunset. I will program and test it today and let you know.
