Default [Profile] [front Camera] Photo/email image of device intruder

This is a mid-level complexity profile that takes a photo of someone who incorrectly enters your pattern lock (in this example) twice and emails it to you.

This is based on multiple examples found but this is my own spin on it.

The filename of the photo is always the same so it overwrites itself, saving space because if, like me, you often put your pattern in wrong, you'll end up with a million pictures of yourself

  1. SL4a apk -
  2. Secure settings - Google Play
  3. Folder \sdcard\sl4a\scripts containing -
  4. Python - Install through SL4a as below:

    I have attached the profile exported xml, in a zip. Put this (extracted) in /sdcard/tasker/profiles/. You will still need to do the above and add your email address and password to the tasks below though, but should save some time. UNTESTED
Creating the profile:

  • Add (+) Profile, name "Intrusion"
  • Select State > Plugin > Secure Settings > configuration Edit > Failed Login Attempts > (set your number, Tick "Device admin" and save
  • New Task
  • + Media > Take Photo > Camera "Front" > Filename "Last-intruder" (and apply)
  • + Variable > Variable Set > name "%EMAIL_USER" to
  • + Variable > Variable Set > name "%EMAIL_PSWD" to youremailpassword
  • + Variable > Variable Set > name "%EMAIL_TO" to
  • + Variable > Variable Set > name "%EMAIL_SUBJECT" to "SGS3 INTRUSION ATTEMPT"
  • + Variable > Variable Set > name "%EMAIL_ATTACH" to "/sdcard/DCIM/Tasker/last-intruder.jpg"
  • + Script > Run SL4A Script > Name (Search icon) > Pass variables " %EMAIL_USER,%EMAIL_PSWD,%EMAIL_TO,%EMAIL_ATTACH,%E MAIL_SUBJECT "
  • Apply
