Those should give you everything you need to do this through Tasker. One caveat, this doesn't happen instantly, as Tasker limits it's activities to save battery life. If you have a weak WiFi signal it can also toggle a lot, which just means you need to put your password in even if you haven't left home.
This is interesting - Tasker and Secure Settings was how I did it on my Motorola Razr Maxx HD but I thought I had to be rooted to use Secure Settings. I know definitely had to be rooted to do the reboot program.

I'm going to try this without root and see how it goes. Stay tuned!
