Question Using tasker to turn off Lock screen with Blue tooth connected.

Just wondering if anyone has used Tasker to turn off (unlock) pin protected lock screen on S4 (and how to do it) - to allow use of car/headset bluetooth connected and using s-voice to make phone call.

With either car handsfree or headset connected now, I have to disturb driving to look at the phone to unlock the screen protector to allow access to s-voice to make any calls. Any input appreciated.

S Voice is the problem - it does not work with a PIN-locked screen. I turned S Voice off, which by default then allows the phone to use the Google voice command set, and that works through bluetooth while the screen is PIN-locked. I do not know how Tasker might change this equation, but I doubt it.
