    I own a SamSung Galaxy S3 Model SGH-1747M running 4.1.1 (not rooted). We encountered a major problem with the unit. We could not make outgoing Bluetooth calls from our phones to our handsfree units. The units were a Blueant S3 and a Motorola T505. The reason was that S Voice could not start up with the phone locked with a PIN. A PIN was
    critical on our phones as we use them for business and we have many
    documents and contacts that we don't want easily accessible. After
    reading countless forums and spending hours searching for an answer
    (over 14), I am happy to report that a solution has been found.

    By using Tasker and Secure Settings:
    Profile->Bluetooth Connected
    Task->PlugIn->Secure Settings->Password/Pin->Disabled
    I then added an Exit Task
    Task->Plugin0>Secure Settings->Password/Pin->Enabled (Set to my old
    PIN number)

    I have set this up for both of my BlueTooth units and it works like a
    hot damn! I just wish someone would have posted this before I had
    spent so much time searching for a solution. Hopefully this helps

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!

Note
: Tasker uses the BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN permission in order to provide the System Lock functionality
