    These apps are similar. My question is can they be used to change an in app setting?

    I.e. for lux when I connect to my car bt change my lux profile to "car".

    Obviously I could set it to kill lux and change the screen brightness and enable when bt disconnects. But I'm trying to use llama for higher functions.

  2. Welcome to Android Forums.

    What device are you using and is it root-ed?

    I don't use lux, but google suggests that the dev has provided tools for it to work with tasker.

    In the actions dialogue of Tasker, select 3rd party.

    Another thing Thom may be hinting at. When you are rooted, you can simulate screen taps... which gives you ability to adjust almost any settings by having Tasker activate it the same way you would. It can be a little clunky, but it works. When (like lux) there is built-in support or plugins, that's the cleaner way to go.

  4. Yes ... root-ed screen taps. I have not been root-ed for years and have close to no experience with this capability in Tasker. Perhaps some others here can chip in.

    This link explains how to emulate a tap in tasker when rooted. It's pretty easy. But clunky for a variety of reasons: if an app update moves things around then you have to update your Tasker task. Also if such tasker task executes when my phone is sleeping, when it tries to launch the app it brings up instead the sliding "lock" screen and never gets to the app.

Tasker Forum


⚙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

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!
