    I have my phone set up to require a PIN after the screen locks. I don't need it to do this when I am at home though so I would like to use Tasker to disable this when I am at home connected to my wifi.

    I can create a profile tbat detects the required state but I cannot disable the PIN lock. I used the Keyguard Off action but it doesn't seem to work. My phone activates the profile but I still have to enter the PIN.

    Has anyone else managed to do this on an S4? Is Keyguard Off not the correct action?

    There's a dedicated Tasker forum here Tasker - Android Forums where people are more likely to give you much more relevant advice, i've reported your post just to try to get it moved over for ya. :)

    Although that wasn't exactly what I was after, it did give me the information I needed to create a profile that did what I needed so thank you very much for your help, I appreciate it.

    For some reason using Keyguard doesn't seem to work but using the Secure Settings plugin and PIN disable/enable did the trick.

    NP. I saw your thread in the S4 section and said "Hey, I like that idea!"

    Just a matter of finding the information that worked. :)

    Having messed about with this for ages (one x), i noticed that keyguard disable isn't in the administrative rights section of secure settings, whereas pin/password disable is, which is why it works.
