    I created a profile to trigger an auto sms to wife when i arrive at work between certain hours. GPS location is set 200 meters around work location and between 15:00-22:00 but when i turned on phone at home, which is about 35 miles from gps set location, it sent the auto sms. What am i doing wrong?[​IMG]

  2. I have found Wi-Fi NEar to be much more reliable. Plug in your office SSID ...

    Code (Text):
    1. Profile: tlaOfficeNear
    2. State: Wifi Near [ SSID:TLANET-2.4GHz/TLANET-5GHz MAC:* Capabilities:* Min. Activate Signal Level:4 Channel:0 Toggle Wifi:Off ]
    3. Enter: tlaOfficeNearEnter
    4. A1: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:0 Minutes:1 Hours:0 Days:0 ]
    5. A2: Perform Task [ Name:tlaWiFiOn Priority:5 Parameter 1 (%par1): Parameter 2 (%par2): Return Value Variable: Stop:Off ]
    This one turns Wi0Fi on in my phone if I am near the SSID.

    Used to do wifi near, worked on my note3, but stopped working properly when switched to 6p. Wont trigger wifi near with screen off, but as soon as open wifi settings it will send it. Not suree if marsmallow or 6p has issues pinging wifi with screen off.
  4. I always found GPS to be rather unreliable for things like this.

⚙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!
