This Profile will show you how to automatically start up your PC using a Wake On Lan program from your Android phone when you arrive home. This example uses the Wifi to detect whether you are at the specified location.
Apps you will need : Tasker
Wol Wake On Lan WAN
I am assuming that people will know how to access their IP address and MAC address info to enter into the WOL App. If there's enough demand I will write up how to access that information too but for now let's go ahead and set up WOL in the App and name a profile for it.
Once you have that set up, load up Tasker and click the "New" button located at the bottom of the screen. Name this profile something like "Home" or "Work" or where the profile will become active.
A new window will now open showing you a list of options. Go ahead and choose "State" and click on "Wifi Connected" at the bottom. Another new windows will open click on the magnifying glass next to the SSID and select your wifi network. Scroll the window to the bottom and click the "Done" button.
Tasker will now ask you to select a Task which will happen when your phone connects to that Wifi network. Click the New Task button and name it Wifi, next click the Plus button on the left hand side and choose the "Misc" option and then "Action Intent"
This is where we tell Tasker to talk to the WOL App we installed earlier.
First select the "Action" box and enter "com.benfinnigan.wol.widgetlaunch"
Next choose "Launcher" from the "Cat" dropdown box
Leave the "Data" field blank
In the first "Extra" field enter "CPATH: /mnt/sdcard/wolanwan/profile.dat" Notice the space between CPATH: and /mnt. Replace the word Profile with the name of your settings that you entered into the WOL App earlier.
Next Scroll down to the "Target" dropdown menu and choose "Activity" as the selection.
Click the "Done" button.
You should now have an "Action Intent" listed in the window showing, click "Done" again.
Now whenever you arrive at the location with your selected Wifi, your phone will auto wake up the PC.
