With enough money, a collection of Z-Wave devices, and a Vera smart home controller, it doesn't take much to turn your home into an intelligent fortress. There's even an Android app by Vera that puts control of everything into the palm of your hand. But if we've learned anything over the years, it's that you're not impressing anyone until there's a Tasker plugin that can automate everything for you. Now there is.

AutoVera comes to us from joaomgcd, the maker of the best Tasker plugins out there, and security is far from its only application. Not only is your phone able to respond to anything that happens in your home, the opposite is the case as well. You can have your lights come on automatically when your alarm goes off. Then you can set them to go back off whenever you flip your phone. In short, it turns your smartphone into an automated singular point of control for all the things.

As is the case with Tasker in general, this software will take some time for new users to pick up and understand. But if you've used one plugin before, then you should be able to find your way around.

As usual, there's an unlock key you will need to take advantage of all the plugin has to offer, and this time it goes for $3.49. None of this will work without Tasker, so be sure to grab that too if you don't already have it installed.
