[Tasker] Take pictures of intruders and send them per mail silently

This script will detect when someone enters the wrong unlock code or swipes the wrong pattern and sends a picture to an E-Mail address in the background, silently.
For some reason it works better with long patterns and even better with long pin codes. I don't know why. If you know it, let me know :)

Let's start, please get:
  • Tasker
  • Secure Settings (To setup a profile in Tasker which detects wrong unlock codes)
  • Python for Android (To run python code)
  • SL4A (To run the python script from Tasker)
  • The python script "SendEmailA.py" from the Tasker Wiki. (Send an E-Mails silently)
  • GoogleMail address
Open the Python for Android application, make sure it is not Python3. Press install button to install the Python runtime environment.
Open SL4A and run the "hello_world.py" script by tapping on it and selecting the leftmost terminal icon. Congratulations, you successfully installed Python and can run Python scripts from Tasker!

Here is my "SendEmailA.py" script. It has a small modification to the original file which is marked in red.

Save this file to your internal SDCard in the SL4A scripts folder (f.e. SDCard\SL4A\Scripts).

The preparation is done, lets go to Tasker. Create a new profile name it "Security Glitch" or something less obvious. Goto State -> Plugin -> Secure Settings. Click on the Edit field near configuration and select the condition "Failed Login Attempts". Type in a low number, like two. Enable "Device Admin". Read and accept the dialog. Click on save in the lower left corner. Hit the back button and create a new Task, name it "Cheeeese" or similar.
Here is my Cheeeese task:
Cheeeeese (45)

Please make sure the folder "/sdcard/DCIM/Tasker/" exists and you have the right information filled in in the purple fields. You can put a file named .nomedia into the DCIM/Tasker/ folder to make sure, it is not displayed in the gallery.
If you don't know how to setup a specific action, please google it. Line A16 is very important. To create this line goto Script -> RunSL4A Script -> in the name field select the "SendEmailA.py" file. Don't check the Terminal field, but fill in the Pass Variable field with %EMAIL_USER,%mailp,%EMAIL_TO,%EMAIL_ATTACH. The order is important. Check continue task after error.

You can delete the bright blue lines after running the Task once successfully. Please note, that your Google Mail password is stored as a global variable in Tasker Base64 encoded - but it is not a safe encryption! If you have suggestions on how to store the password encrypted n Tasker, please tell me!

Run the task a few time to check if your device vibrates twice (short vibrate at the beginning and a long vibrate at the end. Check your myemailtosendto@domain.com mails, don't forget to look into the spam folder. If you received a picture exit Tasker, lock your device, count to ten and check by entering the wrong unlock code/pattern a few time. Maybe you can make the profile run with a higher priority, not necessary. If everything went well and you received the beautiful pictures of yourself delete the bright blue lines.
Uninformatively there is an android limitation which will show the SL4A icon for a second in the notification bar when the email is send... I tried to make python run without SL4A, but was not successful yet. A workaround could be to make the icon transparent...

I wrote this down pretty fast, please forgive me if something is unclear. I will refresh this post soon.

    5. I love this, and I'm almost there with it fully working, I just can't for the life of me get it to actually send me the picture. I can see the picture that was taken in the expected directory place, and the emails sends, there is just no attachment. I've checked, re checked and double rechecked, and seem to have everything right, but no attachment. Where could I be going wrong? Also, I wish to try directly importing the links you guys have posted on pastebin to the XML files, but how to I actually import those to Tasker?

  3. Thanks for your time and effort with this, but I too find that it hangs my phone and wants to kill Tasker. It eventually reboots my phone and never got to the SL4A script. (Never saw the icon that it was running as I have seen while trying to set this up using a different source). That source and this one never took a picture.(I have it storing in gallery until I can make sure it is working). It also removed the task from Tasker, causing me to have to re-input it again.

  6. Hi, i think there is a possibility for CyanogenMod users to prohibit the SL4A-Icon; in the Apps-Menu you can block single apps from showing notifications. Unfortunately I cant test it because my phone does not have a frontcamera, but maybe someone else can?

  12. Hi.
    what am I suppose to write in the purple field at step a12 and a14? (I have a swipe pattern lock)

    When i test this task inside tasker with the "play" funktion, it snaps a photo and saves it to "/sdcard/DCIM/Tasker/"..but no email was sent to my gmail..

    and when I enter the wrong swipe pattern to test it out it doesn't do anything..no photo´s nothing..

    does anyone have an idea what went wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I really appreciate this task & all of the effort therein.

    Unfortunately, even when porting the XML in directly, I get an error message: "EMAIL_PSWD missing" on rooted LGG2 stock 4.2.2

    I have quadruple-checked the steps (and then some) and got the same error message when I input each step line-by-line; in fact, I have found a discrepancy: in the text above, line 13 (the second, darker one with the "decode" action) stores the result in %mailp, but in the ported XML the direction stores the result in %email_p (both are referenced properly in Line 16).

    I've tried changing all the "%EMAIL_P" variables to "%EMAIL_PSWD" and making sure that they are all referenced in line 16, but I have had zero success.

    Have you any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To be clear, my password is entered properly in Line 12.

  14. I have also tried setting the "%EMAIL_P=%EMAIL_PSWD" and "%EMAIL_PSWD=%EMAIL_P" variables, but these haven't worked, either.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Got it figured out:

    I set a new variable %EMAIL_PSWD as [my password] and followed all the steps for the %EMAIL_P variable - in the end I was able to delete everything referencing "%EMAIL_P" .... I still had trouble when I deleted the encode command (blue line 13) so I just left it in; subsequent tests were successful.

    Thanks again for all of your work, Benny!!

    1. Did you try what worked for me: setting %EMAIL_PSWD as I described above on March 1?

    1. I had to clear out all the Python & SL4A and to a fresh install of them at one point. Also I've noticed that for some reason, if I tried to right click the "SendEmailA.py" script that had been edited by Benny and save it as it was through Windows it would save as an empty file; doing a copy/paste into notepad & saving the traditional way solved this.

      Also I got a little confused with the instruction and eventually replaced all of the %mailp & %emailp variables with %EMAIL_PSWD - I mean all of them. At this moment it's working for me, but there are absolutely no references to either of those variables - both the variable convert direction results are stored in %EMAIL_PSWD (which might be why it won't run for me with the first Line 13 deleted, but I've made my peace with that).

      It's possible that this has made my password less secure; I got around this by simply opening up an entirely separate Gmail account solely for this purpose that sends the email to a specific address on my mail server also created solely for this purpose. Both are edited, cleaned & maintained through Outlook, so it's not the logistical nightmare it may sound like. It also helped with the troubleshooting, since I was able to confirm whether the email had been sent without being received. I don't know why, but I also had to edit Line 11 to remove the @gmail.com part before it would work.

      Also I had to recreate line 16 after downloading the new SendEmailA.py script. My pass variables are %EMAIL_USER,%EMAIL_PSWD,%EMAIL_TO,%EMAIL_ATTACH (also don't forget the commas, I made that mistake & it took me twenty minutes to find it) and I just used the search function to find it instead of typing the name.

  20. yeah right. Well I did it both ways, by copying all the text to Tasker manually, and also "your" way, and changed the gmail settings and I still get errors even with the added variable convert setting you added in a previous post, so I did what was necessary.....I flushed the profile and looking elsewhere for something that works!

    I want to run 'sendemailA.py' from SL4A to send a mail with attachment.
    I am hard-coding the varible 'attachment' value with a picture's file path present in my sdcard as bellow but I receive the email without the attachment.
    The attachment line I have changed in 'sendemailA.py' is as follows:
    ...
    body = droid.getIntent().result[u'extras'][u'%EMAIL_BODY']
    except:
    body = ''

    try:
    attachments = '/sdcard/pictures/myphoto.jpg'
    # commenting it droid.getIntent().result[u'extras'][u'%EMAIL_ATTACH']
    # attachments = attachments.split(',')
    except:
    attachments = ''

    # Send email
    if (sendemail(email_name, email_user, email_pswd, mailto, subject, body, attachments)):
    ...

    1. I ended up defining a new variable. It eventually worked & I ended up getting rid of a couple of previously defined variables. I think the March 19th post should cover it.

    1. Did you remember to set a different variable to attach the picture to the email? It's line A15 above, though there is an error in the list.

    1. This happened to me, too. It turns out that whenever I did anything regarding the operating system (including adjusting the ROM through Titanium Backup) I had to reinstall Python & SL4A
