I am trying to figure out how to get my phone and Fire Tablet HD8 (already installed Playstore and Android apps installed on it) to unlock when a “Trigger” occurs using MacroDroid.

My macro is designed to unlock my phone and open up my Ring app when a notification comes through ST. It sucks I can’t tie just Ring now that it is tied to ST. The notifications only come through ST unless someone rings the doorbell then a Ring notification will come through.

The action after the trigger is to turn on the screen and then turn lock screen off. Finally launch Ring. I can get the screen to turn on, but the screen for both devices will not unlock. The app will launch once unlocked.

Someone did suggest “Secure Settings”, but I have no idea how to set that up correctly to trigger an unlock on the devices.
