Hello;

We have been working in Smart Unlock app and we would like to share with the community.
Smart Unlock has been developed by KuRouZu and HaZeX.

smart unlock android lollipop

With Smart Unlock you can skip the lock security while connected to a trusted Wi-Fi or Bluetooth devices. No slide, pin, pattern or facial recognition will be requested while connected to trusted devices. This app works on android 4.1+ and does not need root or any other software.
This app bypasses both the slide and the secure lock screen when enabled and connected to a trusted environment, meaning if you press the power button to wake the device, you're immediately shown your home screen.

We hope you can help us to find test our just released app in several diferent devices, and report any malfunction or bug if found.

A 7 days trial version of Smart Unlock can be found at google play, but after that time the app will ask to purchase the full version.
To avoid this issue and give a better app to the community, we have created a special version of Smart Unlock for XDA members. This XDA version is limited to 3 trusted devices , but you can use the app as long as you wish.

Download Smart Unlock v1.6 XDA version - HERE - (max. 3 trusted devices) Last updated 5-August-2015

Download Smart Unlock v1.7 Beta XDA version - HERE - Last updated 7-September-2015. Changelog beta here.

Download Smart Unlock from Google Play - HERE - ( 7 days trial)
IMPORTANT!!!!!: Some issues found with Samsung Galaxy series with touchwiz. We are working to find a solution. Please do not leave bad reviews because of this. On google play we have excluded the app for download for those devices on Google play.

To Do list: (our next things to implemtent for near future)
- BLE (bluetooth low energy) We will try make the app compatible with smartbands and smartwatchs that uses BLE.
- Add NFC
- Try to solve the issues with samsung and/ create a samsung edition of the app.
- Manual lock button without "close and exit" app.

UPDATE!!: We have been working on a new app Smart Unlock Universal - Compatible with Samsung and with some other devices that were causing issues.
Please note that this version does not support Patter Lock, only PIN and Password
Works with android 4+ and 5.1+ BUT DO NOT WORK ON android 5.0 , 5.0.1 and 5.0.2
You can try it now, we would appreciate your feedback:
Download Smart Unlock v1.5.3 UNIVERSAL XDA version - HERE - Last update 3-June-2016.




FAQs:
- Can I use Slide to unlock when connected to trusted devices instead of no lockscreen?
No, we can only set Slide to Unlock in secure areas if we configure the PIN inside our app, exactly like similar apps do. We do not like this because you can not use lock pattern for example. We prefer to keep the app without slide to unlock at secure areas but in addition you can select pin/pattern and use system default settings.

- Can Smart Unlock work with Smartbands and SmartWatchs?
We are working on it. We may have a working apk soon.

- The application does not work with my bluetooth device
Maybe you have a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This kind of bluetooth are not supported yet, although some models works, we are working on it. In the meanwhile you need a normal bluetooth device like Car audio, Parrot or any BT loudspeaker. The bluetooth device must be paired/connected to the phone os tablet.

- Sometimes the app stops working or/and has been closed.
Make sure your are not using any task killer or memory optimizer that stops apps in background. If you are using any of those apps, you can add smart unlock in their exceptions list.
Here you have some of the detected incompatible apps but there may be more:
- Clean Master
- ES Task Manager
- SONY Smart Connect
- Llama (profile manager)
- ACDisplay
- Snaplock Locker
- Gravity Screen Pro
- Airwatch

- Is this app compatible with my SAMSUNG device?
Sorry but we can not make the app to work with most SAMSUNG devices due to samsung modifications in the native android lockscreen keyguard.
But the app is working properly on Samsung Google Edition or with custom ROM like CyanogenMod.

- When NFC and Location features will be implemented?
We can not guarantee an exact date. Actually we are working on improving the stability of the application before continuing adding new features.


Hope you can help us with our testing. We are listening for suggestion.
Thanks for your time

IMPORTANT!!!!!: We can not make the app to work with most SAMSUNG phone because they have modified the lockscreen keyguard native in android. Only working properly on samsung google edition or with custom roms like cyanogen.

Note: This app has been developed by KuRouZu and HaZeX. Please feel free to contact us in a private message if we can help you in any way.

I've been using on an M8 with Skydragon Lollipop ROM with no issues. Will let you know how it goes over the next couple of days. Much appreciated as Lollipop's Smart Lock isn't quite as good as I'd like.

Hello, Thanks for your report. We created this app because the default android smart lock, as you pointed, isnīt as good as it seems at begginig. We have found Smart Unlock to be far more reliable for everyday use. Thanks for trying the app and we will appreciate any other feedback in the upcoming days.
For other XDA members: If you test our app please tell us the device model and if everything worked as it should. We need testing specially on Samsung , LG and Sony device models. Thanks!

To bad BT unlocking won't work on Z2, I hope you'll find a way to fix it.

In a meanwhile if you want, I can catch logcat so you could see what's happening with a BT on Z2.

I'm quite sure that a problem is in Sony BT security mechanism, as you probably know, we have stock app for BT unlocking and that could be the problem...

Thanks for your offert about the logcat, we may need to send a special apk for this purpose. I have a Sony Tablet Z, I have tested the unlock with wifi and it was working fine but I have no tested with bluetooth, I will do it as soon as I get home.

I hate personalization layers from manufacturers >.< , its a pain for developers.

Thanks for your testing time.

Hi, If you find any bug, please send us the exact device model and the steps to reproduce this bug.
Currently we have detected some issues only on Xperia Z2/3 using bluetooth and Galaxy Note 4. We are working in a debug apk and we will send it to anyone interested helping us to debug for the incompatible devices. We would like to support as many devices as posible. Thanks in advanced.

Such a wonderful app, i like the material design and how simple to use it, and its working just fine on lg g3 custom rom 5.0


But the only thing i didn't like about it is the screen never locks up!! In Google smart unlock when u r connected to trusted device and wants to unlock the screen it takes u to the lockscreen and then u swipe to unlock or tap the locker to lock the device !!

I hope u give an option to do that , it will be perfect ☺☺
