Make phone ring loudly for one contact while silenced?

Every night I put my phone on silent so as not to be disturbed, however I'd like to make it so that if one specific contact calls or texts me multiple time's in the space of a few minutes the phone will go to max ringer volume but only for them. If someone could tell me an app or walk me through a tasker set up I'd be very greatful. Thank you

I use Llama to do that. Just create a silent profile (and control it using time and/or location) and add "noisy contact" to that profile. Very simple and works perfectly.

Does it make of so the contact has to call or text twice before the increase? Thank you for the response.

No, noisy contacts overrides the profile setting so they ring on the first try.

You could use this feature in the settings for calls, but I'm not sure if messages from the contact will be muted or not.

That's only a feature on Samsung ROMs precisely why I asked in the nexus 4 Q and A stock android doesn't have quiet hrs which is why I have this problem. Thanks for the reply though.

Actually it isn't only a feature on samsung roms, other roms have the feature as well. I'm using a nexus 4, that's PRECISELY why I replied to your thread in the nexus 4 q&a section.

I'm using this rom (with a touchwiz theme): http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...t-rom-t2637931

Yeah I realised it was a theme, sorry for my slightly aggressive reply, my ROM doesn't have this feature and I don't want to leave the rom for it.
