Default [Q] Different security settings based on wifi connection/gps?

I cart my Transformer Prime back and forth between campus and home every day, and there's important enough information on my tablet that I use as complicated a swipe pattern as I could possibly make to keep it secure.

Except it's a royal pain in the butt when I'm at home. I tried both just dealing with it and changing the setting every time I got to either place but got annoyed with both solutions. Plus, with Tasker installed I always ask myself why do something when I can automate it?

I'm just wondering if what's asked in the thread title is possible, and if so, how? Thanks guys.

I thought tasker or a similar app could do something like that. Or find a widget or toggle button for THST feature you want.

I'm sure that tasker could do it, but on my own I haven't been able to figure out to have it change depending on which wifi network I connect to.

I'm sure that there are apps out there that let you set different user profiles. I would think that would include everything.
