Is there anybody who knows how I can add an Shortcut of Gear Settings -> Display -> Brightness on Nova Launcher Desktop?

If I try to set an Shortcut of Settings. I only can use Display. But this is the setting of the Device and it will crash everytime.

Hope you can help me.
Thx forward

Creat a widget: Shortcuts >> Activities >> Settings (the stock one not nova) >>displayDisplaySettingsList

I know this isn't what you asked about.... but I'm using Tasker to set the automatically set the screen brightness based on time of day.

i.e.auto set brightness set to "4" (tasker display brightness value of 142) at 8AM for daytime use, and brightness set to "2" (tasker display brightness value of 54) at 5PM for nighttime.

Probably could make some homescreen buttons to toggle/change brightness levels too...

Thx for reply

@almulder1092
That's the way I've done it.

Maybe I should take a deeper look for Tasker. I've often read about it.

I use the tasker way. It 9:00pm my watch goes it to low brightness and silent mode until 8:00am then it returns to normal brightness and sound mode.

I would but I have since wiped it out and reverted back to stock. This weekend I plan on redoing my gear. (Was testing some stuff out). Once I do I will upload them.
