App that allows changing between swipe to unlock to pattern

I hate pattern or code to unlock phone unless I'm out in public. Is there an app or widget that allows you to just press a button or two to switch these. So when I leave the house I can tap once or twice and switch from a no security swipe to unlock to a preset pattern or code?

Look up app "Skiplock". When connected to wifi, the lockscreen will be just stardard swipe. When wifi is disable or wifi connection is lost (i.e, leaving home), the lockscreen will automatically turn to pin / password lockscreen. Root required for a pattern lockscreen. Finger scanner currently not compatible.

Which, unless OP has a rooted Dev S5, the app you mentioned is not a viable option.

OP asked for code or pattern lockscreen. I said that code (pin / password) lockscreen works, but only pattern requires root.
