Call Filter Alarm - Choose who can wake you!

Do you use your smartphone as alarm? Do you want only certain people to contact you while sleeping?
If you simply leave your smartphone turned on, you risk that anybody can wake you up, or... you use Call Filter Alarm!

Using this innovative app, you can define all the alarms you need with the possibility to specify, for every single alarm, who can call you, shutting up all other calls / sms notifications and intelligently manage wifi activation / deactivation, data usage, offline mode.

How it works:
- Define the alarm
- Choose who can call you (if needed)
- Before going to sleep, enable sleep mode

Your phone will ring only for who you decided. Other calls / sms will happen in silent mode and you will be able to see them as lost when you will wake up.
I think it may be useful for who, for example, works the night shift or is often away from home and wants to be able to receive, while sleeping, only calls from his dear ones.

In addition to the particular call and sms filters feature, using Call Filter Alarm you can:

- Intelligently manage wifi activation / deactivation, data usage, offline mode, silent mode with a single button: the sleep mode
- Personalize sleep mode as you want
- Set tone, volume and vibration for allowed call and allowed sms
- Set volume, volume increment, snooze, tone (music or ringtone), vibration for every single alarm in addition to application level
- Daily alarm repetition
- Incremental alarm volume
- Multilanguage (English and Italian now available)

It's simple, immediate and extremely effective.

Call Filter Alarm is available in english and italian, has been downloaded 4400+ times and its current average rating is 4.7/5 (92 ratings)

Finally someone has made an app for this!

I've been using tasker for this function, but I can't get that to function 100% perfectly.

I have some suggestions that would make the program perfect in my opinion:

- Tasker integration would be nice. Right now my 'sleep mode' is activated automatically when the phone is charging, if it's dark in the room and if it's after 10pm. It is deactivated when i press the 'stop alarm' button when my alarm goes off. It would be great if tasker could enable and disable your app's sleep mode as well.

- An option that when contacts on the white list call you during sleep mode, your phone does not ring, but your phone automatically sends a custom text saying something like: 'this person is now asleep and his phone is muted, you can wake him up in case of an emergency by texting the word 'alarm''.
When a whitelisted person sends you a text saying 'alarm', it triggers the alarm from the app. This way, a whitelisted person won't wake you up by accident.

Keep up the great work!

If I use an external app for my alarms (Sleep as Android) can I use this in conjunction with my other app?

Keep up the great work!

+1

I came to this thread to suggest a similar thing, but painy beat me to it.
It would really be awesome if one could preset an SMS being sent to the caller, with custom text.
My solution for emergencies would be for the app to allow the call to be heard if it reoccurs within some preset time. An option for an automated SMS like
"Your call has been silenced because... In case of emergency, call again within ... minutes and the call will be allowed to go through."
would be great.
Moreover, instead of whitelisting, being able to blacklist callers seems to make more sense, as people unknown to you are not likely to disturb you during sleep for trivial matters, in contrast to your closest ones.

Seems like a great app, although usage for some days will verify it's reliability. Keep up the good work!

Hi! Surely the automatic activation would be a useful thing and it would be much appreciated. The problem, however, is that the only source of "support" of Call Filter Alarm is advertising and not passing through the screen to activate the sleep mode, this source would be less.

I'm still considering the publication of a pro version (paid and ad free) which may contain, among other innovations of this type (eg widget), what you have requested.

Thanks for your suggestion!

I don't know Tasker... I'll take a look!

Wow! This is a very good suggestion! Ok, this will be the next feature I'll work on!
