After 2 years developing and improving Rules Engine I have created Automated Device for 4.0+ devices.
This program is rules engine that let your device behave automatically according to conditions and execute actions
Please submit any comment, error, suggestion here.

Android Market link
Direct link to APK

Automated Device is an application designed to let you automate the behaviour of your device. It is based in rules. The user can define many rules to define the device's state in different situations.
A rule is defined by:
Conditions: When every condition (AND clause) o at least one (OR clause) in a rule is satisfied then the rule is satisfied. Examples:
From Monday to Friday, between 12:00 and 05:00 (Time-Date condition)
To be inside (or outside) my home (Position condition)
Bluetooth state is ON (Hardware condition)
Battery level between 0% and 20%
Incoming phone call
Incoming SMS containing some word
Power state, battery or connected
Screen state
Other rule is matched or not
Other program is running or not
Phone state (ringing...)
Calendar appointments. This condition is matched when current date is inside of the appointment and the appointment text contain a user defined word
Brightness mode
autosync state
Network type (GPRS, HSPA, CDMA, LTE, etc)
Device connectivity state
Headphone state
Car mode
Dim state
Wifi hotspot
To be connected to a wifi network specified by its name
To receive a SMS/MMS comming from some phone number or with its text containing some word or phase
Ambient light
Ambient temperature
Proximity sensor level
Some phone number is calling you (ringin), or is in call with you, or just called you
Mobile operator name

Actions to be executed when the rule passes from unmached to matched: Actions to be executed when every condition is satisfied. Each one can be applied once or periodically while the rule is matched Examples:
Set Bluetooth OFF
Set device volume
Launch a program
Kill a program
Apply a profile. A profile is compound by actions. So when the rule applies a profile it simply execute its associated actions.
Set different kinds of sound levels (system, notification, alarms, etc)
Set Brightness mode (automatic / manual) and bright level
Set autosync state
Play a song
Send SMS
Send Email. You can include many variables, like free memory and disk, last caller, battery statistics, sensors values (pressure, light, temperature, etc)
Car mode
Set wallpaper
Set ringtone (android ringtone or user mp3)
Screen off timeout
Dim state
Wifi hotspot
Play a system notification
Vibrate some milliseconds
Show popup message with free text and variables
Show a tob bar notification with free text and variables
Enable / Disable rules.
Sent variables (temperature, position, etc) to a web server as HTTP parameters
Open system dialogs, like 3G/2G, Tethering, etc
Actions to be executed when the rule passes from matched to unmatched. (The same ones like the above section)
The device broadcast many events, like battery level, time, etc. Those events are processed by Automated Device and the rules are evaluated.
Important: When a rule is applied then It wont be applied again until it doesn't satisfy it previously. For example, if a rule condition is "Battery level less than 15%" and the action is "Play a song" and current battery level is 10% then the song will play. But it wont play again until the rule wont be satisfied and then satisfied again. So if the battery level raises to 20% and then decreases again to 8% then it will play the song again. This avoid loops so a rule is executed many times.
SWITCHERS: This window lets you change the state of Wifi, Bluetooth, etc. It also lets you set a time-out. When the time expires the program will set the previous state. It also lets you "lock" a profile with/without time limit. For example, if you go the cinema you could lock the profile "Silent". When Automated Device is locked it wont execute any rule
PROFILES: A profile is a set of actions. This section lets you define and apply right now a profile. For example, you could create the profile "Meeting". Its actions would be speaker to vibrate, flight mode and send a SMS. The three actions would be applied. You could establish a timeout. During this time the program WONT apply any rule. In this way the program wont apply other rule that could change the speaker state, for example. Once the timer expires then the engine will be enabled again.
NEW PROFILE: This dialog lets you choose a name and description for the new profile.
ACTIONS: Here you can choose the set of actions associated to the profile.
RULES: In this windows you can manage your rules and create new ones. If the background of the rule is RED it means the rule isn't met right now. If the background is GREEN it means the rule is met right now.
RULE INFORMATION: This screen lets you manage the name and description and shows how many conditions and actions the rule has. It lets you set the priority of the rule. If two rules match at the same time then this priority will solve conflicts. For example, if both rules are going to change the audio state. It also lets you add/edit/remote more actions/conditions.
RULE CONDITIONS: This screen lets you add / remove / edit conditions. There are several types of conditions:
WEEK DAY AND TIME: You can select some weekdays and then a begin time and end time. For example, Monday and Tuesday from 22:00 to 06:00
ENTER/EXIT A PLACE: You must choose a location and a radius. So if you choose a "Enter a place condition" then the condition will be met if you are inside. If you choose "Exit a a place condition" then the condition will be met if you are outside.
STATUS CONDITIONS: There are many conditions related with some hardware status. For example, you could use WIFI ON. This condition is matched when the WIFI state is ON
LOG: This screen shows the application log. Each log line has a category: Debug, Info, Warning and Error. Here you know what happens inside the program. You can see a rules history. And you can clear it and export it by email.
SETTINGS: Hare you configure the program.
Launch at boot time: If selected the the program will be launched at boot time.
Log level. This options lets you choose what kind of log events you want to store.
Automated Device enabled. If disabled then It wont process events.
Show icon notificacion in the top bar.
EXPERIMENTAL: Location autorefresh interval. By default Android doesnt allow location changes when the screen is off. This option try to fix it.
