For No Lock Home v0.6.4 for Android 4.4.x see the content:
No Lock Home is Xposed module for lockscreen bypass based on network connectivity - when you're home, connected to your trusted WiFi AP, lock screen will not be shown (or you can set it up to display Swipe to unlock lockscreen). Once you disconnect from your AP, your default secured lockscreen will be displayed.
It's the very same principle as uses app SkipLock (formerly Unlock With WiFi) or it can be achieved using Tasker with Secure Settings. You can also try SmartLockScreen.
Similar functionality is also partialy integrated into Android 5.0.

So why use No Lock Home instead?
  • It works with any unlock method (Swipe/Face Unlock/Pattern/PIN/Password/...) - including fingerprint reader on Samsung Galaxy S5 (stock ROM w/ TouchWiz)
  • It's easy to setup (compared to complexity of Tasker). No Lock Home only requires you to enable module, reboot and add AP MAC address (using just two taps)
  • It's completely Free
  • Next to the built-in unlocking in Android 5.0, using No Lock Home is the fastest and most efficient solution (because it integrates itself directly into the system keyguard)
Additional advantages:
  • Unlock based on connected WiFi networks, Bluetooth devices or Cell towers
  • No service, no wakelock, no internet connectivity - just a few method hooks within system keyguard
  • Crazy small apk
  • Using AOSP methods which are also available in Samsung/LG devices as well as CyanogenMod
Limitations
  • Xposed required (therefore root required)
  • Version 0.x is for Android 4.4.x/KitKat only (no 5.0 Lollipop)
As seen on XDATV...


...and other tubes


It has been tested on Android 4.4.2-4 - Samsung Galaxy S5 (stock & CM11), LG G Pad 8.3 (stock & CM11), Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 (CM11). Since version 0.5.3 it's also compatible with OnePlus and HTC so all Android (4.4+) phones should be covered.

Download
No Lock Home is also available from Xposed Module Repository (QR code below) and Google play.

v0.1.0 (20140629)
- Initial release
No Lock Home v2.0 is Xposed module for Android 5.x. It's core functionality is based on TrustManagerService from GravityBox implementation. Just like with the KitKat version of No Lock Home, this solution has benefits like no background running service or best compatibility with various unlock methods.

Advantages of this module (reasons for spin off):
  • GravityBox is designed for AOSP so using it even for WiFi unlock alone on CyanogenMod breaks some CM features.
  • No Lock Home offers additional features: using AP MAC addresses, skipping first unlock after device boot, unlocking on any WiFi network, cell tower (BTS) unlock

Additional notes
  • CyanogenMod profiles alone offer lockscreen settings but it's impossible to configure it for both WiFi and BT (using it with Google's Smart Lock for BT is somehow buggy)
  • Using No Lock Home for WiFi and Google's Smart Lock for BT work just fine therefore this No Lock Home doesn't duplicate such functionality

Download
See attachment or Xposed repo.

Trying now. Promises to be a great convenience for my clumsy fingers!

More WFI hotspots? Might team up with wifi scheduler app.

Great app. I'll start using now. Suggestions for future releases:

- Set a list of more Trusted MACs (with name for identification). EDIT: Just saw how to do it, but a more friendly UI is always appreciated.
- Option to set which type of lockscreen we want (No lockscreen at all/normal lockscreen)
- App icon on launcher

Keep up the great work.

Agreed, it'd be super cool if you could choose to have a secure lockscreen when off a saved AP and an unsecured/swipe lockscreen when connected to a saved one.

awesome. using it on my rooted nexus 5.
more than one AP would be cool and no lock while connected to bt carkit would be nice.
I used a tasker profile for that, but if home was pressed, lockscreen showed up regardless

Really great App !!! But it doesn't work on my N4 4.4.4 - stock rooted...
Install App + checked it in Xposed-> rebooted -> checked my MAC -> rebooted.... still nothing.
I use Pattern lock.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thank you

Ok. Works!

Working cool at Nexus5.

Enabling multiple hotspots would be good, and to make it through SSID instead of MAC. Also with BT carkit audio
