What I have to do is very simple, I want to use Tasker to ping my Raspberry PI unit when I get close to home.
What I have:
- An Android 6.1 Phone
- An ssh server I can reach from everywhere
- A Raspberry PI unit behind a router at home
I have downloaded tasker, so I can trigger applications on my phone and I have an app to connect to my remote ssh server. My idea is something like:
- Have the Raspi periodically check a file on the server.
- File is updated with a flag on whether I am close to home or not by Tasker + SSH application on my phone
I need some help on how one can achieve 2. or similar. Essentially, I would like to set up tasker so that on triggers it will make my phone execute a script on the server, any hint?
