    Default Wake Up Tablet

    Hi all, really simple question for someone I hope :-)

    I have an Android Tablet hanging on the wall with no password etc. I use it for CCTV at home and video door bell. When someone rings the door bell the tablet makes a noise but stays asleep - is it somehow possible to have the tablet wake up when the door bell rings and to jump straight to the app which runs the video door bell and show the image of the person there?

    Many thanks

    Paul

    You can do it by apps,



    There might be more in the app store.

    They all seem to keep your tablet awake?? Was hoping to have my tablet asleep, then wake up displaying the app when the door bell is pushed. I should add if I keep the image of the door bell, the tablet does not sleep!!

    A mate of mine did this. He had the doorbell trigger a relay that momentarily cut power to the tablet. When the power restores, the tablet wakes. He also wired a mini PIR in parallel to the doorbell and put that in a little tube so that when you walk directly in front of the tablet it triggers the relay.
