The first thing we need is the ability to control the HS100 smart plug from Tasker on our Android phone. If you haven’t already, be sure to check my preview post where I explain how to create two Tasker Tasks, that will turn our plug On and Off.
For the next step I’ll use the WearTasker: with this app you can choose some of your Tasker tasks and publish them on your watch. They will show as buttons when you open WearTasker on your wrist, and the corresponding task will run when pressed. Quite simple. TBH WearTasker feels like a natural extension of Tasker to Android Wear.
You can buy a Pro in-app purchase if you’d like, which unlocks some cool features, but what I use here works with the free version.
So let’s publish both our smart plug tasks. Open Wear Tasker on your phone, and create a new shortcut. Choose your “Power On Plug” task, and name it however you like. You can also select an icon and a color. Then repeat the same operations with the other task:
Back to the app, it should now look like this:
And that’s how it will look on your watch:
Now try to press one of the Task and see how your HS100 smart plug responds!
I love WearTasker. I find it extremely usefull to be able to call Tasker tasks from my watch. Some other tasks I have there are one to power off my home server, one to refresh my Plex library, and one to send a Whatsapp to my wife with my current location and current route ETA.
