About this app

*** NOTICE: To use this plugin, you must have both DD-WRT Companion (version '7.1.0' or higher, either Lite or Premium), and Tasker applications installed. ***

This is a Tasker Plugin that allows you to automate the act of launching commands on remote routers registered in DD-WRT Companion app (either Lite or Premium versions).

It should also work with other automation apps that support Tasker plugins, such as Automate.

As security matters, this plugin works in conjunction with DD-WRT Companion PIN protection and third-party integration features.

You can perform actions from a set of pre-defined commands, or optionally provide your own commands.

Possible actions include (but are not limited to):

• Reboot
• Wake On LAN (WOL)
• Toggle Internet Access Restriction Policies
• Toggle WAN Access for a particular device
• Toggle WOLd (Wake On LAN Daemon)
• Toggle OpenVPN Client and Server statuses
• Toggle PPTP Client and Server statuses
• Clear ARP Cache
• Clear DNS Cache
• DHCP Release / Renew
• Erase WAN Traffic Data
• Stop / Start / Restart HTTPd (HTTP Server)
• Reset Bandwidth Counters
• Toggle Syslog
• Provide your own custom command(s)

• More to come in future releases...

This list may change in the future, as we keep enriching the app with additional capabilities.

Furthermore, to allow for better transparency, you have access to a detailed audit log of all actions performed via this plugin.

To use it, open Tasker (or the appropriate automation app that supports Tasker plugins), and DD-WRT Companion will appear as an Action Plugin.

Pre-defined commands work well but custom commands are not working for me.

Love it but can we get an option to hide the launcher shortcut? Apps like SD Maid pro have that option. The icon for this isn't necessary in the app drawer. Thanks, happy new year!

Hi Chris! Thanks so much for the positive review and feedback. Regarding your question, the main window of this app actually does expose a useful audit log of all actions sent out to routers. So I think having the icon in the app drawer is necessary in this case.
