From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Automatic Volume Up with DringMoi for WM
A very common occurrence for anyone who has a cell phone and anything on their head is misplacing it while it is in Silent mode. Just think about all the time that you can waste looking for your phone, calling yourself, just to find it by the eggs inside of the refrigerator. Well, thanks to this new app created by XDA member Corwin9S, you no longer have to go through this. The app can be configured to react to a certain phone number calling, a number of times (missed calls), and also after a timer from the calls.
Take the app for a spin, put your phone in silent, and lose it on purpose. You will see how easy finding your phone is from now on.
You never asked your phone somewhere in the house … with the ringing, off course. And, of course again, you can no longer get their hands on it!
Here is MY solution … DringMoi!
This little program, free, allows you to activate, by simple calls, the ringing of your phone. And yes!
You can find more information in the application thread.
