Bluetooth Detection




Bluetooth Detection is an add-on app for Tasker or Locale that lets you set conditions based on connected or nearby Bluetooth devices.



If you want to try before you buy, now there's a free trial version that you can use without limits for 30 days. If you want to test the functionality before you buy, try it out and see!

Please note: this is a plug-in. You MUST have either Locale or Tasker installed for this to work. It is built as a plug-in for either of these, and will never function on its own. If you don't understand what Locale or Tasker are, then please do not install this plug-in.



When you use Bluetooth Detection within Tasker or Locale, you can create a profile that lets you act upon Bluetooth connections or nearby devices. For example, you can use Locale to start playing music when a connection is made to your car's Bluetooth audio profile, or enable work mode when near your work laptop.



Tasker users might ask, "So what makes this different from the native functionality in Tasker?" The answer is mainly "ease of use" - not everyone wants to type in a MAC ID :). But there are also some features that I think are unique. Some examples: you can select class of device, so that (for instance) any A2DP connection triggers a task, or you can specify that you only care about a connection to your car's BT when it's the Hands-Free profile. You can also set a delay on unsetting the condition, and all of this is done in a very user-friendly interface. And you also get a local Tasker Variable with the name of the last connected device.



Note for Tasker Users: Once installed, you can find Bluetooth Detection by going to Profiles, and adding a "State" condition. Within the pop-up that appears, you will see a button labeled "Plugin." Tap that, and you will see "Bluetooth Detection."

In this release: all sorts of bug fixes! Exciting times...

Note: I am investigating an issue where edits sometimes get lost in Locale. Until I am able to fix it, you can prevent it from happening by tapping the check on the "Situation" screen (the one that you go back to after saving a change in the plugin) before editing again.

This is Google's sillyness Dev I have recanted my previous comments now, 7 times, for a positive five star review. Yet Google wants to show you a bad review. You need to talk to google. Asap...P.S. 8/8/14 google, I even removed the comments about your sillyness, but I see you put it back.so enjoy it!

Excellent Exactly what I've been looking for. Can't fault it. I used to have to choose an app on my home screen to trigger my Bluetooth when I'm in the car. With this app, I've been able to set and forget. Each time I get in the car my Bluetooth switches on. Extremely happy with my purchase. Keep up the good work.

Excellent I use this plugin with locale to start Doggcatcher when I switch on my Bluetooth headphones. It works perfectly and regular updates are a bonus.

Great plug in and even better developer This plug in for Locale works very well... Much more reliably than others. But what makes this one truly better is the active support of the developer. All too often, an app is released and then essentially abandoned. Not this developer... They remain active in supporting and improving the plug in.
