Bluetooth Detection Trial

Bluetooth Detection Trial




This is a 30-day, fully functional free trial of Bluetooth Detection for Tasker or Locale. Bluetooth Detection is an add-on app for Tasker or Locale that lets you set conditions based on connected or nearby Bluetooth devices.

Please note: this is a trial version of a plug-in. There will be an in-app purchase required to enable full functionality after the 30-day trial is done, and you MUST have either Locale or Tasker installed for this to work. 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 Address :). 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."

Recent changes:
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.

Great! Does what's it's supposed to. However I'd like to be able to assign multiple BT devices to a profile. The dev is also very quick to respond! Great for tasker!

Thanks! Just getting back into Tasker and wanted something to disable my lockscreen when connected to a BT handsfree in the car. Works fine on my WiFi but BT had some trouble with. Hopefully this will resolve it :)
