Aqara temperature sensor

I have successfully connected my raspberry Pi 3+ to 4 Aqara temperature sensors. Just wondering can this be done using a Linux machine running on VMware? Would I have to install a separate Bluetooth device for my VMware host?

For bluetooth devices, maybe. (assuming it’s on ESXi)
There’s no pass through of the native controller.
You might get away with a bluetooth usb adaptor and passing that through. Maybe. Not sure how the drivers would handle it.
If you try, I’d recommend trying with a really cheap one, so you don’t waste much money. and get back to us if it works.
