The reason that I am exploring Bluetooth is that I had remove HA App from my wife’s Iphone because she continuously received Apple notifications telling her that a new device was connecting.
I am wondering if I use Bluetooth then whenever my wife enters or leaves home it will then create a State in HA that I can use in an Automation with, for instance, the A/C thermostat.
I don’t think an iPhone can be detected using Bluetooth. At least I never succeeded trying. I am using WiFi for presence, but sometimes I open the door earlier than my phone is connected to the WiFi, so I get an alert.
In an attempt to prevent that from happening, I considered using Bluetooth. Since the pybluez incompatibility with the current Python version, this seems to be a no go
I created cookie file but it contains more than one cookie, so I don’t really know which one to use. I am also not a ‘hero’ when it comes to changing the configuration file (Yaml scares me a bit ), but once I figure out which cookie to use, I’ll give it a try.
