Projects / is designed to lock a display or terminal once a Bluetooth device (like a cell phone) is out of range. The script queries the RSSI (signal strength) of a Bluetooth device. Once the RSSI passes above a certain threshold a timer is started, and once the timer expires a locking program is run.

      Release Notes: This release will not count rfcomm connect time against the timer. It handles zombies. It uses a different default device name (it is still uncertain how this works on most systems).

        Release Notes: This release has been fixed to use an rfcomm connection to poll the RSSI (slightly more reliable results).
