    Blue Tooth Dongles that Work.

    I bought most of the available BT dongles, and some from china.
    Best local is the Belkin F8T017.
    Dont beleive everything you hear about the range of any of these devices. Best I could get was 30-40 ft from any class 1 or 2 dongle type BT adapter.The range is highly deminished from Wifi, cordless phones, sheetrock etc....

    What I recommend, is the Blotutek BTD-6610, its about a hundred dollars and expect three weeks delivery. When you get it, toss the antenna and replace it with a 18db gain antenna. (check Amazon)

    Now I know who is aproaching my house......... Before they ever get to the front door.

    Do you mean for me to edit the VB code by replacing:

    hs.Plugin("BT Connector").scanner.Devices(SectionName).ReloadConfig()

    with

    hs.Plugin("BT Connector").ReloadConfig()

    If not, then can you tell where to add this?

    Thanks?

    Where 180 is the Poll Delay, 5 is the number of retries before it gives up and R1 is the HomeSeer device code.

    When the phone is disconnected, you want to be able to quickly identify it again, so you'd create an event on Mobile phone disconnected and do the following .net command (e.g.):
    ConfigureBluetooth(10, 5, R1)

    vb.net code:

    Private Sub ConfigureBluetooth(ByVal PollDelay, ByVal LostConfirm, ByVal HsDevice)
    Dim SectionName, items, section
    Dim FoundSection As Boolean
    HsDevice = HsDevice.ToLower
    For ds = 0 To 50
    SectionName = "Device" & ds.ToString
    section = hs.GetINISection(SectionName, "hspi_bt.ini")
    If section = "" Then
    FoundSection = False
    Exit For
    End If
    items = Split(section, Chr(0))
    For I = 0 To UBound(items)
    If Strings.Left(items(I), 9) = "HsDevice=" Then
    If LCase(Mid(items(I), 10)) = HsDevice Then
    FoundSection = True
    Exit For
    End If
    End If
    Next
    If FoundSection = True Then 'Start configuring
    hs.SaveINISetting(SectionName, "PollDelay", PollDelay, "hspi_bt.ini")
    hs.SaveINISetting(SectionName, "LostConfirm", LostConfirm, "hspi_bt.ini")
    hs.Plugin("BT Connector").scanner.Devices(SectionName).ReloadConfig()
    Exit For
    End If
    Next
    End Sub
    Does this work when using the Widcomm stack?

    I have set this up and there are no errors in the log. But the Poll Time is not being changed?

    How to resolve?

    Thx!

    Bluetooth dongle

    Kind of a newbie with this sort of thing but I'd like to give it a try. Anyone point me to a bluetooth dongle that works? I don't want to spend too much time downloading stuff, etc. Is there a dongle I can buy and it just works? This thread seems to indicate a lot of patches and stacks that I am not familiar with but I guess I'll have to look into it...

    At the beginning of the script, it is stated "VB.NET code"

    However you added a .txt extension to your script filename. Homeseer does not run .txt files as VB.NET. Use the .vb extension for this purpose.

    End If
    Next
    End Sub

    How do I get this to work as I am getting:

    2/26/2012 9:19:20 PM - Error - Running script, script run or compile error in file: BTConnector.txt1025:Expected end of statement in line 3 More info: Expected end of statement


    And yes, I named the file "BTConnector.txt"!

    The event runs a "Run Script":

    "Run script: BTConnector.txt(ConfigureBluetooth(180, 5, X1))"

    Just can't get it to work.

    about to order a new BT dongel to give this plug in a try. Any feedback on what I should order? I'm looking for longer range (100m) vs. shorter. Has anyone tried the latest Beklin unit (F8T017)? Has the high CPU issue noted in this thread been resolved?

    Thanks!

    -Mike

    [QUOTE=mfisher;751821]I'll add that these combinations work:

    D-Link DBT-120 adapter (short range) with Widcom stack v1.4.2 b10
    QUOTE]

    Does the DBT-120 come with the Widcom stack or do you have to get the Widcom stack seperately? I bought the D-link DBT-120 and installed it. It came with a Toshiba bluetooth stack that won't work with the HS bluetooth plug-in.
