Locks/unlocks your desktop tracking a bluetooth device
  18 reviews

Blueproximity helps you adding a little more security to your desktop. It does so by detecting one of your bluetooth devices, most likely your mobile phone, and keeping track of its distance. If you move away from your computer and the distance is above a certain level (no measurement in meters is possible) for a given time, it automatically locks your desktop (or starts any other shell command you want).

Once away, if you return nearer than a given level for a set time your computer unlocks magically without any interaction (or starts any other shell command you want).

The application won't install, citing the "python-support (>= 0.2)" dependency.

Its not the greatest after bluetooth 4 as most bluetooth devices use a power saving mode that almost entirely turns off the bluetooth radio when its not in use. have had my computer lock itself purely because my phone turned it's screen off. if you stay within the confines of the limitations this app has, im sure it can be wonderful. but as an install and go app, there is plenty people would have to change to make this really useful.

Seems to need a bit of work, works fine once you fiddle enough the settings. Fantastic idea with better then expected results.
