Last time, I show how to use pys60 to discover bluetooth devices. Here's another bluetooth snippet, but this time it use pybluez (BT on Linux).
import bluetooth target_name = "My Phone" target_address = None nearby_devices = bluetooth.discover_devices() for bdaddr in nearby_devices: if target_name == bluetooth.lookup_name( bdaddr ): target_address = bdaddr break if target_address is not None: print "found target bluetooth device with address ", target_address else: print "could not find target bluetooth device nearby"Taken from Albert Huang's exellent pybluez tutorial.
