Bluetooth Proximity Locking
"Add security to your desktop by automatically locking and unlocking the screen when you and your phone leave/enter the desk. Think of a proximity detector for your mobile phone via bluetooth."
I've been using blueproximity for a while now and recommend it to anyone that is sick of typing passwords all day... I started using it after getting sick of typing my password all day long. The work day consisted of 1) login 2) need more coffee, ctrl-alt-l 3) get coffee 4) repeat. Setup and configuration is fairly straightforward:
yum install blueproximity
- Pair your bluetooth device: (GnomeBluetooth)
- Start blueproximity:
- Scan for devices, select your device:
- Scan for open channels, select one:
- Adjust proximity settings to your liking:
You could also configure what commands to run other then the defaults via the "Locking" tab. Enjoy!
