Managing the Bluetooth Service

Learning how to enable or disable the Bluetooth service and add a device name is a basic Bluetooth management skill:

  1. Retrieve a BluetoothAdapter object with the getDefaultAdapter() method:

    var adapter = webapis.bluetooth.getDefaultAdapter();
  2. Enable or disable the Bluetooth adapter using the setPowered() method:

    /* Enable Bluetooth */
    adapter.setPowered(true, function() 
       console.log("Bluetooth powered on successfully.");
    /* Disable Bluetooth */
    adapter.setPowered(false, function() 
  3. Give the device a unique name by using the setName() method.

    The name helps to recognize devices in a list of retrieved active devices.
