bluelock.pl 0.5

Lock a screen once a bluetooth device's RSSI increases
bluelock.pl is a Perl script designed to lock a display or terminal once a Bluetooth device (like a cell phone) is out of range. The script queries the RSSI (signal strength) of a Bluetooth device. Once the RSSI passes above a certain threshold a timer is started, and once the timer expires a locking program is run.

Usage: bluelock.pl BDADDR
