NAME
btdevctl -- Bluetooth remote device control utility
SYNOPSIS
btdevctl [-A | -D] [-qv] [-m mode] -a address -d device -s service
DESCRIPTION
The btdevctl utility is used to configure bluetooth devices in the sys- tem. Normally, btdevctl will perform an SDP query to the remote device as needed, and cache the results in the /var/db/btdevctl.plist file for later use. If neither Attach nor Detach is specified, btdevctl will dis- play the configuration. The options are: -A Attach device -a address Remote device address. The address may be given as BDADDR or a name. If a name was specified, btdevctl attempts to resolve the name via bt_gethostbyname(3). -D Detach device -d device Local device address. May be given as BDADDR or device name. -m mode Connection link mode. The following modes are supported: none clear previously set mode. auth require devices be paired, see btpin(1). encrypt auth, plus enable encryption. secure encryption, plus change of link key. When configuring the HID service, btdevctl will set `auth' by default, or `encrypt' for keyboard devices. If the device cannot handle authentication, then the mode will need to be cleared manually. -q Ignore any cached data and perform a SDP query for the given service. -s service Service to configure. Known services are: HID Human Interface Device. HF Handsfree. HSET Headset. -v Be verbose. For device configurations to persist across boots, add entries to the /etc/bluetooth/btdevctl.conf file and ensure the rc.conf(5) variable bluetooth is set to YES.
