A suggestion for the BlueWatch software.  IF POSSIBLE, give the user the option to not have the little popup window show when a device is discovered or lost.

I'll see about getting that added for next release Dan, Thanks!  ;)

I just installed (upgraded to) 4.7 today (I just can't catch-up). BlueWatch has really turned into a professional piece of VERY useful software. GREAT JOB Tuice Man>!

I would have suggested you waited to update Dave but I was having an issue with the time triggers.
Seems every thing just fell into place this afternoon! rofl

Tuice, tried to install version 5 tonight and now when I try to run it I get the "BlueWatch has encountered a problem and needs to close...."  The first time I just installed it on top of the old version.  I thought that I may have needed to uninstall the old version first, but I did that, re-installed 5 and still get the error.

Sorry everyone :-[
Had for gotten to include a dll in the installer.
I've put a new installer on the server.
Looks like there is a bug with the BWSettings.XML file as well! B:(
So you'll have to delete that file before you execute BlueWatch then reconfigure your startup options. :-[
Guess I was in to big of a hurry to get to PC Companions weather issue. ::) :'

Tuicemen,

Any progress on getting Bluewatch to work with the iphone?

I have looked at xping but it doesnt have the same features as BW.
It also suffers from the same problem - the connection seems to drop out when the iphone goes into sleep/keylock mode.

Since I don't have an iphone I can't test with the other drivers I'm playing with right now. :(
I'm thinking if it goes into a sleep mode and even IP Ping can't see it then me adding the network ping option won't work for you. ::) :(
Bluetooth pinging maybe the only viable option for getting an iphone to report steady. ::)
I'm still playing with the blueTooth ping.
Adding it to BlueWatch means a total rewrite of the program . :(
I want to make sure it is going to work constantly before I go that route. :'

I now have all PCs here rigged with their own mni BT dongle!
Amazing how they can pack a class 1 into this little package
For that price every thing should have it built in! :D

So are the PCs networked... and are you triangulating the postion of the cell phone to determind room location.. or anything like that?

I haven't played with anything like that. I'd probably need a class 3 BT device to do something like that  ???  I haven't seen any class 3 devices on the market,  -:) maybe an antenna mod to reduce distance will be in the works!
Since my place is small and all dongles are class 1 they easily see each other. Right now the PC aren't linked via BT but they are networked. I've even added one to my notebook and it is small enough that I can leave it plugged in and not worry about breaking it off.  ;)

PROGRAM SUGGESTION:

Another suggestion for the software.  When the notification pop up window is disabled, Can you have it show the device name in the list with different colors based on weather the device is detected or not.  Maybe you could have it show black when in range, and red when out of range.

I also have a question, When BW is running and devices are in range, should it be sending the x10 command for the device being detected every time it scans, or is it supposed to only send it when it senses it in range or goes out of range?  If it sends it every time it scans, maybe you could have it only send when it recognizes a change of state.  Currently mine is sending the x10 command every 10 seconds which is what I have the scan interval set for.

Thanks

I'll look at the color options. It would mean not needing the info screen! ;)
BlueWatch should only be sending commands when first seen and first detected out of range.
I'll look into it, maybe its because you have the notification window disabled. :-[
