Bluetooth Dongle not automatically Pairing with BlueSmirf

Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:08 am


I've setup Bluetooth on my RaspPi and attempted to connect to my BlueSmirf from sparkfun.

I can send text to my BlueSmirf from the RaspberryPi using: echo "Testing" > /dev/rfcomm0

Now the red led on my BlueSmirf indicates its not paired with a device, only when I use cat /dev/rfcomm0 the raspberryPi will start a Pairing session with the BlueSmirf (and the led turns green).

I now can send and receive text from both sides, the problem is that I manually need to invoke cat /dev/rfcomm0. I would like that the RaspberryPi looks for my BlueSmirf at startsup and starts a pairing session automatically.

Created of the ArduinoPi, a PHP/Python API for controlling an Arduino with the Raspberry Pi.
