       This manual page documents briefly the bluemon command.

       bluemon monitors the quality of the link to a bluetooth device and emits dbus signals when
       it  drops  below  a  given threshold or disconnects. Used with the bluemon-client program,
       This can be used to perform actions like locking the terminal when you walk away from it.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -i           --interval
                 The check interval, in ms.

       -t           --threshold
                 The link quality threshold, out of 255

       -b           --btid
                 The  bluetooth  ID  to  monitor  (e.g. aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff). This parameter may be
                 specified multiple times to monitor multiple devices.

       -s           --stdout           --no-syslog
                 Log to stdout rather than syslog

       -n           --no-fork
                 Do not become a daemon

       -d           --disconnect-hack
                 Enable this if your bluetooth device disconnects regularly while still in range,
                 adds a small delay into noticing device abscence upon disconnect.

       -v           --verbose
                 Enable verbose output

       -q           --link-quality
                 Check  for  link  quality  to  device.  Default  only  checks  for  presence  of

       -h           --help
                 Show summary of options.

       -V           --version
                 print version.
