    I would like to use a spare Samsung Note 2 phone to help me monitor my home security so I have been running some tests with my Samsung S5 but can't get Tasker BT Near to work.

    I ideally I want my phone to send me an SMS whenever a nominated Bluetooth device is near, even if the phone doesn't connect, so I have created 6 profiles. Two pairs of profiles for each BT device I have at home and the 3rd pair for the BT in my car. One of the two profiles for each device triggers a task that sets a variable, flashes a message and vibrates the phone whenever BT Near is detected; and the other does the same when NOT BT Near. However the only profiles that work, belatedly and unreliably, are the ones linked to the BT in my car, and that's the only BT device that my phone actually connects to. The ones in the home are registered on the phone but not set up to connect.

    Does BT Near actually work? Is there something about Samsung phones perhaps that make it now work?
