How to Write a Python Script to Turn Bluetooth On?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To write a Python script to turn Bluetooth on, you can use the subprocess module to execute system commands. Here’s an example script that works on Linux:

import subprocess

# Execute the command to turn Bluetooth on
subprocess.run(['rfkill', 'unblock', 'bluetooth'])

This script runs the rfkill unblock bluetooth command, which unblocks the Bluetooth radio on most Linux systems. Note that this command may require root privileges to run, so you may need to run the script as root or with sudo.

If you’re running the script on a different operating system (such as Windows or macOS), you’ll need to find the appropriate command to turn Bluetooth on. Here are a few examples:

  • Windows: subprocess.run(['powershell', 'Start-Process', 'bthprops.cpl'])
  • macOS: subprocess.run(['sudo', 'defaults', 'write', '/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth', 'ControllerPowerState', '1'])

These commands may also require additional privileges or configuration to run, so be sure to test them carefully before deploying them in a production environment.
