Screen On, Screen Off

April 23, 2011

Following a guide on Ubuntu Forums, I set up a program called BlueProximity that detects the distance my phone is away and when my phone reaches a certain distance, locks my computer. When my phone gets close enough, it unlock it again! That’s really cool :). I have it set up so when I walk out of the room my computer locks and when I walk back in it unlocks. How convenient!
