Setting up Bluetooth on Mac

IMPORTANT: Check the list of supported devices before using Bluetooth connections.

Bluetooth can be difficult to get working sometimes. Usually this is due to the fact computers and smartphones use many different implementations of Bluetooth. However, with Macs this is generally not a problem. Note Bluetooth connections from iOS is not supported at the moment (due to limitations imposed by Apple).

1. Prepare your device

First, make sure your Android device is discoverable. Open Settings > Bluetooth.

2. Enable Bluetooth

Make sure Bluetooth is enabled in System Preferences. Open System Preferences and click "Bluetooth".

3. Pair your device

Select your Android device in the list. If it isn't visible then open "Bluetooth" on your Android device to make sure it's discoverable. Once pairing begins you should receive a popup on your PC and your phone. Verify that the codes are same and proceed.

4. Add the server

Your PC and device should now be paired. Start Unified Remote and add a server. Your PC should appear in the list of detected servers, as a Bluetooth server.

5. Troubleshooting

If any of the above steps don't work, unpair everything and try again. Bluetooth can be tricky sometimes
