I'm doing application in Android Studio that will scan for devices within reach of a phone. What it does exactly is not important. The problem is, that when I scan for devices, I'd get only the ones that aren't paired. Paired ones are stored in separate list and Android's discovery process automatically skips them. As far as I looked it seems I can't change that.

So I need Bluetooth module that won't be able to get paired with a phone, to be 100% sure the whole project will work correctly.

Is it possible to set a module (like HC-06) to make it unparable?

Can I buy a module like that somewhere? I couldn't find anything.

  • $\begingroup$ I can't tell what your goal is here. Are you trying to make a fake bluetooth module? Something that looks like a bluetooth module but can't be paired? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I made my question a little more detailed. I just need a module that would be only discoverable $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ wouldn't that be literarly almost any cell phone and any blutooth device that requires a passcode for pairing? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Omicron - I don't understand what you're going for here. You're looking for unpaired bluetooth devices, so just don't pair the device. I don't understand how this is an issue. $\endgroup$
