I have found it does work, with a minor exception.
If you direct the bridge to open/close the lock, it does so via bluetooth and holds on to the bluetooth connection for a short amount of time. During that time, no other bluetooth client can interact with the lock.
This also happens if two people try to command the lock simultaneously from two bluetooth devices – only one will get through and the other gets some sort of error.
If I understand the LEDs on the Bridge correctly, you can determine if the Bridge is hogging the bluetooth connection if the blue led is on.
This is my experience, someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
