Connecting to Bolt via Blueooth



We’re working on a project where we’re trying to connect to the Lockitron Bolt from a device other than an Android/iOS device using this script: https://gist.github.com/pbnjay/a2c6100f87d0e4c8fb0a629f67e2c856

We’ve had luck connecting to the device, but it appears as though at some point a security handshake is failing and the lock/unlock commands are not actually sending.

We were hoping to get some guidance on how we’re supposed to obtain the correct key to send, and if there is any spec in terms of encrypting it, etc.

We’re working on a tight schedule and not sure if we will even be able to get our hands on a Bridge in time to be able to use the web API as an alternative, so getting this functionality to work will be our best bet here.

Any guidance or suggestions would be appreciated.
