Bluetooth has been used as a proximity sensor because of its feature: it can search nearby device within 10 meter. However, searching all the time consumes huge battery. In this paper, we introduce the Bluetooth controlling method that depends on user's context. We predict user's context using accelerometers and microphones on smartphone in the method. Finally, we show how much we can reduce power consumption.
