FWIW, I found what I think is the perfect "trusted BT" device. My Motoactv sports watch.

I love this idea. I didn't even think about the ACTV. Unfortunately I don't always use that as my daily watch but this might push me over the edge...

If you have a laptop that has bluetooth you can also use that for your trusted device. This would be perfect for at home or work if you carry your laptop around. HTH

Yes, I want this feature. There is already an app called "Unlock with Wi-Fi" that does this, but it would interfere with the trusted bluetooth on the Moto X. Trusted Wi-Fi should work with the MAC address of the access point, the SSID should not matter. If you have multiple access points at work you would have to add any that you want to be trusted. When I was using the Unlock app, they only one I set as trusted at work was the one near my desk. Even though the rest of the buildings had the same SSID, the phone would only unlock when I was at my desk, so it was quite secure.

Has anyone tried the 'Delayed Unlock trial' to see if it would work.  Never
used it but just about it on Google+.

A trusted wifi would meet perfectly my needs: a trusted wifi at home and work.



Bluetooth pairing is a great concept...when it actually works. But for me, it's buggy enough to be useless. :(



1) I managed to pair my workstation with my moto x (using a special bluetooth adapter I ordered), but it didn't work at first, and I had to do a little bluetooth restart dance (the online customer service told me to try that)



2) It doesn't work at all with my chromebook pixel (the bluetooth connection resets after 1-2 seconds, so the phone locks).



3) It doesn't work with some other windows 8 laptop at home (though the laptop is bluetooth enabled, they just don't see each other, seems like a weird compatibility issue. I explicitly ask the laptop to make itself visible of course; and the same on the phone. They just don't play together)



I wish that some Motorola engineer would provide this feature, or a third party app. Talking about apps, does anyone know some app that implements this? Saw an app "Unlock with WiFi" (mentioned above) but that was just a youtube videos collection, not an actual tool :-/

Unlock with WiFi is an APP. It is available on Google Play (free trial and
paid version)

I have using the paid version of wifi unlock for a long time now.  It works great at home and my office. I think there is a trial version.

Hmm. Nevermind. I had another device manager installed. I uninstalled that, then installed the "Bluetooth and Wifi Unlocker" app, and it just works. Sweet!

I have an HP laptop and I cannot get it to work as a trusted device.  I can get it paired with the phone, but it seems like it goes to sleep or something.  It doesn't maintain an active connection.





The only devices (that I own) that work as trusted devices are bluetooth headsets and speakers. I.e. audio devices.  I don't really want to leave my phone connected to an audio device all the time as I don't want to have to find my jawbone to make/answer calls or use my speaker as a speakerphone.  As soon as I uncheck Media Audio or Phone Audio for the device, they drop offline.



Even products like the zomm are really small speakerphones. I don't want to have to take my keys out to make a call.  Smart watches look like they would work, but $150 or more is a lot for phone unlocking situation.



Trusted wifi would be a better solution for non-car situations.
