    I am new in developing with bloototh. With a bluetooth remote control (maybe a low budget standard photo-shutter), I would like to initiate a phone call to a preset number.
    It is important that my App is calling this number, when the user is pressing a bluetooth-button

    I think I need a little help bevore I spend weeks in learning bluetoth without success.

    My most important question:
    Is that what I want possible?

    If someone has already done with success, which is the best way?
    - which library
    - is there a special port to listen if the button of the shutter was pressed

    I have already tried some libraries (in a activity, no service) . The problems was
    - with BLE-library my shutter device was not discovered (another fitness-tracker was discovered)
    - the connection was disconnected after pairing
    - pressing the button was never detected.

    At moment I use this device:
    Hama Q-Pic Selfie Shooter Bluetooth

    Thank you very much

    You will need to find a Bluetooth device that uses BLE or SPP profile. Another option is to use an audio device and intercept the media key press intent.
