Start workflow based on BT proximity or network connection

Hi,

 
I wonder if it would be possible to trigger a workflow based on the proximity of an BT device or based on the current network connection.
 
Some use cases where this might be useful:
  • Start a lock/login workflow on my Macbook each time I leave or return with my iPhone (maybe also Afred Remote?)
  • Setup some apps/documents when I arrive in office and connect with Wi-Fi network
  • Automatically connect with work VPN, if I'm connect with the network at some client's offices.

I'm sure some smart people will have even more cool workflow ideas.

 

 

Cheers,

Nhat

Alfred doesn't normally monitor such things. There are several applications that do provide this type of functionality though. With those, you could set them up to run workflows open state change using applescript to trigger Alfred's external triggers.
