    I work in an area where bluetooth is not allowed. Is there a way for me to turn it off on the MoVi M5?
    Thanks

    Hi Paul:
    AFAIK there is no way to turn Bluetooth off.

    I'm not sure it meets your requirements but you might consider wrapping the control unit in aluminum foil to act as a Faraday screen and block the BT signal.

    I’ll try it and see what happens. If sensors don’t see the signal I’ll be OK. Thanks for the tip!

    Another thing you might try is copper mesh -- you can get it from Art Supply companies. For example: https://www.dickblick.com/products/...MIr4T8nbut1wIVyIV-Ch05UwCFEAQYAiABEgJmqPD_BwE

    Just make sure that it completely encloses the control unit and antenna. You can fold the edges to form a seal.
