btmgmt(1) interactive bluetooth management tool. The tool issues commands to the Kernel using the Bluetooth Management socket, some commands may require net-admin capability in order to work since the Bluetooth Management interface is considered a low-level interface meant for the likes of bluetoothd(8), it is not recommended for applications to use it directly as it may result in unexpected behavior.

Two common ways to automate the tool are to pass the commands directly like in the follow example:

Or create a script and pass it as init-script:

$ btmgmt --init-script=test-script
