Bluetooth is a wireless networking technology that uses a low-frequency signal to establish connections between devices within a short range (about thirty feet).
The HP bt500 Bluetooth USB 2.0 wireless adapter helps devices that have Bluetooth capabilities, but are not yet Bluetooth-enabled to send and receive wireless signals. Once the signal is found and the connection is established, you can easily transmit data, including photos, documents, and music, between the devices.
The HP Bluetooth adapter allows you to connect up to seven different devices to a single PC!
The small, easy-to-use HP bt500 Bluetooth wireless adapter offers numerous conveniences. For example, you can:
Instantly connect without a network
Bluetooth offers a fast, inexpensive alternative to traditional wireless networking that often requires a complicated setup. When you use Bluetooth to connect devices you’re creating a wireless network of your own, with no need for one to already be established.
Streamline your workspace
Connect devices such as wireless keyboards and mice to your PC to create a cordless, clutter-free desktop.
Connect multiple devices
With the HP Bluetooth adapter you can connect (or "pair") up to seven different devices to your PC — even if they’re not the same brand.
Enjoy mobile freedom
Often travel for work? Use the HP Bluetooth adapter to easily print on the go and experience wireless convenience without having to carry around extra gadgets.
Print wirelessly from your PC
Wireless printing has never been so easy! Whether you’re printing a report from your home office desktop, or travelling for work, attaching the HP Bluetooth adapter to your PC allows you to access any Bluetooth-enabled printer, like the HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One printer, quickly and without the hassle of wires or setting up a wireless network.
Enjoy mobility at home
Listen to music during a workout in your home gym or while you clean the house by using wireless Bluetooth-enabled headphones, such as HP Bluetooth Stereo headphones. With an HP Bluetooth adapter, the headphones can access a number of media players on your PC, including iTunes and Windows Media Player.
Create a wireless desktop
Eliminate cords and cables and decrease desktop clutter with the HP MoGo X54 Bluetooth Multimedia Mouse. With the switch of a button, the HP MoGo becomes a remote control, allowing wireless playing, pausing, track selection, and volume adjustment on a variety of media devices.
Keep things organized by synchronizing a Bluetooth-enabled PDA, such as the HP iPAQ hx2495b Pocket PC, or cell phone with your PC. Transfer calendars, notes, and photos to ensure your important information is available any time or place you need it.
Print from portable devices or your PC with Bluetooth
Print wirelessly from portable devices in three easy steps:
Attach the HP bt500 Bluetooth adapter to a compatible printer, such as the HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One printer. Now the printer is accessible from a Bluetooth-enabled PDA, camera, camera phone, or laptop.
Once you select what you'd like to print from your "sending device", select the name of the "receiving device" (for example, the HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One printer).
Enter the Passkey*if prompted, and select Print. (These are general instructions. For more detailed information on pairing specific devices, please refer to the manual for that particular device.)
*The Passkey, or PIN, is a simple code used to verify connections between devices. Some devices have a fixed passkey that you can find in the user manual. Other devices allow you to choose your own — just make sure you enter the same code for both devices.
