Hello, I have a question. 
I have a macro that disables bluetooth at a specified time.

trigger: every day at 11 pm
action: turn off bluetooth


When I add constraint: bluetooth connected to: any device or specific device then macro stops working.

What is required to make this constraint to work?
If this is a macrodroid restriction then for what is this option in constraint for?

Please explain what you want to achieve so we can help you. The constraint prevents macro from running if you have a connected BT device (any or specific).

Does your macro look exactly like this?

If not, please post a screenshot.

So, the purpose for this macro is to turn off bluetooth at a specified time except when my phone is connected to my car.

Yes, my settings looks the same.

When i go to test macro option when the constraint is desabled, macro will work and bluetooth will turn off
when constraint is enabled nothing happens.

You want the constraint to be No device connected because the constraint allows the macro to run only when the condition is true.

Everything works now.

Follow-up:

I have an action to change the volume to 100% with an action constraint bluetooth is connected to my car radio. Problem is even if the phone is disconnected from the car radio volume still increases to 100% unless i turn off bluetooth.

Any ideas?

Does the constraint say "Bluetooth Enabled" or "Device Connected"?
