Shortcuts - Don't trigger when connected to xyz bluetooth

So I had an issue where my day job automation’s were triggering because my side job has me driving past my office quite a few times in a shift. I managed to use a start/end time to resolve the problem so the day job triggers only work between 7am and 10am but it’s a shame there isn’t a way to say:

“Trigger at this location provided you are not connected to the car bluetooth (I don’t drive to work)”


Shortcut automation does/doesn’t trigger based on connection to specific bluetooth
Shortcuts to add days of the week to the time options in personal automation.

If you use the excellent Pushcut app you can set a delay on a location trigger.

For example, once you arrive at a geo location you can configure Pushcut so that the Shortcut only runs if you’re still in that location a minute or two later. If you’re just driving past, then the Shortcut wouldn’t trigger (assuming you’re not stuck in traffic outside your office).

I hope this helps.

p.s. This is one of the use cases that I talked about when I was a guest on Automators.
