The wireless UE Boom 2 can be remotely powered on/off through the UE MEGABOOM iPhone app and that's very useful in some cases.

It would be great to be able to do the same but from a MacBook, but Logitech didn't release such an app for macOS. I believe this should technically be feasible from any device with a Bluetooth 4 + LE device (which my MBP Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014 has).

Would you know how this could be achieved, through a Bluetooth software or script?

What I found so far:

This is what my Mac shows for the UE in System Information > Bluetooth

I've tried LightBlue but it can't show the available services for the UE:

  • Let's see where this goes to. As long as we are looking at tools/ways accessible to the end user, the question is fine here. If answers tend to require ObjC programming we can migrate it to StackOverflow.
