Does anyone know how to turn bluetooth on and off from the commandline in SFOS?

I've been rummaging with dbus, so far I discovered this using qdbus:

Code:
[nemo@Sailfish bluetooth]$ qdbus com.jolla.settings /com/jolla/settings/ui org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set hci0 bar baz
Error: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownInterface
Interface hci0 was not found in object /com/jolla/settings/ui
But I guess the problem is that I don't know the name of the bluetooth interface.

Anyone know how to do this? The end goal is to create a script to turn bluetooth on and restart rockpoold afterwards, and launch it as a user script with systemd (currently on fairphone 2 rockpool starts before bluetooth and therefore my pebble doesn't pair when I reboot until I turn on bluetooth and restart rockpool).

It's only a problem for Fairphone 2 though, rockpool works fine on other devices...

To turn bluetooth ON via dbus, you can use;

Code:
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=net.connman /net/connman/technology/bluetooth net.connman.Technology.SetProperty string:"Powered" variant:boolean:true
To turn bluetooth OFF, change true for false at the end of the line;

Code:
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=net.connman /net/connman/technology/bluetooth net.connman.Technology.SetProperty string:"Powered" variant:boolean:false
Taken from an answer given by Schturman with solution from 'coderus' on TJC;
