Hello, and first off thanks for all the work put into this library. It is making my development much simpler having it in my toolchain. However I am having a problem that I hope may have a solution within this library.

Is there a way to detect unpaired Bluetooth LE devices from within Windows OS or Windows Phone 8.x? I understand that talking to devices that are unpaired is not possible but I am just looking to know what devices are present within the vicinity of the device. The only information that I need is the device's name and ID.

If this is possible, do you know of sample code showing how to execute this?
