The pairable timeout in seconds. A value of zero
means that the timeout is disabled and it will stay in
pareable mode forever.
uint32 DiscoverableTimeout [rw]
The discoverable timeout in seconds. A value of zero
means that the timeout is disabled and it will stay in
discoverable/limited mode forever.
