Pairing with MacOS devices

If it is possible to pair an Aranet4 device with a device running MacOS, how does one do it?
I have a 2021 M1 Pro MacBook Pro (bluetooth 5) and the Aranet4 never appears in the Bluetooth devices panel. My device pairs and works with my iOS device flawlessly.
The Python library Pyaranet4 suggests that the device can pair with MacOS devices. Part of my motivation for purchasing this device was to use this library to programatically process the sensor data.

The Aranet4 can be paired, please try these steps:
- Take out batteries of the Aranet4 device;
- Set jumper switch in the battery compartment for Bluetooth service in OFF (down) position, then back to ON (Up) position;
- Put batteries in the correct polarization again inside the Aranet4 (both batteries in the same direction with + pole on the left side);
If you continue to struggle you can also write to us to the Support email firstname.lastname@example.org ,

Thank you. I have tried removing the batteries, resetting the bluetooth jumper as advised, and replacing the batteries in the correct orientation. I still cannot see the Aranet4 in the bluetooth devices menu nor pair with it. The link you have provided points to the same code to which I originally linked. I will contact support by email. Thanks

I'm having the same issue as well. Did you have any luck finding a way pair the Aranet4 to your mac?

Unpairing or disabling Bluetooth on a paired phone helped, but ultimately I wrote a Bluetooth client for the aranet4 which triggers pairing itself with the nearest aranet4 if not already paired. But yes, problem solved : )
