Right now, this is probably a feature request. Quite simply, the code for detecting and implementing this action does not exist, and likely won't appear until a bug has been filed and a fix released.

Questions about bugs and feature requests are off-topic because they cannot be resolved via Q&A. For more information on how to report issues, see How can I report an issue with elementary OS to the developers?

  • Use the file a bug link from the linked answer, and select "elementary OS" from the dropdown (since bluetooth doesn't really exist there yet). – Lewis Goddard Sep 6 '15 at 17:40
