Bluetooth Device Search TimeOut Timer

Im using a bluetooth search to detect devices in range and get their name, however, if the devices go out of range or are weakly detected, I suspect that they take longer for the device.getFriendlyName(true); method to return the device name and in some cases it returns null as it cannot determine the name.


I dont want these weakly detected devices to delay the search by taking longer to return the name or null, and would like a timeout that stops the attempted method after a certain time, 5 seconds for example. i am new to timers and will continue to investigate this, can  this be reasonably accomplished?
