Can you turn the GoPro Hero 5 Black On with a Remote App, or any of the smart remotes etc?

I have a Hero 5 Black and am looking for something that can power it ON from fully off via remote.  Whether this is a remote or an app I don't really mind.

 

Suggestions, thoughts, greatly welcomed.

 

Regards,

Julian Maytum

Hello @jmaytum

 

The Smart Remote Control would serve the purpose you have in mind. It can work for up to a distance of 600’ (180m) in optimal conditions And will stay paired to the camera even after both devices have been turned off. 

 

Cheers,
