Hero 4

Do I have to power off WiFi on hero4 every time I want to turn camera off? I have a hero4 and 5 I use while hunting and I have a remote for each and I hit the power button on the 5 and it will turn on and start recording and same for when I want to turn off I don’t have to turn WiFi off. But my 4 if I don’t go into settings and turn WiFi off the blue light blinks and kills battery and while hunting that is just too much moving around and not quick. HELP!! Please

Hi @rossmcmurry53,

 

 

Yes you have to turn it off. 

 

You can use the Wireless connection button though. 

 

On HERO4 you can just press the Wireless connection button to turn it on or off. 

On HERO5 you have to manually turn it off on settings. 

Or you can also navigate and go t settings on HERO4 and turn it off.
