Recording Video from 4 x Hero5 Session cameras over WiFi

Hello,

 

I've got 4 Hero5 Session cameras and I need to record video from all 4 of them over WiFi (at the same time).

Is this possible with GoPro Quik for Desktop? If not, is there any other software that can do that?

 

As the recording will last for 2-3 hours, and the battery is probably going to die, is it possible for me to have

them powered/charging the whole time, or would that be an problem?

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Best,

 

RapidShade

Hey @rapidshade,

 

You can have the cameras power from an outside source, however you will not be able to control the cameras with Quik for Desktop. I would recommend checking out the Smart Remote as you can have up to 50 cameras connected at once:

Hope that helps!

 

Cheers,
