Turning Off Smart Remote Only?

[ Edited ]

I'd like to know if there is a way to just turn off the Smart Remote after the Hero7 Black is turned on with it? At times during longer video sessions it would be nice to turn the remote off to save remote battery. Currently, if I turn off the remote, it turns off the camera. Thanks, Ray

Re: Turning Off Smart Remote Only?

Hello @greensand10612. The only time that a Smart Remote can turn off without turning off the camera is when the two are not paired. There is no way to turn the Smart Remote off without affecting the camera.

That's too bad........ Not as smart as I thought or at least should be. I'm quickly finding out how basic this remote really is. Thanks for letting me know. 👍😊

Thank you!! It works......... I just came across the following video tutorial that shows this and other functions of the Smart Remote. Thanks again for the help. Ray Smiley Happy
