wake on voice on hero 7 turns camera on randomly.

Hi has anybody got this working correctly? i have had to turn it off as when its on the camera just turns on and starts recording ramdomly. then when i want ot use it i have a flat battery and videos of the wall or something equally exciting.

 

I had this issue amongst others when i had a hero 6 (that i ultimatly had to return)

 

Its not really a deal breaker i'm happy with the rest of the camera (apart from the battery door - i've covered in another post) but as its advertised as a feature i would have though i shouldn't have to turn it off to get normal use from the camera.

Re: wake on voice on hero 7 turns camera on randomly.

hi,

 

I usually activate "Wake on Voice" only when I really need it.

 

left on the table when I'm watching TV, movies, listen to music, sometimes yes start to record.

 

the voice recognition is not 100% accurate.

but it very handy as a "remote" control.

 

just me,

robert
