Is there a way to have the gopro wifi active when the camera is switched on? My cameras are connected to an external power source so no issues with battery life.
I am looking to activate all cameras to record at the same time using the wifi remote but for this the wifi needs to be on.

Hello, @rockyboost0710. Which camera models are you using? The camera should be able to keep the Wi-Fi settings even if powered off. For a HERO8 Black camera, for example, setting the Wireless Connections to ON will always have the Wi-Fi enabled even if the camera turns off. This setting will only be changed if manually done so or when a factory reset is performed.

The HERO4 and HERO3+ cameras have the same function, only the operation is different. For this model, you will have to press and hold the settings button on the side of the camera to turn the Wi-Fi on. It is only when this button is pressed and held again the Wi-Fi will be turned off.

Thank you Mariustanya, I understand what you are saying however I would like the WiFi to remain on even when the Hero 3 or 4 is turned off and the battery removed. This is because I use the cameras on external power and in this way the WiFi is not on when power is re-applied. It is not a big issue but it would be nice.
