Yes, when connected, the Smart Remote can Start/Stop Recording of up to 50 compatible GoPro cameras at the same time.

smart-remote/manuals

 

Pick the first camera and turn it on.
Navigate to the”Wireless” menu under “Setup”.
Select “Rem Ctrl” and then select “New”.
The camera will now enter the “Pairing” mode for the next 3 minutes.
Turn On the Smart Remote.
When the Wi-Fi symbol is displayed on the screen of the Smart Remote, press and hold the “Settings” button on the remote.
When the remote screen starts displaying two arrows moving towards each other, you can release the button as the remote is now in pairing mode.
Now, the remote and the camera are both in pairing mode, they will pair quickly. Once the procedure is done, the Smart Remote will ask to pair another , select “Yes”
Pick a new camera and repeat step 1 to 4 for each new camera you wish to add.
