Smart Remote Emulation

[ New ]

Is there a way to use a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Beagle Bone, ... to emulate a Smart Remote?  I used one thread on Pi code but after 15 minutes the link froze and I had to reset the GoPro manually.  I need to remotely do some basic functions on the HERO8.  I need to Wake up, Start Video Recording, Give feedback that it is recording, Stop Recording, Turn Off, Give feedback that it is off.  Then wait to do that all over again.  This seems be everything the Smart Remote does but there isn't a digital interface to it (short of putting a camera on the display and solinoids over the buttions).
