Talking [Q] Changing what the button does on a bluetooth photo shutter


I have an "Ashutc Wireless Smartphone Photo RF Remote". Its a bluetooth remote that is supposed to function as a camera button for your phone, so you place your phone on a hard to reach place and then take photos without touching the phone.

Its supposedly compatible with android and iphone, and has two buttons, one for each OS. It pairs with my phone well, but clicking the android shutter button just toggles the flash setting, and clicking the iphone button opens the camera settings.

Does anyone know how I can change what the buttons do, so that I can take pictures?

I'm thinking the Tasker app maybe can be useful with this? But I'm far too clueless about how to use the app and its possibilities.

Did you ever find a solution for this? I'm thinking about buying one of these and re-configuring the buttons for music controls. The small size would make it great to mod into steering wheel music controls for an older car.

Hey there,

I was looking for a similar solution, but with any bluetooth headset.
Got it working via Tasker for any camera app, just have a look here:

Hope I could help. ^^
