The Remote Control has different functions depending on the application the Pod is connected with. Manual controls are also possible as long as the Auto Tracking feature is turned off.
Connected to the Pivo+ app
When the Pivo Pod is connected to the Pivo+ app, the Remote Control has limited functionality.
Up/Down buttons - Zoom in/out of the photo, video and meet
+ button - Captures a photo or start/stop recording a video
II button - (Only available for Face Tracking) To select the tracking target if there are multiple faces on the screen
*Note: This feature is currently not available. It will be implemented in future. This article will be updated as soon as the feature is added to the app.
M button - Click on this to reset tracking. This allows you to reset the Pivo Pod to a position where it first started tracking the target. This is useful when Pivo loses tracking and is unable to pick up the target again.
Not connected to the Pivo+ app (connected to other Pivo apps)
When the Pivo Pod is not connected to the Pivo+ app, you can manually control the Pod with the following Remote Control commands:
Up/Down buttons - Increase/decrease the rotation speed of the Pivo Pod
Left/Right buttons - Manually rotate the Pivo Pod towards the left/right
Rewind/Fast Forward buttons - Manually start a 360 degrees rotation of the Pivo Pod
+ button - Capture a photo or start/stop recording a video
II button - Pause the rotation
Pivo's Remote Control has a working range of up to 50 ft/15 m. For optimal performance, it's best to make sure there is a clear, unobstructed path between your Pivo Pod and the Remote Control.
The Remote Control uses replaceable 3V coin-type batteries (CR1632). Two batteries are included in the Remote Control. Carefully remove the batteries' protective plastic strips before pairing to the Pivo Pod.
