To make use of the Dual Audio and Remote Controls you will need:

- Have the Dual Audio setting enabled
- Make sure the software (SDK) loads
1) Check your microphone
You will need to use one of the IRIS Connect Bluetooth microphones that look like this:
2) Ensure Dual Audio is on
Android the Dual Audio setting can be off or on for the remote controls to work.
3) Check the software loads and that the mic is paired
To confirm the microphone is paired correctly (the microphone icon is green)
and this pop-up will show when you first open the app/pair the microphone
If you dont see the pop-up or if it shows as Connected: false then the controls wont work. Try restarting the microphone and the app. From our testing, most Android devices have worked fine with the software. Please contact the support team if you need assistance

Remote control features
If you are using one of our IRIS Connect Bluetooth microphones and ensure the requirements are met, then you will be able to do the following via clicking the button on the microphone:
- Start recording
- Add a notable moment (timestamped comment)
- Stop the recording
1) Start recording - Double Click
To start recording from your microphone, make sure you are logged into the app, and the microphone is turned on and paired (it will be showing a single blue flash every 5 seconds) then double-click the button on the microphone to start recording.
2) Add a notable moment/time-stamped comment - Single Click
When recording if you want to add a timestamp to your timeline, click the button once. You will see a pop-up on the device the microphone is paired to.
On your recording, you will see a comment added to the timeline. They will be linked to the time in the recording when you clicked the button.
You can edit these notable moments just like any standard comment
For more information about commenting click here.
3) Stop recording - Double Click
To stop recording, double-click the microphone button. You will then see the save/delete menu.
If you are using one of our IRIS Connect Bluetooth microphones and ensure the requirements are met, then you will be able to capture two audio sources during your recording, one from the Bluetooth Microphone and one from the device's internal microphone.
WARNING! Disconnections when using Dual Audio Mode
If the Bluetooth microphone disconnects at any point during the recording then only audio up until the disconnection will be recorded. The rest of that audio track will be silent, even if the microphone reconnects.You will still have the internal microphone audio, but if you expect a lot of disconnections, for example, if you are recording outside, you can turn Dual Audio off under the camera settings of the Record app. This will mean you will only have one audio track but the advantage of the single audio mode is the Bluetooth microphone's audio will be recorded if it reconnects after a disconnection.
To change audio tracks on a recording with dual audio use the 'select audio track' button on the video player
