Bluetooth shutter remote for an android smartphone?

Posted on
  • Dear all,

    Did anyone managed to use the puck.js as a shutter remote? (such as this: https://youtu.be/a51dq-WwNKs

    )

    Thank you.

  • It should be easy enough to do with http://www.espruino.com/Puck.js+Keyboard¬≠

    Probably all you need to do is send something like a space or return keypress to convince the camera to take a picture, but even if it needs to send a custom report descriptor that could be done too.

  • Thanks @Gordon!
    I just tried with

    var controls = require("ble_hid_controls");
    NRF.setServices(undefined, { hid : controls.report });
    function btnPressed() {
      controls.playpause();
    }
    setWatch(btnPressed, BTN, {edge:"rising",repeat:true,debounce:50})­;
    

    and it works like charm!
