I get the warning ‘Unsupported device’. What can I do?

When you have connected both the pocket unit and the headset, and you receive this error message in the Iristick Services application, you should disconnect and reconnect the headset by disconnecting and reconnecting one of both ends of the coaxial cable. The warning should be gone. Otherwise, contact us at support@iristick.com.

There is a lot of noise or echo while using one of the Remote Assistance applications. How can I avoid this?

With remote assistance, it is essential to keep in mind that the microphone on the Iristick or the remote computer (or notebook) can pick up sound that has been played back by the speakers. This makes the sound to loop and causes an echo. You can avoid this by having one of both (or both) sides to use a headset or earpiece.

Can I use the Iristick camera as a default camera for other applications?

No, unfortunately not. This is due to the lack of support for external cameras in Android and its applications. An adjustment to the source code of the specific application is necessary to have the Iristick camera work together with the app.

Do all applications work with the Iristick?

Most of them do, but some will need modification in the source code to either control the Iristick camera or read out the sensors in the headset.

Can I use Skype (for Business) with the Iristick?

No, unfortunately not. Android does not support the use of external cameras out-of-the-box. Any app that wants to utilize the Iristick cameras should implement our SDK.
