BLU2Lite GoPro Camera Status

How does it work?

Paired over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) the BLU2Lite regularly receives status updates from the camera and updates it's three status LED. GoPro Inc.'s BLE implementation is super reliable.

The BLU2Lite was designed to use very little power, and you will not notice a difference in battery life of your camera.†

Warranty information


† GoPro HERO5 and HERO5 Session will see shorter battery life as Wi-Fi remains enabled. For other cameras, BLE uses minute amount of power and therefore battery life will not be changed. 
‡ On the GoPro HERO10 and up non v30 speed cards will report a warning. 
* When turning on the camera after 8 hours of inactivity, the Gopro Camera is in a deep sleep and a full boot occurs. Within 8 hours, the camera leaves the Bluetooth module on and is a suspended state. Therefore, it will take slightly longer to connect after 8 hours of inactivity as we need to wait for the camera to fully boot up. Additionally, some cameras are severely bogged down while recording. It may take additional time to connect if QuickCapture is used (aka One Button Mode.)
