Additional Info

More Details

Hook Plus is an Apple MFi approved switch interface that provides a wired connection to an iDevice (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) via the Lightning connector. Once Hook Plus is connected and Switch Control is configured, the user can control an iDevice with a compatible switch.

To get started, connect compatible (Maximum 4) switches to Hook Plus, turn Switch Control on, and connect Hook Plus to your iDevice.

Hook Plus utilises the Apple auto switch configurator and the first time Hook Plus is used with an iDevice it will automatically configure the iDevice to use single switch auto scanning or dual switch step scanning based on how many switches are connected to Hook Plus . Once initially configured, switches can be manually re-configured to meet the needs of the user. The Apple auto switch configurator is only available on Apple MFi approved switch interfaces.

Product Features:
* Lightning connector provides a reliable wired connection
* Utilises Apple auto switch configurator
* Hook Plus does not have an internal battery and can be used as long as the iDevice has a battery charge
* Connect one to four individual switches via 3.5-mm/1/8-in switch jacks. With iOS 9, you are able to program two unique commands per switch for a total of eight different switch commands
* Use the battery pass through on Hook Plus to charge your iOS device while using Hook Plus

Compatible with:
iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini, iPod touch (5th generation)
