Powering the IrisVision using the USB Type-C port2020-01-13T13:10:20+00:00

This power port can be used if you want to use the product for extensive and continuous use beyond what the built-in battery can provide. You can use an external battery as a source of power. This method does not charge the built-in battery but provides an alternative source to operate the device.

NOTE: This method of powering the device can sometimes cause it to overheat. In the case that it does overheat unplug the charging cable.

Wired Charging Instructions2020-01-13T13:10:52+00:00

As an alternative, you may use the cable from the wireless charger with the micro USB type C adapter, included with the wireless charging pad. Plug it into the Display Unit after removing the Display Unit from the headset and then plug into a outlet. By using this method the Display Unit will charge faster, usually within one hour. Please note, we do not recommend plugging Display Unit into a computer to charge.


NOTE: The IrisVision’s battery lasts 3 to 4 hours. It can last 3+ hours with continuous use, and all day (8 to 10 hours) on standby. You can make the most of this time by powering the device off during activities when you are not using it.

Setting up Wi-Fi connection to my IrisVision2020-01-13T13:12:45+00:00

IrisVision can be configured to connect to your Wi-Fi. A Wi-Fi connection allows our Tech Support team to assist you more efficiently.

Step 3: Configure Wi-Fi

Tap the Apps icon located at the bottom of the home screen. Next, tap Settings, then Connections.

At the top of the Connections Menu, tap WiFi. Turn Wi-Fi on, then select your home or office Wi-Fi network.

If you need to enter a password to access that network, do so now. It is recommended that you also select Auto Reconnect so that your device remembers this network in the future. Once the IrisVision display unit has connected to Wi-Fi, you will be ready to proceed to the next step.

Step 4: Connecting Display Unit with Headset

The headset has a connector and a clip with two positions: A & B. For the current model of IrisVision, it should remain in the B position. Also notice the small lock/unlock switch. The switch should always remain in the lock position.

Insert the headset’s connector into the display unit’s connector. Gently push the display unit down into the mount until the clip snaps into place.

You will hear a confirmation tone from the display unit if the headset and display unit are connected properly. Once connected, the IrisVision headset is ready to use.
