Do you have to rejam if the the camera power goes off ?
Asked by: nelson
The best practice would be to rejam whenever the camera is turned on again. Alternatively, you can keep the Tentacle Sync attached to the camera and it will automatically resync when turned on again. Using the app will allow you to monitor the devices that are in sync.

I believe you can sync the Zoom F6 to one tentacle so that when unplugged the F6 keeps that time. Can't you then use the same tentacle to jam one camera. 3 cameras, 3 tentacles and 1 F6?
