Hisy is a Bluetooth camera shutter remote that aims to help people take pictures to the next level, by enabling them to take selfies up to 90 feet away, instead of being limited to the range of their outstretched arm. The device is a great solution for those who wish their arms were a little longer so they can get everyone in the shot and those who always drop their phone or find it difficult to press the shutter button while holding it with one hand.

Hisy lets the photographer take great pictures from a distance, never leaving anyone out of the image, and being part of group photos while still being in control of snapping the shot. They can also enhance the experience by setting their camera to video mode and recording video from a distance with the single press of a button.

The wireless smartphone camera remote is compatible with Apple iOS 7.0 and later on iPhone, iPad and iPod devices. The tiny shutter remote doesn’t require the download of a third-party app, unlike other similar gadgets, as it links with Bluetooth and works with the default camera app on iOS.


Hisy aims to make taking a selfie or group shot effortless and its long range means there is no need to set the timer and quickly run back to try to get in a photo. The gadget’s battery lasts up to two years and after a certain number of minutes Hisy will go into sleep-mode to save battery life.

Hisy is available to purchase online for $24.99, and this includes a foldable stand, a one year warranty, and a headphone jack attachment to carry with you at all times. There is a range of five colors to choose from; black, white, pink, aqua and neon green.

Hisy offers solutions to a number of niggling selfie-taking problems. It is simple and easy to set-up and use in just a few moments, and is a great gadget for all ages.
