How do I install REFLEKT Remote on RealWear HMT-1?

Here you find all the information needed to install and use REFLEKT Remote on RealWear HMT-1 glasses.

GENERAL INFO:

 

The REFLEKT Remote app for smart glasses like the RealWear HMT-1 is a "light" version of the product and does not support all features. Smart glasses like the RealWear HMT-1 can be seen as companion devices instead of standalone devices, which means that they need to be paired to a device that runs the full REFLEKT Remote application.

NOTE: If you aren't familiar with RealWear HMT-1, we recommend to read the following paragraph giving you a rough overview of the smart glasses. Otherwise you can jump straight to the DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION section.

 

OVERVIEW OF REALWEAR HMT-1 AND GENERAL FUNCTIONS:

The RealWear HMT-1 glasses are operated completely hands-free. Voice commands can be used to navigate inside the software and control the device. This allows you to use REFLEKT Remote only controlled via voice commands without the need to touch the device at any time.
