Blue2 can be paired with any Bluetooth-enabled iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, or Chrome device. Functionality may be limited depending on the device you are pairing with the Blue2. The Blue2 is designed to be “seen” by other devices like a Bluetooth keyboard, therefore the information transmitted from the Blue2 to a device is a keyboard keystroke. For example, Mode 1 of the Blue2 sends a “space bar” when pressing the white switch (or switch labeled S1) and “enter key” for the orange switch (or S2).
Steps for Pairing with a Bluetooth-capable Device
Turn Blue2 on using the on/off switch.
Press the pairing button on Blue2 one time.
In your devices Bluetooth® settings, find and select BLUE2.
Repeatedly tap the mode button on Blue2 to select a mode.
Set up any settings for your chosen method of switch access within the app or through accessibility options on the device you paired with Blue2.
Blue2 is now ready for use with your device and/or app.

How many switches can I use with Blue2?
The Blue2 has two built-in switches, one white and one orange. These switches can be used to active two independent functions in any of the six available modes. You may also opt to connect an alternative switch to the Blue2. This can be done by using either (or both) of the 3.5mm connections on the back of the Blue2.
Please note: any switch that is connect to the Blue2 will emulate the same function as the built-in switches. They cannot be assigned independent functions.
How long does the Blue2's battery last?
The average battery life of the Blue2 is found to be 13 hours with general use.
How Often Should I Charge the Blue2?
For optimum performance and battery life, we recommend charging your Blue2 overnight after each day of use.
How do I configure Blue2 with my communication app?
There are many applications in the marketplace for all of the supported hardware types of the Blue2. We recommend finding an application that will work with keyboard keystrokes (see "Pairing Details" section for additional information). Most apps built with accessibility in mind are very intuitive in terms of setup, but if you find an app that you like, we recommend accessing the user's manual for accessibility for details on available features and options within the app.
