My Smart Key used to be able to wake up the device, that is if I set 1-press to trigger the camera, even from a locked screen / sleeping phone, I get trigger the camera to open. Great.
But after I updated the device recently, the Smart Key doesn't do anything until I unlock the phone. It cannot wake up the device. So if I want to launch the camera, I have to unlock it first then press the smart key, which is pointless, as I might as well just press on the camera app.
How can I re-enable the Smart Key to wake up the device / trigger the camera from a locked screen / off state? Thank you.
