The Botley remote programmer works by “line of sight” infrared. If you’re using multiple Botley’s in a class or group setting, it is recommended to keep them away from one another while programming. Alternatively, you can cover the sensors on the Botley’s you’re not transmitting to. If you require further information please contact the customer service team.
