I have the NightCap Camera app on my IPhone 5s and would like to activate the shutter remotely.  This works fine using the volume buttons on my plugged-in Apple headphones. In contrast, it does not work when I try using a blue-tooth remote made by CAMKIX.  Yet, the CAMKIX does work when I use the camera without NightCap.  It gets even more puzzling.  If I plug in my small Apple headphones and at the same time connect the CAMKIX via blue-tooth, I can activate the shutter with either the CAMKIX or the headphone volume control when using NightCap.  If I instead use a combination of CAMKIX and a headphone that does not have volume control, I cannot activate the shutter with either when using NightCap.   I would greatly appreciate a recommendation for a remote/blue tooth shutter controller that will work with NightCap ( in the absence of an additional plug-in of a headphone).  Thanks for any help.
