Auto-Tracking Stand Pro
The Belkin Auto-Tracking Stand Pro is designed for content creators and presenters as the first Apple-certified Works with DockKit accessory. It offers automatic, silent, motorized camera movements using the iPhone’s built-in camera and DockKit’s automated subject tracking technology to follow subjects as they move within the space. It offers 360° of pan and 90° tilt so the subject always remains in frame.
Compatible with iPhone 12 or later with MagSafe, dock the phone onto the Stand Pro and pair it via NFC. It uses both the front and rear cameras of the phone without requiring any third-party software. You can use it with FaceTime, Instagram, TikTok, Canva, WhatsApp, Microsoft Teams, and other social media apps or messaging platforms.
Since it leverages MagSafe, the device also charges the phone at the same time at a rate of up to 15W when the Stand Pro is plugged in using the five-foot USB-C cable and 30W power supply.
