Frequently Asked Questions

Why a Knob?

It's intuitive and convenient. Because you can click and you can turn it, PowerMate Bluetooth can perform many more functions with a simple interface than a mouse can.

It glows? Why does it glow?

Right. The LEDs in the knob's base can be programmed to glow or pulse, to give you system or app status at a glance. Also, it looks very, very cool.

Program? Do I have to be a programmer to use it?

No. But with the included PowerMate Manager software, you'll feel like a programmer. Choose PowerMate actions for the Manager's menus to assign specific functions in the OS or in your apps. Combine the clicks and spins to perform complex or repetitive actions. You can even assign AppleScript actions to trigger whole sequences of other actions.

What's it compatible with?

PowerMate Bluetooth requires Mac OS X 10.8 or higher, and Bluetooth 4.0. Compatible Macintosh machines that support the Bluetooth 4.0 protocol include:

  • Mid-2011 Macbook Air or newer
  • Mid-2012 Macbook Pro or newer
  • Late 2012 iMac or newer
  • Mid-2011 Mac mini or newer
  • 2013 Mac Pro or newer

There are third-party USB dongles that confer Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility on older machines. Many of the same dongles made for PCs also work for Macintosh.
