That is not a Canon product.  I suggest you speak to the manufacturer, ESDDI.

For some technical reason, a non-Canon flash will not work during Live View wirelessly as stated in our manual (I have the T6I also). Perhaps there is a "hack" out there to get around this that someone knows about, I sure don't I use a Speedlite.

From the 80D manual, it looks like there is a "workaround" included for non-Canon flashes?
