When the ATOM is first powered up it will try to connect to WiFi, if successful it will display a green W, if still trying the W will be red. If it can't connect it will drop into Access Point mode and display a blue A.

If this is your first time setting it up, you will connect to the default AP address but you'll need to know what IP address has been assigned to the ATOM. If you press the screen (it's a button too) it will display the IP address it's at so you can switch to that network and log into the ATOM and configure it for your real network and Wifi.

Once you get the real WiFi configured it will start looking for a connection to vMix and flash a red V while it's trying to connect. Once connected it will display a green V and then go into Tally mode.

In Tally mode it displays a full screen of Red, Green or nothing for Live, Preview and Safe respectively.

I have designed the code so that it works on the original M5Stick or the ATOM Matrix.

Almost ready for release - just still doing some final testing.


Great work Mark! If the testing is done, I could refer to your project from my GitHub repo if people are trying to find a solution for the ATOM. Let me know where to link to (I'd prefer a Git-ish (GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket) location, so that it's in-line with my open source project). Let me know when you're done. Awesome to see that people are forking it and making it available for more platforms, I appreciate that :)

Progress on the ATOM Matrix Tally Light:

I have completed what I believe to be the final round of testing and I made a few changes to my previous report:

Upon power-up the screen can stay blank for a while, which can be disconcerting, so I added a green P (for power) that displays at power-up until it connects or starts trying to connect.

The green W will display if the Tally Light is connected to a device in Access Point mode. (The red W has been eliminated.) Once you are beyond that and it's connected to your real WiFi network, it will display a red V while trying to connect to vMix. I removed the flashing. If it can't connect to vMix after trying for a few minutes, it will display a blue C prompting you to either Connect or reConnect to vMix. Pressing the screen button while in this mode or while it's connected to vMix will display the Tally Light's IP address, one digit at a time. I also added a brief period of a blank screen in between digits so you can tell if a digit is repeated.

I have now tested these in the real world and I can say that they are working well. Very bright and very visible even over long distances. (Our cameras are about 50-60ft from the talent.)

A final note: We are using NDI cameras with Power Over Ethernet, and they also have a USB port. We aren't using the USB for communicating or getting the stream from the camera, but they do provide power. So that was a very convenient way to get power to the Tally Lights.

Just released v2.0.1:

🐛 M5Stick-C Original should be the default configuration, not the PLUS

Check it on GitHub

I'm working on a pretty nifty feature that allows you to select the wifi SSID using a selectbox rather than a text field. No worries, you'll still able to select a hidden SSID network. Just wait for v2.1.0 😄
