This is a popular request, and we’re looking into ways to add WiFi control to SmartMatrix. There’s no wireless built into the display, just USB connectivity, so the solution must involve adding another device that can receive WiFi and send commands over USB to the display.
There are a lot of things you could do with WiFi. What are the features that are most important to you?
- Add GIFs to be stored on the display for playback later
- Stream video in realtime from your computer to the display
- Choose what content to show on the display (instead of using the remote)
- Update scrolling messages
- What else?
