I have the latest version of the M5Stack gray, but the board also reads 2018.3. I am going to try out your code that you used for M5StickC on my M5Stack Gray with PlatformIO.
I will report back how it went. All I want is a wake up on movement :). The same thing you got running on your M5StickC.
Yes it is installed and all the IMU examples work. Deep sleep wake up with timer or button press works too.
But I need to go into deep sleep and wake up when the M5Stack is moved. That would be awesome!
I just bought a M5 FACES kit and started playing with it.
Quite excited to dive deeper in these funny little IoT modules.
I'm having an issue with the keyboard. I'm not sure what the issue is but I was unable to make any of the three keyboards work.
I've installed the usb driver, installed M5Burner and updated the firmware with CORE UIFlow V.1.5.4-en
I followed the whole UIFlow tutorial including the helloM5 (https://docs.m5stack.com/#/en/quick_start/m5core/m5stack_core_get_started_MicroPython) Everything seems fine until I tried to add FACES functionalities in UIFlow and got this error:
Any idea on how to solve this issue?
I tried both on my Mac and my PC, same issue which makes me think it's an hardware issue but I didn't see any broken/bend pins or any obvious defect so I'm little bit lost...
Thanks in advance,
I just thought, you were using the ui flow firmware previously right. I think there is an issue if you have flashed one of the micropython firmwares and try to use arduino afterwards without completely wiping the memory. Please try to use the erase tool in the M5 burner tool and then try and flash an arduino sketch again
Well, I have a couple of spots in my project that a button press would make things very easy. For example, I'm using M5ez for my interface, and use Blynk to display events on the M5 screen. I have backlight timeout set to 30 seconds. A new event doesn't turn the backlight back on, but a keypress does. So, in my if (newEvent) loop, I could have a M5.BtnA.press(), that would wake up the screen. Can I go into the M5ez library, figure out what happens after a real button press to wake the screen and replicate that? Yes, of course, and I have certainly tried that, but some of the items that need to be set are private, so calling them from a main loop is problematic. Rewriting that stuff so it's all public might work, but that solves one problem. I'd also like menus to time out - if there's no activity after going into a menu, I'd like it to time out and go back to the main menu. Again, code can certainly make that happen, but a M5.BtnA.press() would be a lot easier to implement... Does this make sense?
This means the M5Stack is officially certified for use with Microsoft Azure cloud services.
Below is a link to a video demo showing how to connect M5Stack to Azure using Mongoose OS. This video is targeted at Mac users but Mongoose OS can also be used on Windows or Linux.
