    Default Espixel stick small setup

    I have one matrix setup with tge espixel stick board. I need to take that matrix with me to setup at a offsite location.

    I have a wifi router with me for the wifi to the board. Can i use a raspberrypi with fpp to control this offsite as well as have sound come out of the pi?

    Yes. Load the sequence on the pi work audio. Make sure you set IP information on all devices as static. Hook up the pi with ethernet to the router. Plug in power and you are good to go. You can even set a schedule up to run 24hrs so that way when power is applied, it will automatically run.

    Here's my mobile setup: 12v SLA for the ESPixel Stick and Deco Router, 5v Buck converter for the Raspberry Pi and USB Speakers

    I should be able to control a parade of ESPixel bikes but then still rejoin the home show network when the mesh Deco gets close enough. I'm currently running FPP, but am thinking LEDfx will be better for the random positioning in the parade.
