How to add sensors to an Overlay

Overlays can be customized with a variety of sensors. You can load multiple sensors simultaneously on an Overlay, and besides the available display space, there isn’t much limit to how many you can load.

Ultimately the location of a sensor on the overlay won’t matter since you can precisely place and scale the rendered visual later in your video production application. But nevertheless, we do provide users with a 1920×1080 overlay area.

Step 1: Login to the Dashboard

Head over to the http://my.overlay.live page and login with your account credentials.

Step 2: Select the Overlay you wish to configure

In the sidebar on the left-hand side of the Dashboard click on the overlay that you wish to add a sensor onto. This will open the Overlay inspector with the green overlay preview area.

Step 3: Select a sensor from the Sensor menu

At the top of the Overlay inspector there is a “Sensor” menu. In this menu, you will find a list of all the sensors registered by your devices. (no matter if the device is online or offline). Select the sensor you wish to add. Et voila!

Add sensors to an Overlay on overlay.live and change the way it displays

Note: you can then double click onto the sensor box in the green preview area to adjust simple settings such as font color, background color, font type, etc.
