Introducing the New Stagetimer Companion Module for Stream Deck 🔌

Published 7 months ago • 1 min read

Hey there,

We’re excited to announce a powerful new addition to our offerings: the new Stagetimer module for Companion v3. This new integration empowers you to control Stagetimer using Elgato’s Stream Deck with Companion, which is often used during live video production to simplify the handling of software and hardware tools.

What is the Companion Module?

Companion is an open-source software that lets you control hardware and software like Stagetimer using Elgato’s Stream Deck. Our new Stagetimer module for Companion aims to provide you with a seamless, efficient way to manage Stagetimer from a Stream Deck device.

To leverage this, you’ll need a Stagetimer account with a Pro or Premium plan, granting you access to the API, which is required for Companion integration.

Getting Started

  1. You’ll first need an Elgato Stream Deck, a budget-friendly keypad featuring programmable LCD buttons. Get yours here.
  2. Once you have the Stream Deck, download and launch the Companion app.
  3. Within the Companion app GUI, you can add the “stagetimer.io: Stagetimer API” connection.
  4. To configure the Companion module, you’ll need to fetch your Room ID and API key from your Stagetimer account.
  5. Add these details into the Stagetimer connection on the Companion app and hit “Save”. If you see a green checkmark, that’s a successful setup!

You’re now ready to add a button! Switch to the “Buttons” tab in Companion, navigate to “Presets” → “Stagetimer API” → “Transport”, and add the “Start/Stop” button to your Stream Deck. From there, you can add other buttons as needed and get ready to manage your event!

For a more in-depth guide and further details, visit our complete documentation page at https://stagetimer.io/docs/integration-with-streamdeck-companion/. This guide includes information on using the Companion module with the offline version of Stagetimer and accessing functions not available in the module.

We hope this new Companion module makes your work easier and more efficient. Start experimenting with it today!

Cheers,
Lukas
