M-Series smart glasses FAQ

Vuzix M-Series smart glasses deliver a "hands free" digital world, providing unprecedented access to information, data collection and more. Improve existing workflows and open a new opportunities in industrial, medical, retail, supply chain, remote help desk and other aspects of your business.

Can I cast the screen of my M-Series Smart Glasses?

Yes, the M-Series Smart Glasses support the Miracast streaming standard. To cast your screen, go to the Display section of the M-Series Smart Glasses Settings application and select "Cast screen". You will need to activate the “Enable wireless display” option which can be found in the context menu of this screen, which can be accessed with a long-press on the forward button closest to the display on the M-Series Smart Glasses. Once enabled, the M-Series Smart Glasses will scan for available Miracast devices and then allow you to cast your screen to a device you select.

Can I use the Vuzix Smart Glasses Manager application with the M-Series Smart Glasses?

No, SG Manager only supports the M100 at this time.

There are a number of third-party applications which will allow for remote control of the M-Series Smart Glasses either via USB or WiFi. We have evaluated Vysor (USB and WiFi) and AirDroid (WiFi only). Both applications are developed by third parties and have some connectivity issues not unique to the M-Series Smart Glasses, but they do work.

The M-Series Smart Glasses also support input from Bluetooth peripheral devices, including mice and keyboards.

Can I use voice commands to control the M-Series Smart Glasses?

Yes, the M-Series Smart Glasses Speech Recognition engine includes a set of basic navigation and control commands by default. These commands are globally accessible on the M-Series Smart Glasses while the recognizer is enabled. Currently, these commands are available in US English only, with additional languages coming soon.

To enable, go to Speech Recognition in the Settings application and toggle the “Enable Vuzix Speech Recognition” option. From this screen, you can also modify the level, sensitivity and timeout settings of the Speech Recognition engine. Level will adjust microphone gain, sensitivity will adjust the amount of accuracy required by the recognizer when listening for a phrase, and timeout will adjust how long the recognizer will continue listening for commands after the keyword or the last voice command is issued. By default, the timeout is 15 seconds. Setting the timeout slider to the maximum value will set the timeout to an unlimited value, though it is important to keep in mind this will increase battery usage by the recognizer.

To issue voice commands, you must first speak the “Hello Vuzix” keyword to trigger the listener which will remain active for the timeout duration. Issuing additional commands will reset this timeout. See the list below for the current set of stock voice commands and their functions.

Does the M-Series Smart Glasses support the Google Play Store?

The M-Series Smart Glasses are not a CTS (Compatibility Test Suite) compliant device and does not support the Play Store or other Google Mobile Services (GMS) not covered by the Android Open Source license. 

How can I connect my M-Series Smart Glasses to a WiFi network?

For most users, the simplest way to connect the M-Series Smart Glasses to a WiFi network is by generating a QR code using your computer or smartphone and scanning it on the M300.  Vuzix provides a browser-based tool to generate such a QR code on https://www.vuzix.com/wifiQR. To maintain your security, this tool generates the QR code locally within your browser.  The tool does not transmit your SSID or password to our servers.

Once you have a QR code, open the Scanner application from the M-Series Smart Glasses main launcher, scan the QR code, and click the "Connect To Network" button. 

If scanning a QR code does not meet your needs, you can manually view and connect to networks.

From the WiFi section of the M300 Settings application, enable the WiFi by toggling Off to On. The M300 will then scan for available networks. Scroll down to the network you want to connect to and select it. A standard Android keyboard will come up if the network is password protected. Use this keyboard to enter the password. The touchpad and buttons can be used to navigate the soft keyboard.

Advanced WiFi settings can be accessed from the context menu on the WiFi settings page, by long-pressing on the forward button closest to the M-Series Smart Glasses display and selecting "Advanced". This will show you your WiFi MAC and IP address, as well as allow you to modify other advanced settings such as restricting the wireless to 5GHz WiFi bands.
