To control the NINJA V via the AtomRemote app, an AtomX SYNC Module and an Apple iOS device running iOS 12 or later, or a Mac running macOS 10.15 (Catalina) or later is required.
Setting up the AtomRemote app:
Before you start, ensure that Bluetooth is enabled on your device. AtomRemote uses Bluetooth LE to connect to the NINJA V, so there's no need to navigate through the Bluetooth menu in iOS. The following steps will get you up and running.
You can also watch the AtomRemote setup guide on our YouTube channel.
AirGlu Bluetooth Remote control via the Atom Remote App is currently not supported when using ATOMOS CONNECT. This feature is coming soon.
Attach the AtomX SYNC module to your NINJA V and attach a power source.
Power on your NINJA V
Open the AtomRemote app and choose Ninja as the device you want to control.
When you open the app for the first time, you need to grant permission for AtomRemote to use Bluetooth to communicate with ATOMOS devices. Tap OK in the pop-up dialog to confirm.
On the NINJA V, tap the top info bar and swipe across to the Sync Config menu. Tap on Pair in the Bluetooth section to enter Pairing Mode.
Compare the pairing ID on both your NINJA V and the AtomRemote app. If the code matches, tap Accept Code Above on the AtomRemote app to begin pairing.
After successfully pairing the devices, a white Remote icon will appear on the display. Set the Ninja to Remote mode by tapping this icon. --
If you don't set the Ninja to Remote mode after completing the pairing process, you may be able to pair the same iOS/macOS device multiple times with your Ninja. This results in the app flashing back and forth to the pairing screen.
The remote icon will turn blue, to indicate the fact that the NINJA V is in remote mode. You can now control your NINJA V from the AtomRemote app. Tap this icon again to return to touchscreen control.
If you accidentally pair your remote device multiple times with the same Ninja, we recommend using the "Unpair All" option within the Ninja's Sync Config menu. This will reset the Ninja's pairing to the default state and allows you to re-pair your remote device. But please only once this time.
