No, you had it right the first time.  In the shell test statement a
single = is used for equality testing.  Use of == is a bash extension.
You should use = for portable shell programming.

  if [ `tty` = "/dev/tty1" ]; then

Of course for something like this I would prefer case.

  case $(tty) in
    /dev/tty1) : do something ;;
