Hi, I’ve started deploying hardware to beta testers but the WiFi credentials are becoming a deployment hurdle. The hardware and imps are registered against my name but I’d like the users to only have to enter their WiFi credentials. Here’s how it’s been playing out:
Testers meet me to collect the hardware, I get them to enter their WiFi credentials into my iphone to be blinked-up (not a good look). Often people with ISP supplied home routers have cryptic SSID’s and they get it wrong, or get the password wrong, or the blink-up doesn’t work properly but it’s all a big unknown until they get home and try. If it doesn’t work then I have to tee-up a time and place to try again, and then sometimes again.
Is it possible to have an app that just lets the end-user set only the WiFi SSID and password? That way I can associate the hardware with my account, ship the hardware, have the end user blink-up just their WiFi credentials, then relax.
(Also is it possible to have the IMP give some feedback about the blink-up being successful when the actual WiFi access-point isn’t present? Maybe a few flashes orange.)
Thank you for a great product,
