Can anybody tell me how the Particle (Photon/Core) WiFi setup works?
I am looking to mimic this WiFi configuration format for my own device.
The basic steps are as follows:
- Power device on; put in "listening mode" if not already active;
- Connect smartphone to the wireless network that you want to connect your device to;
- Open the Tinker/Spark/whatever-it's-called App on your smartphone; choose "Add New Device";
- Enter wireless password;
- Wait for device to be discovered by the App; device is now connected to WiFi.
How is the information (SSID, password) transferred from the smartphone to the device?
Thanks in advance.
