After reading other topics regarding claiming photons, I’m still confused. When I first set up a new Photon, the final step after connecting to the WiFi, etc. is “Verifying Product Ownership.” I also note that with the Particle App I have the option to Unclaim a device.
I just built a Photon device for someone and it soon disappeared from my dashboard. After checking with him, I found he simply set up a Particle account and claimed the device. I didn’t think this was possible without me first unclaiming the device but I see now that it is. It was no big deal in this instance as I want him to have complete control of the device and hopefully have as much fun with it as I do but it did catch me by surprise.
My question: What “ownership” is being verified if anyone with a Particle account and access to the device can claim it?
