So I’m having issues claiming ownership of my particle photon. I’m the 3rd person on this project, everyone else says they’ve never got it to connect so it’s fresh out of the box device.
I have the particle.io app on my phone which i was told is all I would need to add the device to my que of devices.
I follow the instructions verbatim: Ensure my wifi is activated, hold the button til the blue light flashes, look for photon xxxx in wifi connections, connect, return to app on my phone, choose a network to connect to, enter password for said network, pop up says : would you like to claim ownership of this device, yes, goes through the connection, light begins breathing cyan, additional light turns on, then my app says that I am unable to claim ownership of device. WTF am i doing wrong? Did i miss a step? I am in no way shape or form a software programmer and i am completely out of my element but my work put this on my to figure out so that’s what I am attempting to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
