I am just wondering if it is possible to connect multiple photon to a smart phone via wifi, with no Internet support and Particle cloud support. The purpose is to gather data from all the Photon to the smart phone in (almost) real time.
There are already some similar topics:
Connecting a Photon to a Photon & an iPhone (No Cloud)
Talk to Core/Photon over Wifi, but no local network available?
It seems that I can either:
- Use one of the Photon as an AP, and all the other Photon and the smart phone connects to this AP. But someone mentioned that with the softAP, one Photon can only talk to another one at the same time.
- Use the smart phone as the AP, and all the Photon connect to it. I haven’t seen anyone did this before and do know if it would be actually possible.
I would appreciate it if anyone could kindly give me some suggestions on it.
Thanks in advance!
