I am as new as a person can be to Spark, but am impressed and will definitely try to make couple of projects. I was wondering about the possible methods for connecting a Spark Core to a Wi-Fi network.
By the currently given options (as far as I know), I would either use the Android/iOS Spark Core App, or connect the Core to my PC via USB and send the commands to the Core.
With only these options being available, I find it limited. What if, let’s say, I give my friend a Spark Core, go at his home, connect it to his Wi-Fi from the Android/iOS Spark Core App, set up everything else and afterwards, my friend changes his Wi-Fi password. I would have to come at his home again and redo the steps.
Like a solution for this problem, I would like to be able to make a Custom Android/iOS App that will be able to perform the same things that the Spark Core App can, (identify Cores, connect them to Wi-Fi and claim them). I could hard-code the Spark Core id of the Core that I’ve given to my friend and he’ll be able to communicate with only that Core via the Custom App that I have given to him.
So, my question would be, is there a way that I could create such an app. How does the app detect a Core, send commands to a Core, claim a Core etc…
Thanks in advance!!!
