We’re looking to have a WiFi setup option that is as easy as possible for customers.
We are currently using the 2-Legged-Auth method and connecting customers via our webapp and the SoftAP server on the device. This method works fine, but not 100% of the time.
I am wondering if it would be possible to simplify this flow for customers by taking care of most of the setup work ahead of time and then have them simply turn on the device, “Connect to WiFi”, by entering their network credentials, and bam, they’d be online.
Ahead of time we would need to:
- assign the device to our product
- generate a claim code, add a customer email that is associated with that device
- get the device setup on WiFi
Are there any issues with this plan? Since I haven’t seen it mentioned on the forums, I’m assuming I’ve missed some glaring small detail…
