RE: Wifi Setup using Mobile App (IOS)
I have started a new thread as the last one was getting confused with the web option to setup Wifi credentials (which is a great idea, but with no delivery date as yet).
The mobile app requires the current user to register the device with Particle. This is not practical when looking to use the Particle device in consumer products.
This is a typical use case for anyone wanting to sell a Particle based product to customers:
- The company claims the device.
- The company sets up wifi, uploads custom firmware and tests.
- The device is sent out to a customer.
- The customer registers or logins to the company (used to link the customer to this device) and sets up the device wifi credentials using a mobile app, without having to claim the device.
This has to support devices that are packaged with no user access to reset buttons, etc.
I have confirmed that currently there isn’t a way to support this fundamental process. Until this is in place, I am sitting on product that I cannot use and my project is stalled.
I appreciate a lot of effort is going into the splitting up of the current process. However, what would be particularly helpful would be some firm delivery dates for the revised IOS libs to support this real world use of Particle deployment.
