I’m using Photons in an installation where someone turns on the power strip in the morning, and turns it off in the evening. Photons turn on, sync up to the WiFi, and everything is all good.
I wanted to add a few Electrons, just because I have them. In other projects, I always use the Electrons with USB power and a Lipo battery (a light on the board flickers without the battery, so I’m assuming it needs it).
I always remove the Electron’s battery when I turn the power off, but I won’t be there at the installation, and I can’t ask the person to remove the battery.
So is there a way to add an Electron to this kind of installation without removing the battery?
I’m asking this for this installation, but also for future ones, where I won’t have WiFi and will need cellular.
Thanks in advance.
