I was finally able to unbox my Xenons (3), Argon (3), and Borons (3). During my rush to setup a device I completely forgot about my accessories. So I started building a network with the Argon first in Wifi configuration. Then I added a Xenon. and then another Xenon but this time hooked up the to Ethernet shield. Once I was done, I looked in the console and realized that the gateway is the Argon (setup first) and not the Xenon (using the Ethernet Shield). That left me scratching my head.
Why wouldn’t the Xenon on the shield not assume the Gateway as the Ethernet connection would be a reliable way to act as a Gateway.
As usual I followed the “Connect first, read instructions later” method. Now I wonder, is there some way I can dictate in code which device should be a gateway, repeater or endpoint?
Can a repeater also as an endpoint when needed? Say for example I wanting to hook an actuator to all repeaters and endpoints so when a cloud command to actuate comes in the repeater and endpoint will perform a function?
