Anyone know if it’s possible to have a photon or core claimed by multiple users at this point? Once the device is claimed can only that particular user control it, or can you add more claimants? (Is that right word? :P)
I have a few sparks running around my house for some home automation projects. I’d like to be able to add users (with my own backend) that have limited abilities within the app. I can pretty easily parse out abilities based on user type in my app… But I’m not sure how to log them into the spark cloud.
A device can only be claimed to one user account (user/password).
However, you can share the access token string between multiple devices (in a secure way) if you wish several devices to control it without sharing the username/password.
There is no limit to the number of devices a user can claim.
