We often need to deploy our environmental monitoring systems at sites that have WiFi, but require a user to confirm their acceptance of the location’s acceptable use policy. In the past, I’ve used the Electric Imp platform, but the device is only able to talk to its cloud service and, therefore, cannot navigate through the page that’s presented. Consequently, we end up deploying a cellular modem to provide independent internet service to the device. Obviously, this brings additional cost and complexity.
I’m wondering if anyone is experienced with utilizing a Particle in an application that requires getting through such an acceptance webpage. If so, can you share any thoughts/guidance? I’m wondering if the HttpClient library might be part of the solution, but asking here before I invest too much time heading that direction.
