I have a question re: the feasibilty of using the Particle Core / Photon for the following project. I would like to create a tool for my technicians in the field, where the Core / Photon can be used to measure some values and then communicate that information to a laptop at a remote location (30 meters away).
With the digital / analog / I2C inputs, I think that the Core can be easily interfaced with the values I’m trying to measure. My question is how to communicate with the PC.
In this application, there will be no internet access. I was thinking I could bundle a small router (TP-Link WR702N) along with the Core and then create a small network with 2 Wifi nodes (Core + PC). However, it seems from what I’ve seen in my “messing about” so far is that the Core wants to get to the Internet / Cloud - from which it appears that the html app gets it’s data - which is not going to be possible for my application.
Rather than me continuing to spin my wheels on this - I thought that perhaps one of the helpful people in this community might have a path forward for me - if there is one…
Thank you in advance.
