We are building a product on top of Photon and are defining the specs for the user experience when used from the Browser. Trying to figure out if the Web App would be able to initiate Photon Soft AP.
Imagine customer boots into their laptop/desktop/mobile phone browser, logs into our site and wants to add a new product and use it. We would like once the product is added that the user gets to pair it to their Wifi network as well, is it possible to trigger Soft AP from the browser. The way i see is the same Soft AP process could guide the user to connect their computer to the Photon’s wifi and then exchange the credentials while being in the browser. Similar to what the SDK’s do, is it possible or planned for the near term? What’s the alternative if this is not supported? We ask customers to setup Soft AP on their own, claim the device and then login to the site?
