Wifi network scan without connecting to access point

Is it possible to scan wi-fi networks and its RSSI using particle photon without connecting particle photon to access point. I am using SoftAP on particle photon currently. Following code gives me red flashes. Please guide me if there are any ways we can do this.

Code:-

#pragma SPARK_NO_PREPROCESSOR

#include "Particle.h"
#include "softap_http.h"


void wifi_scan_callback(WiFiAccessPoint* wap, void* data)
{
    WiFiAccessPoint& ap = *wap;
    Serial.print("SSID: ");
    Serial.print(ap.ssid);
    Serial.print("  Security: ");
    Serial.print(ap.security);
    Serial.print("  Channel: ");
    Serial.print(ap.channel);
    Serial.print("  RSSI: ");
    Serial.println(ap.rssi);
    Serial.println("-----------------------------------------------------------------------------");
    
}

void setup() {
    pinMode(D7, OUTPUT);
    
    Serial.begin(9600);
    Serial.println("Started Setup");
    
    WiFi.connect();
    WiFi.on();
    int result_count = WiFi.scan(wifi_scan_callback);
    WiFi.off();
    //Serial.print(result_count);
    Serial.println(" APs scanned.");
    Serial.println();
}

SYSTEM_THREAD(ENABLED);

If you could supply more background info.
When does the red flashing happen? (immediately, after a while, when entering Listening Mode, …)
To narrow down the causing code, add some extra Serial.print() statements.
What kind of red flashing do you see? (SOS +x)

I have used SYSTEM_THREAD(ENABLED) in code so that I can run setup() and loop() when particle photon is in SoftAP mode.

I am using following code which runs in setup() snipet i.e in application firmware. Then it gives five to six red blinks followed by some delay and again one red blink.

  1. Is there any possibility that I can get RSSI readings in setup() or loop() i.e in application firmware when photon act as a SoftAP?

  2. Is there any possibility that we can send these reading to the cloud when photon is in SoftAP ?

  3. Can we send these readings in html response which will be sent by photon acting as SoftAP when client will request data for readings (say a laptop browser) ?

    WiFiAccessPoint aps[20];
     int found = WiFi.scan(aps, 20);
     for (int i=0; i<found; i++) {
         WiFiAccessPoint& ap = aps[i];
         Serial.print("SSID: ");
         Serial.print(ap.ssid);
         Serial.print("  Security: ");
         Serial.print(ap.security);
         Serial.print("  Channel: ");
         Serial.print(ap.channel);
         Serial.print("  RSSI: ");
         Serial.println(ap.rssi);
     }

Nope, while in SoftAP mode the WiFi module currently is only acting as SoftAP but does not get connect to other APs, so no cloud available.
You might be able to drop out of SoftAP (e.g. WiFi.listen(false)), get connected to the cloud and then send the data to the cloud tho’.
But if you have a look the SoftAP sample you can see how scanning for other networks is done there.
And also how to send the found SSIDs to an attached browser.

If you just navigate to 192.168.0.1/scan-ap you’ll get a response like this
