Simplifying Wi-Fi Provisioning for IoT Products

Demonstrating provisioning WiFi via Bluetooth

4 WI-FI PROVISIONING METHODS

Save time, money, in-field support issues, reputation…by keeping it simple and field testing your method thoroughly

BLE

  • Leverage smart device UI & BLE
  • Send network credentials to end-device via BLE
  • End-device connects to AP w/SSID & Key

AP MODE

  • End-device initially configured as AP & hosts web server
  • Smart device connects to end-device & changes AP to STA & provides permanent AP credentials
  • End-device connects to permanent AP

SIMPLE CONFIG

  • Install Android APK file
  • Smart device connects to AP & WLAN profile is sent over the air to APP
  • End-device listens & captures OTA profile & connects to AP (config with & without PIN options available)
