- Press and hold the button shown below for 3-5 seconds to enter SETUP mode.
- Once the board is in SETUP mode, it enables a wireless network that a laptop or cell phone can connect to. This wireless network will appear as “PHOTON-xxxx” where “xxxx” is a string of letters that identifies your specific board.
- If your device has successfully connected to the Photon board’s network, use the web browser on your device and type “192.168.0.1” into the address bar. This will bring you to the network configuration screen where you can select the name of your Wi-Fi network and enter the corresponding password.
NOTE: if using a cell phone, you may need to disconnect the cellular network for this step to work properly.
- That’s it! The board is now connected and has the ability to communicate in real-time.
