I start a new project and I want custom IOT sensors for an application that I write. I want everything to be as simplistic as possible so that IOT devices can not run any major software or anything else, I want them to be as simple as sending and receiving loop declarations (I know that They will have to have something, but for the design, I want to assume that they are as stupid as possible, so I do not make any assumptions).
I am not sure how I will establish the initial connection between the application and the IOT device without an Internet connection. I was thinking of trying to configure an HTTP listener on the application with the IOT device configured to connect to "SSID by default" at startup if the connection has not yet been created. I guess once this call is made, the application can handle the rest of the connections.
I was wondering if this approach is valid and is it possible in Android? Is there a better, more standardized way that traditional IOT devices make connections
Thanks in advance 🙂 Just do not want to finish 6 months with a wrong design approach.
