Hexiwear – connect to the cloud directly over WiFi or 3G network
Posted by Lana Vulic on 12 June 2017 04:03 PM
From now on you can connect to your cloud directly from Hexiwear by sending data over WiFi and 3G networks. No need to use your phone anymore. Right after releasing the Hexiwear firmware in mikroC, we are presenting you with a new, amazing feature, that will make your life easier.
Set up the parameters
Place Hexiwear on the Docking Station, add WiFi3 click or 3G SARA click, take your phone. This is beginning to sound like a cake recipe.
You can either set the WiFi parameters – network name and password, or set the 3G parameters, and press “SET VALUES”. You can even choose the position of the click on the Docking Station.
Once you set up the parameters you are done, the device will remember them. Open your account and access all the sensor readings from your Hexiwear.
You’ll use the same Wolkabout account as before. With all the sensor data visualized and carefully arranged, you can monitor the data without any trouble.
