Howdy,

I’ve got a couple Garadgets which will get set up at a remote location (the general use case would be like : vacation cabin, etc.) From what I can tell, there isn’t an easy way to set up the Particle part of a DIY Garadget without being on the network that it will finally reside on. I’m assuming the product Garadgets will come with firmware on them, but not clear on how much set up can occur even in that scenario before you get there.

Any thoughts on the best process for both the DIY and product versions?

If you plan to configure as much as possible prior to the final deployment I’d recommend following:

  1. create account and setup Garadgets at home
  2. when at the location use Garadget’s embedded web interface to update the WiFi connection credentials
