I am about to update 10 units that i use at my school for education, I could real use a 3rd feature on the long button push: “Force it back to AP-mode”. would that be possible and would that be a safety issue?
It that is not possible, what can I do to force the Emonpi to AP-mode after a factory reset?.
It is very time consuming to rewrite all 10 SD cards to accomplish that feature.
To force an EmonPi back into AP mode, go into ‘WiFi’ from settings and deselect the currently selected WLAN. Click on save and then refresh. You will still have access to the emoncms instance. Navigate to the admin menu and click reboot.
The EmonPi will now come up in AP mode (as no network is configured).
