I'm making a product based on the RPi3, is there a tool that facilitates the connection between the RPi and the local wifi network?
Like hosting a website with the wifi networks available and so on... Something like the omega2 does out of the box. I would also appreciate if you tell me if this has a name.
Chromecast fires up, puts out a Wi-Fi signal as an unsecured Access Point.
You connect to this unsecured open Wi-Fi via the Google Home App.
You tell Chromecast the logon credentials of your Wi-Fi.
The chromecast disables the Access Point and and logs onto the Home Wi-Fi.
You will likely have to write your own software "glue" to undertake a similar function in whatever Operating System you intend to install.....
