Background I am starting a new project, and I want custom IOT sensors for an app I am writing. I want to keep everything as simplistic as possible so the IOT devices wont be running any major software or anything, I want them to be as simple as send and receive curl statements(I know they will have to have something but for design I want to assume they are dumb as possible so I don't make assumptions).
Question: So the one thing I am not sure about is how I will make the initial connection between the app and the IOT device without it connected to the internet. I was thinking about trying to set up a HTTP Listener on the app with the IOT Device set to make connection with "Default SSID" on start up if connection has not been created yet. I figure once that call is made the app 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 standard way mainstream IOT devices make connections initially?
Thanks in advance :) Just don't want to end up 6 months in with a bad design approach.
