new features?

Postby xatax79 » Sun Nov 20, 2016 1:17 pm


Maybe can be some stupid question, but everybody talks about IoT, long battery life and higher coverage.
I have some question about:
- long range LPWAN for IoT applications (more than 1km range similar to LoRa or Sigfox) ?
- hidden SSID for the Wi-Fi network ?

Regards, Xatax

Re: hidden ssid for WiFi.

When the ESP32 offers itself up as a WiFi access point using the api "esp_wifi_set_config" its parameter is an instance of a "wifi_config_t". This has a flag called "ssid_hidden" and if set to true, the ESP32 will not broadcast its SSID.
Free book on ESP32 available here:

Hi xatax79,

Lua RTOS is available on github for ESP32:

Lua RTOS has support for LoRa WAN. All is programmed in Lua in an easy way, for example for send a LoRa frame you only need to write this:

lora.tx(false, 1, pack.pack(25.2))

Best regards,

Lua RTOS team
