Possible for intermediate parent to connect with WiFi as well?

Postby hassan789 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 5:42 pm

Possible for intermediate parent/leaf to connect with WiFi as well as be part of the mesh?

I have a mesh with 15 devices in my mesh. I would like to have a socket open with 1 (or more devices) for command and control directly from my laptop (through TCP/IP).

Or potentially duty cycle between being a leaf & normal station?

Hi hassan789,

Yes it's feasible, we can stop Mesh and then enable normal wifi task or otherwise. However the switch between these two functions can generate a delay.

Could you share us your user scenario that we may have some different ideas ? Why would you want to control the deviece directly when you can already control it through mesh network ?

Looking for a method to debug complex mesh issues, and corner cases like crashes.
Another thought I had was running BLE (gatt-server) on all of them, and viewing logs that way. or maybe ESPNOW?

Thanks! :D

yes, we are using ESP-NOW for debuging, please refer to this demo : https://github.com/espressif/esp-mdf/tr ... less_debug
