I have read through a few blogs and watched videos of setting up the R3. What I have accomplished to date is the following:
- Paired the R3 with ewelink cell app. I can turn it on and off from the app.
- I have a jumper on the pins to put the R3 into DIY mode
- Updated the firmware to version 3.6.0
I see according to the sonoff documentation there is a REST API where I can flash the firmware with a HTTP call. However I was not able to access any of the rest endpoint. I tried using 192.168.1.1XX(I have only allowed 4 devices on the network via DHCP)
Does the wifi SSID need to be
ITEAD-XXXXXXXXXX. I have the SSID set to
sonoffDiy as per another set of documentation.
sonoff reference documentation I am referring to -> http://developers.sonoff.tech/sonoff-diy-mode-api-protocol.html
