At first an AirMeter.io device boots and starts an access point with a captive portal (secured using a random WPA2 key) to allow the device to be configured.
Onboarding a device onto a wireless network is achieved by connecting to the device's SSID and random password using a phone or other device. These connection details are displayed on the AirMeter.io device's screen.
When a phone or a laptop connects to this SSID the browser is automatically redirected a captive portal. Through this portal the device web interface can be accessed and configured to connect to the desired network.
Once an AirMeter.io device is connected to a wireless network in station mode the captive portal is disabled.
