Specs: New App
Platforms: Android and iOS
Purpose: Remotely control a bridge in a LAN
Desired User experience:
1. Download App from Android or iOS onto mobile device (such as phone or iPad).
2. Use the App to discover a new bridge (wifi enabled device with ESP32 chip).
3. Use the App to configure the bridge to the LAN and maintain security.
4. Use the App to control the bridge for basic commands to separate devices
The bridge to be controlled by the App already has the capability to send RF signals, and that is its only function. The app does not need to record commands or store data.
An example of a similar functioning product is Philips Hue lighting, where you connect the bridge to the LAN, and then an App commands the bridge to control various lights. This is not a lighting project, and the commands for the bridge are fewer and less complex than Hue.
