Can I link esp-eye to my home WiFi

Postby smbunn » Sat Apr 13, 2019 2:44 am

I finally got the demo application 'recognition_solution" running. The Windows guide gets you to try out 'hello_world'. DO NOT DO THIS!!
The hello_world example has its own IDF which is incompatible with the ESP-EYE. A full uninstall and re-install of the MSYS32 environment, then git pull of the ESP-WHO files and re-initialise of the requirements.txt got me going.

The ESP-EYE even recognized faces but tends to crash after a few minutes. The image is upside down as many people point out.
Linking into its own WiFi SSID is a pain, as it only appears as an SSID after you say "Hi Lotion" or is that "Hi Low Shin" as I can't pronounce the Chinese wake up word. I actually have the downloaded sample word play thru my speakers to wake up the chip. Why did Esspresif choose a word we Westerners cannot pronounce?

Anyway that is not my question. I wanted to have the esp-eye device join my home network rather than set up its own SSID. That way hopefully I can also get it to accept an IP Address by DHCP and then use my desktop browser to open the face_stream window.

Is this possible? Secondly I wanted it to send confirmation of identified face and ID via MQTT to my MQTT broker. I saw that the MQTT library was part of the build. Can anyone point me in the right direction to any documentation that will guide me? I am assuming that the general ESP32 chip means I can use any functions written for that chipset and they should compile and transfer to the ESP-EYE OK?
