I got my bolts up and running like a dream for some funky house automation tools but I am now working on a new project where I want to see if Bolt would be able to do the following.
I want to test wifi connectivity at different spots (same network SSID) and see the speeds at these locations by means of running a few “pings” to different websites.
What I want Bolt to do:
- connect to the wifi (got that part down)
- ping 2 websites every X seconds
- report to bolt cloud the ping times
- do some learning depending on some other factors like: amount of users on wifi and throughput of certain bottlenecks in the network (i can provide all of this data)
I don’t see any way in the main “product setup” section to actually run my own code on Bolt. I don’t need any of the input / output pins of the Bolt, I just need its wifi capabilities ;). When someone does know how to run my own code on the Bolt I’m interested to know which language I can use (can I use same code as Arduino for example?)
Any help would be appriciated, let me know if any info is missing!
