OptoEMU Sensor energy monitoring units and Opto 22 Wired+Wireless™ SNAP PAC controllers and brains can communicate wirelessly with other wireless devices in either infrastructure or ad-hoc mode.

In ad-hoc mode, wireless devices communicate directly with each other, peer-to-peer. Ad-hoc mode is less secure but useful for temporary wireless connections, because it can be set up quickly.

This technical note shows you how to configure ad-hoc mode on the OptoEMU Sensor, controller, or brain using PAC Manager. It also includes steps for configuring ad-hoc mode on a smart phone.

Use this technical note with the AdHocConfig.zip download, which includes a file to make configuration in PAC Manager easier.
