Finally the holidays gave me some time to put together some stuff for my rockets. These wifi switches will let me turn on my altimeters with my phone. Cool stuff

Oh cool! I looked closer and see that those are the new WiFi switches from Eggtimer. Niiiiiice! Those should be another great enhancement for the hobby when it comes to the dreaded switch mounting and access choices on current av bays. Anything but the smallest av bays should be able to benefit nicely from them. Eager to hear some feedback after you've had a chance to put them to use. :)

Teddy,
It so easy. Basically the SSID comes up as a wifi channel on your phone and you enter the keycode that is on the package. My phone remember the passcode. Then you go to your internet connection and it 168.XXX.1.1 ( something like that and then the screen above appears. Super easy. The arm code refreshes every 60 seconds so you can't accidently turn the altimeters on unless you want to.
