Connecting ESP32 to WLAN

Post by javargas26 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 2:28 am

I need to conect the ESP to the internet but not in a local network. I need to be able to meassure the light from the street ligh lamp and send it to a database.

Where there's no WLAN, you can't connect to it. :) You'd need a GRPS/LTE module. Here someone used one to build a mobile phone with MicroPython: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4038&p=23408

Or use a mobile phone or a small battery driven wlan/grps router as an access point.
