The WIFI-B4 Link has a WiFi client built in which must connect to a WiFi network you have provided. This network must be connected to a SKAARHOJ controller that can send data to the WIFI-B4 Link.
Now it will create an open Access Point with the SSID ”WIFI-B4 Link”. Connect to this network, open a webbrowser and go to 192.168.10.99. Here you will find a web interface where you can configure the parameters. Save, move the camera selector switch away from position ”A” and power cycle the device.
