A new android application is born

  • KaRadio Remote Control by Vassilis Serasidis on google Play.

It is an easy and fast WiFi remote control for your KaRadio or KaRadio32 hardware.
With this android app you can select the WebRadio station you want to play, set the volume and get the station information such as Station name, Genre, Bit rate, Meta data and more.

First use

  • If the acces point of your router is not known, the webradio inits itself as an AP. Connect the wifi of your computer to the ssid "WifiWebRadio",
  • Browse to 192.168.4.1 to display the page, got to "setting" "Wifi" and configure your ssid ap, the password if any, the wanted IP or use dhcp if you know how to retrieve the dhcp given ip (terminal or scan of the network).
  • In the gateway field, enter the ip address of your router.
  • Validate. The equipment restart to the new configuration. Connect your wifi to your AP and browse to the ip given in configuration.
  • Congratulation, you can edit your own station list. Dont forget to save your stations list in case of problem or for new equipments.
  • if the AP is already know by the esp8266, the default ip is given by dhcp.
