QR Code for phone authentication

From my understanding, the only wireless authentication mechanism for connecting phones to Edge Impuls’ server is using a QR code. But my project involves a remote device (i.e., from another country ). Is there a way to connect devices from another country without using a QR code? Please do not suggest I give my Edge Impulse credential to the guys in another country so they can use the QR code and connect their phones.

Many thanks in advance

Hello @nash,

Yes you can use ingestion API key. Go to your project’s dashboard. On the top of the page you will see Keys. From there you can create API Keys (admin or ingestion) depending on your use case.



Thank you, I got the API Key. Is there a manual/documentation on how to use it to stream data from a remote phone? Do I have to develop a phone app?

Nevermind, I figured it out

Hello @nash ,

Thanks for the update, feel free to share your solution here as it will probably help other users too :wink:



I am glad to share; below are the steps to follow.

Anyone interested in getting data from his friend’s phone can follow the following steps:

  1. Create an API key for his specific project
  2. Then send your friend this syntax: GET API method.
    Mobile client - Edge Impulse

Then the phone will be connected to the edge impulse server.
