Espressif’s ESP-TOUCH protocol implements the Smart Config technology to help users connect ESP8266EX-embedded devices to a Wi-Fi network through simple configuration on a smartphone.
ESP-TOUCH Functional Overview
ESP-TOUCH is supported by the ESP8266 OS SDK and NONOS SDK as well as the ESP-IDF SDK for ESP32.
The SDKs also integrate the AirKiss protocol developed by Wechat, so that users can configure the device either via the ESP-TOUCH App or on the Wechat client-side.
