Hello! I recently bought the rhythm starter pack to supplement my existing panels. This left me with an extra controller and a few extra panels I thought I would bring to work.
The trouble is at work there is AP isolation setup. So even though I can start the setup process and get the panels connected to the wifi, they cannot finish the setup process with the app. The panels updated themselves, and I imagine IFTTT would work if setup completed, but I cannot contact them with the app.
Is there any way I can finish setup at home and bring them in and connect them to wifi here? I don't really care about using the app if IFTTT works.

Also, is 16021 the only port needed to be opened? Once setup I could use node or python to interact with the device.

Hoping there is a solution. Thanks!

@Nathan perhaps you might know of a way or have some inside knowledge? :)

You can activate hotspot for localized control. Hold the power and select buttons for 30-40 seconds until it flashes rapidly and then manually connect to the wifi network that shows up.

@Nathan Ah yes, this does work for direct control. Thank you!

However once setup is there a way I can change it back to the building wifi and work through IFTTT without having to go through the setup again? Or is direct control the only option?

It should be possible. You can reset wifi only by pressing power then select and then repeat 5 time (10 total clicks). You can setup wifi only using iOS Wifi Settings (at the bottom). You will trade off local control for integration control though. Note that when you use iOS settings to setup wifi it will appear to fail but the light will turn off (you probably already noticed this). Things rely on mDNS, which is likely blocked on your work network.

Yes, it works! Thank you.

From here I can get some stuff unblocked (not AP Isolation, but necessary ports). Thanks again for your help Nathan! :-)
