Application: Network configuration method, storage medium, household appliance, client, and network configuration system (Patent ID: US20230254177A1)

The patent filed by Midea Group Co Ltd describes a household appliance network configuration method. The method involves controlling a household appliance to start a network configuration mode and a network monitoring mode. A monitoring link is established between the household appliance and a client based on the network monitoring mode. The household appliance receives network configuration information from the client and performs a network configuration connection based on this information and the network configuration mode. The process of performing the network configuration connection is monitored to obtain network configuration monitoring information, which is then transmitted to the client through the monitoring link.

The method also includes additional features such as detecting abnormalities in the network configuration connection and transmitting them to the client, allowing the client to send corresponding prompt operation information. The network configuration information includes an account number and password of a router, and the household appliance performs an initial verification of these credentials before connecting to the router. After the network configuration connection is completed, the household appliance logs into a cloud server for verification and transmits identification information to the client. The client can then perform a network configuration binding with the household appliance based on this identification information.

The patent also describes a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium that stores a household appliance network configuration program, as well as a household appliance network configuration apparatus and a household appliance itself that are configured to execute the network configuration program.

In summary, the patent filed by Midea Group Co Ltd presents a method, program, apparatus, and system for configuring a household appliance network. The method involves controlling the household appliance, establishing a monitoring link with a client, receiving network configuration information, performing a network configuration connection, monitoring the process, and transmitting monitoring information to the client. The method also includes features such as detecting abnormalities, performing initial verification, and transmitting identification information for network configuration binding.
