    Starting with C1E_02057 there is a simple method added for pairing , basically is only need to press [1] 3 seconds at -=-=-=-= on H MECHA
    then press [2] 3 seconds at -=-=-=-= on V MECHA

    MECHA will do all needed for pairing, further more changing the name/password in H MECHA will automatically change in V MECHA.

    MECHA will also automatic become paired if one MECHA is named MECHA-HXXX and the other MECHA-VXXX
    by XXX mean any sequence the same in both names and with the same Wi-Fi password.

    More details below

    ---------------8<-------------------------------

    C1E_02057
    Improvements in automatic pairing for MECHA DAC
    Added third method for pairing
    1) Start H MECHA and at -=-=-=-= press [1] 3 seconds (until multiple beeps are heard)
    2) Start V MECHA and at -=-=-=-= press [2] 3 seconds (until multiple beeps are heard)
    MECHAs will be automatic paired and will remain paired after power OFF then ON
    This procedure will create
    MECHA-H-DAC with password 12345678 and
    MECHA-V-DAC with password 12345678
    If in /config of H MECHA, the SSID name is changed and password is changed, if both MECHAs are ON and paired, the SSID and password will be changed in V MECHA as well as long as SSID starts with MECHA-H in the first one.
    So after the MECHAs are paired and the SSID and name is changed in config of H MECHA say, from
    MECHA-H-DAC to MECHA-H123 with password 87654321
    V MECHA will receive the name MECHA-V123 and same password 87654321

    As result of these, without using any method of pairing,
    a MECHA-V999 in STA mode will always try to pair with MECHA-H999 if its SSID is ON and both have the same password and only the H-V difference in SSID name.
    If MECHA V needs to be used unpaired, either press [1] short at -=-=-= or change the default mode to AP or change the name with different pattern.

    This also opens the way to pair remotely two MECHAs via support, if needed, if they can access the Internet.

    0 is the power button

    MECHA has 6 buttons

    [1] [2] [3]
    [<] [>] [0]

    What is "0" on the buttons? I couldn't get the mean.

    MECHA often offers more ways to do the same thing, please select the way which is more convenient.

    The flowing way will be also in the upcoming guide, worth to mention here as well.
    e.g. for pairing any two MECHAs (with C1E_02011 or newer) another way is just to enter

    01231231>
    on both MECHA using their buttons, starting with H MECHA

    That's all.
    From then on, every time you power MECHAs, will be paired together.

    You'll see
    MECHA-H123 SSID
    available and you can connect to it using
    01231231
    password.


    You can change the codes in something else, like 03213213> in which case will be MECHA-H321 SSID
    available and you can connect to it using the 03213213 password

    If using this way, MECHA will do all the needed changes in config automatically, just like in the guide above.

    the steps taken from the C1E_02011 description.
    ----8<-------------

    2) Power up both MECHAs and wait until -=-=-=-= ends.
    3) Choose the code, it needs to start with 0 and have 8 digits, no two identical digits one next to another and has to end with an extra ">" e.g. 01231231>
    4) Enter the code on first MECHA, the horizontal one, say it MECHA-H, using MECHA-H buttons [0] is [power]
    5) When MECHA-H beeps like 5 times enter the same code on Vertical MECHA, say it MECHA-V using MECHA-V buttons.
    6) Connect with Phone or PC to MECHA-H123 SSID, the SSID has first 3 digits after 0 in its name
    7) The password for MECHA-H123 is the code without ">" i.e. 01231231

    If you see the big [Upload Data] button and have no preset to upload
    please access the interface of H MECHA with
    192.168.8.1/row

    started a topic Guide for Pairing Two MECHAs for Dual Axis Application

    Guide for Pairing Two MECHAs for Dual Axis Application

    A more detailed guide is in preparation. This one should be enough to get started with dual axis application.
    https://nodalninja.com/Manuals/Pairi...pplication.pdf

    Guide updated to include pairing using buttons only.
