Configuring the upload parameters if you use Windows

As stated, the Upload to Cloud feature is still in Beta.

The procedure for configuring is a little complicated but will get simple in future releases.

The driver for the serial port on the RID chip needs to be installed on your Windows.

To download the driver click here.

Now you can install the driver by clicking on CH9102_WIN.exe in the .zip that was downloaded.

After you install the driver you should probably reboot the PC.

Now you want to launch the "putty" app. It should already be on your PC. If it isn't you can get it at

Once you launch putty you need to select the "serial" option and select the COM port. It will probably be COM1, COM2, COM3, or COM4.

After you have connected you should see a list of options

To add a SSID enter 1 followed by a carriage return (<CR>)

You will then get presented with a list of SIDS that the chip sees.
NOTE: The chip will only detect 2.4G frequencies. It will not see 5.8 WIFI networks.

If you have a relatively new iPhone you need to go to settings-->Personal Hotspot and turn on Maximize Compatibility.
Once you have done that you need to power off your iPhone and power it back up.

If your iPhone is currently on a WIFI network it will not create a hot spot. You must disconnect your phone from all WIFI networks before it will create a hotspot.

If you don't want to take your phone off an existing wifi network you can select option 0 after scanning for wifi networks. This will allow you to manually enter your hotspot name and password. The chip will not be able to confirm the name and/or password are correct so make sure you enter everything correctly.

If you want the chip to connect to the hotspot network you might have to manually disable and re-enable "Allow Others to join" in the Personal hotspot settings.
